Either way it doesnt matter as long as its running at 16Mhz, has three timers and has a USB->Serial converter that can reach 2M baud and for writing allows access to the RS232 CTS line.
|Arduino PIN||Floppy Drive PIN||PIN Name||PIN Code|
|4||30||Read Data (1k pullup resistor required)||/RDATA|
|5||12 & 16||Drive Select B & Motor Enable B||/DRVSB & /MOTEB|
|A0||24||Floppy Write Enable (Write Gate)||/WGATE|
|A2||CTS||CTS on RS232 Breakout Board||CTS|
Assuming you have cut the cable and the piece you are using does not have the twist in it, then locate the wire with the red stripe. This is Pin 1, and they continue in sequence, every other wire being a GND. You usually dont need to connect up the GND wires as they are all connected together anyway.
If you are having trouble with the floppy drive cable then the following diagram might help (the red line is the red marking on the cable. Make sure you aren't using the part of the cable with a twist in it):
If you have never used the Arduino or IDE before, there are several good examples showing you how to set it up and get started and several good YouTube tutorials as follows:
Please take the time to understand basic Arduino usage before continuing. I recommend at least getting the Basic/Blink sketch working first.
Once you have programmed the Arduino you can connect up the floppy disk drive as above, and then try out the software on the PC. The first demo program on GitHub is a command line application which will read a disk and save it into an ADF file.
Be careful with the IDE cable connected to the drive. Some manufacturers key the connector upside-down and it won't work if you don't spot this!
You MUST use the 1K pullup resistors. The internal pullups on the Arduino are 20K which is far too high for the data to be recovered from the drive correctly.
