¡Hi baz67!

Perhaps you like this: ftp://ftp.cpcszene.de/pub/Computer/Allg ... FD305S.pdf see pages 16 and 21.

I'm using two drives TEAC FD-235HF A529. Great drives, with lots of jumpers. You must use 720K disks, 1.44M disks don't work unless you close the window with adhesive tape.

Best regards.
Oric user since 1984.

Brilliant,
You've all been very helpful, Silicebit.
Appreciate all the trouble, tips, tech manuals sent... now to tinker/try some tin solder!
Cheers, fellas.
