Arduino Amiga Floppy Disk Reader/Writer aka DrawBridge

Open Source and Free! - by Robert Smith

As featured in Issue 1 of the UK Amiga Magazine Amiga Addict

and Youtube Channel RMC - The Cave:

This project is now known as DrawBridge, standing for Disk Reader and Writer (bridge between disk and computer)

What's New? V2.6 - improved disgnostics, better reading, write pre-compensation, ability to create SCP (Supercard Pro files) for backing up non-AmigaDOS disks, fixed issue with writing disks and Kickstart 1.3, and, I spent a few months building support for this into WinUAE as well.

New: Join the Waiting List for purchase of a ready-built solution.

My Aim: To create a simple, cheap and open source way to recover and rewrite data from and to an Amiga DD floppy disk from within Windows 10.

My Solution: An Arduino sketch + a Windows application (which can be ported to other O/S) that actually works!

Why: To preserve data from these disks for the future. Also, a normal PC can't read/write Amiga disks due to the way they are written.

Options: When I started this project literally the only other option was Kyroflux. This project has prompted many such projects!
