slave drives

Post by coolman66 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 9:23 pm

I have recently acquired an original ORIC MICRO-DRIVE this also has a 5 1/4 disk drive as a slave.My question is can i also add on a 3 1/2 inch drive as drive "c" or drive 3 this is becourse i have a mix of software on 3 inch disks 5 1/4 inch disks and 3 1/2 inch disks These all came with a modem joystick interfaces (2) an double ROMED ATMOS . I also have managed to get my own ORIC1 working again this i intend using with a cassette recorder as this be pure nostalgia to hear that loading sound from the many tapes i have.Any help would be appreciated.

In theory the Microdisc controller board accepts up to 4 disk drives in 3", 3.5", 5.25" (and I read somewhere 8" as well) formats.

So in theory yes that could be done.
