Do you sell an external drive case for a PC 3.5-inch disk drive and Greaseweazle 4.1?

@Hammer

I'd assume it would be option would be on the order page if they did.

@Amigakit

The link is currently pointing at the wrong product.

Nice box. It would be good to have a conversion kit for modern floppy drives. Like ones in USB cases that have some micro connector.

It would be great if this could be used with AmigaOS 4.1. Why not?

@PixelHi

One simple reason is drivers. It uses a custom serial protocol to transfer data back and forth. I think it needs firmware to support mass storage standards to be compatible with all OS without needing a proprietary driver.

The Greaseweazle should be recognized as COM port on a PC, usually you could have more than one, so if the software is written correctly you could have access to more than one device at the same time.

The protocol on the PC side is open sourced if someone does a port to any AmigaOID it should be possible ...

I just purchased the previous version of this, fully enclosed with floppy drive on E-Bay in the United States. It is a great product and is reading my 25 year old Amiga disks.
