Announcement   Announcement : Aros and iMica’s can now read/write Amiga floppy disks with PCI Catweasel MK4.
   posted by clusteruk on 12-Apr-2010 14:23:21 (4031 reads)
After some time tracking down a suitable developer with the skills needed to carry out this work I finally contacted Ian Gledhill in the New Year and the project for Aros based iMica’s to read and write Amiga floppy disk drives was started.

Whilst there was a bounty for this work, the hardware was not being supplied and so it never got claimed. So we supplied an iMica Atom with PCI Catweasel MK4 we brought from AmigaKit and a compatible floppy drive in February and this project is now in final testing stage.

Read more....


This project source code will reside in the Aros source library for all to use and will further support the growing realisation from most Amiga users that Aros is a very viable next generation Amiga platform freely available and running on a large amount of commodity hardware.

I would like to thanks Ian Gledhill for his professional manner and skill in this project and if you would like to beta test this and own a Catweasel MK4 PCI card then please PM me or email ian at ian.gledhill (at) btinternet.com or email me at clusteruk@hotmail.com

If you have a Catweasel and this has excited you, please take the time to send a donation to Ian for all his hard work at his paypal account ian.gledhill (at) btinternet.com

Finally, there are still some tweaks to finish this but in the end you will be able to run some Amiga 68k programs and games through Janus-UAE as well as accessing the disks from Aros and Janus-UAE. I will have this on show at the Amiga show in Bletchley in June for you all to play with.

All the best

Steve Jones

So it is up to the user to decide whether to have Amiga disk reading capabilities for their computer or not? So it is the individual who decides which feature they want? I LOVE IT!

@clusteruk

This is good news, but I think the Amiga X1000 event details should be given priority over the coming weeks and not be overcome by other news and eventually pushed off the main page.

No disrespect, but alot of people that may have missed the X1000 news and returning to the site, expecting it to be easily accessible from the front page page could get unecesserly annoyed.

Thanks for your understanding.

I'd like to see a lower cost device developed that can read/write Amiga floppy disks, 150 euros for a catweasel is too expensive..

Great stuff - thanks for yet more good work Steve, and to Ian of course.

@asymetrix

You may be polite but your comment is disrespectful I think. X1000 is just one of many things happening and some of us find this stuff just as important.

Chris

Yes, I can't take all the credit - the AROS version is basically a port of my (rather modified but based on NutsAboutAmiga's) OS4 version. I've made some improvements though so I really ought to make the OS4 version public too. Or maybe sync it with NutsAboutAmiga's version. :)

@ Spirantho

Hello Ian, now I know your handle is handy

Synching versions sounds like a good idea.

OMG, if you really think this, you should ask AW.net administrators for a "fixed" link on the homepage, but you absolutely can't ask people not to post other news just to artificially leave it on the frontpage for a longer time!!!
