Re: Who knows this floppy controller

Hello mwlay,

These FD controllers were popular especially in Germany.
They can be used with Disk II (2 x 20 pin connectors) or Shugart floppy drives (large 34 pin connector).
You can find some informations on the SpeedyG page, see Disk Controllers for the APPLE Family paragraph.

I have two controllers like this one.

Hello mwlay,
your correct... it´s not an FDC4.
Maybe you have rhe chance to find the controller in the Apple Documentation Center....
(at least by picture )
here is the link to the floppycontrollers:

Hello speedyG,

no success on this website. The floppy controller is not in the list.
The search goes on.
Thank you.
