Hi,

I'm looking for a floppy controller (without drive). Location inside Europe would be an asset, as I'm located in Germany and don't want to pay more shipping costs than floppy controller price.

Regards

Thank you, speedyG!

I know both of them, having them on my watchlist. But as stated in the text, no guarantee, that the card is really working (sold as "broken"). And I don't want to pay two broken floppy drives as well (already got a working one).

Regards

Well at the other hand - it may be assumed that the cards are working... how could he otherwise test the drives ?
I have allready bought some items from that seller and the items turned out to be good....#
as far as he explained to me - he just want´s to avoid "never ending discussions" with user´s
"that don´t knopw what they are doing"....
just my five cents

If you want to be on the safe side,
ask him by "question to seller" and besides ask for the promnumbers of [b]P5 and P6[/b]...
there are 2 versions out there :
one for 13 sector disks ( ROM 0009 and ROM 0010 )
and one version for 16 sector disks ( this is the set you are looking for )....
( ROM 0027 and ROM 0028 )
