I know it sounds silly but could a real floppy drive be daisy chained to this device to control the stepper motor? That would make this the perfect device in my eyes :D

Build a external floppy and use that as drive B.

What is the TOS version required to write to 902KB and 4.23MB HFE floppy ?
My STFM Tos 1.02 can read from these HFE but cannot write. It say disk error on writing.

I know this is an ancient post but I thought I'd clarify.

I want to install an HxC but I also want the real floppy to still reside in there and make the floppy seek/load noises while the HxC is doing the actual data handling. I guess the stepper motor control lines are still there so in theory it should work?

The HxC also provide some "sounds" but not as authentic as the real drive... :lol:
Can the lines drives 2 floppy drives?
I guess so because you can have 2 floppy drives.

The motor-on line is not implemented on the HxC itself.

If you get another floppy drive and just wire in the power, motor-on, and step lines; it should give you some authentic sounds.
