Arduino Amiga Floppy Disk Reader/Writer aka DrawBridge

Open Source and Free! - by Robert Smith

Using WinUAE

I spent months figuring out enough of how WinUAE works to come up with a universal interface to add physical floppy disk support, now called FloppyBridge.

It's not quite as fast as a native machine, that's just a side effect of emulation vs physical reality especially without causing WinUAE to freeze while disk access happens. This won't work with every disk, but the aim is for it to work with most.

You need to find your WinUAE folder, find (or create) the Plugins folder, and copy the DLL files there.
