Apple //c external floppy port
« on: February 28, 2011, 11:01:33 AM »
So I was reading the pinouts of the apple //c and discovered that the external drive port sends stepper motor signals and has a selector for up to 2 drives. This got me thinking about making a sort of retro bot using the apple //c as the controller. What I need to know is what the card number is for the external drive port. Also how do I send commands to said drives? It seems like it should be pretty straight forward
