I have been an Apple ][ lover for over 20 years. I still remeber those great games on Apple ][. Unfortunately, I was very busy working on degree and my full time job until 3 years ago. I bought several old Apple ][s from EBAY, hoping that I could get those old-time memory back. Soon I found that this was not the case since the floppy drive and diskettes were too old to work. So I started thinking of alternatives, floppy is really not very reliable and, hey, we are in giga speed CPU era, there are lots of advancements in microelectronics after Apple ][ came out in late 1970. So I was thinking of using solid state storage to replace floppy. Like other Apple ][ fans, CFFA was discovered on the net. Although it is a great idea and very decent product, but that was not what I wanted. I want a real Disk ][ clone which can run those many disk images (.dsk, .nib) that you can find from the net. Being an electronic designers, I decided to build a solid-state drive/disk controller card myself!!

  1. Hey man,

    Unless this is some kind of photoshop work, it is amazing. I have absolutely no idea of electronic design of any kind, but what you ve made is amazing!

    DO you think you could make something like that to replace old floppies in x86 laptops? I know its not apples, but still could be a great help cause i hate to dispose my old laptop just because it has no memory card reader…

    keep up!!
