I had this interesting interface 10 years ago here for repair.
It was from somebody in France, (Bordeaux ?) but I don't remember the name.
I made a copy of the PCB, it was working so far and I can read the discs, but it doesn't write correctly.

The schematic on XavSnap was drawn by me.
Now I have the name: Didier Pous from Bordeaux. Anybody know him?

Email address for Didier? I have. But he is not with electronics.
If somebody could help me to get the IF running. I would send my PCBs for further testing. Also have the designs in Eagle here.

hello kai , hello rwap ...

mageco's floppy disk interface is still working very well .. thanks kai for repairing this interface ..

I can save and load programs and the interface works with zxpand or zxpand + (compatible).

to launch the menu, you have to type RAND USR 9123 ...

logically you can record 120 KB of program on a floppy disk ...

excuse me for my English ...

bye
