Do you know the picture I'm talking about. I was just looking at it a minute ago I think it s a AMSTRAD FD-1. I tought it was a spectrum disk drive. Maybe I'll just get a spectrum monitor😃😃😃😃😃
The FD-1 did exist (see here) but the interface that would have fitted to the +2A, called the SI-1 was never produced (see this page). So there was no official way to connect the FD-1 disk drive to a +2A.
