If you have any bookmarks or links please update them as this redirect will most likely stop in August. I hope by that time google updates its links too.

Super Magic Drive Floppy Drive in a NES

My friend spoonman has a Super Magic Drive that he picked up on ebay. The Super Magic Drive is a game copier that will dump ROMs to a floppy drive or a PC connected via a parallel port. The one he got did not include the floppy drive so he asked me to make an adapter to connect a standard PC floppy to the Super Magic Drive. I put it in a NES case and used a blue LED to make it awesome.

I used the following information he had gotten from a forum years ago. I cannot credit the source:

Any PC 3.5 inch FDD
5V 1A power supply

Making the cable
FFE D-sub 25 pin ------------FDD 34pin

1, 18-25-----------------------ALL ODD pin (GND)
2-------------------------------8 (Index)
7-9----------------------------No Connection
11-----------------------------16(MOTOR ON 1)
