Looking for Aerco FD-ZX documentation

Post by 8008guy » Mon May 14, 2018 11:58 pm

Hi all!

Thank you for allowing me to join your forum. I've lurked here for a while.

Back in the 80's I built a ZX81 from a kit. After some time using the built in keyboard I bought a surplus mechanical keyboard and rewired it for use with my ZX81. I used clear epoxy to glue on the keycap legends that I cut out of an advertisement. I also bought a floppy drive interface from Aerco.

Sadly after I got into IBM compatible PC's I gave my ZX81 system to the good will. (I will always regret that.) I also gave my home built 8008 away at the same time...

I am now trying to reconstruct my ZX81. I did find a FD-ZX floppy controller! Now I am looking for documentation. Can anyone help me out?

Cheers,

len

Hello len

Welcome :D

There is a little bit of info in a link from this Timex page... (scroll down to other disk interfaces).
