That looks cool! I imagine interference would be more of an issue without the shielding though?

Nice. I still need to measure out how to fit it into a TT030 or Mega STe. Seems it'd be the perfect thing inside the Hard drive mount. You could connect network via wifi, SCSI and Floppy drive to it fairly easily in there, and it's the only set up I can think of where you wouldn't have things laying around outside.

Here you can see an old video that I made for Uwe about a bug in his HDDRIver and you can see my MegaSTE with CosmosEX into it. (At the beginning of the video)

Nice! My thought was to keep the floppy drive in there (For those times when I need my old stuff) and to put the CosmosEX into the hard drive bay. The power switch needs to be moved though for that to happen, so one of these days when I get some time, I'll work on that and see what I can pull off.

Ok but.... The CosmosEX can emulate the Diskdrive using .ST images. convert all your disk to .ST and thas all. :cheers:

Yes, but if you have documents saved to floppy, you wouldn't be able to read them, right? So i was going to set the main floppy to B, the CosmosEX to A, and then I believe you can pass through Wifi for network and use it as a virtual hard disk. Best of all worlds.

Ahhh, so here is an interesting question for Jookie. I have the first version of the CosmosEx, using Pi version Model B. With this latest revision it is using Model B+ and adding on two more USB ports, which would be handy. Could I take out the boards in my original case, print this cool case out, buy a B+ and plug it in, should it work the same as your latest revisions? Thanks.
