Work in progress: Floppy drive and HDDRIVER modules

Available now, in the latest drivers download on the USB page, are an updated storage driver that supports floppy drives, while all the other drivers can be run as HDDRIVER modules (https://www.hddriver.net/en/modules.html).


Some floppy drives may not work well, or work well on a computer but not another. This is due to the polling for media change. I will try a new method of detection that won't require polling.


The HDDRIVER keyboard module makes the keyboard available before HDDRIVER loads, to select a boot letter for example. More later on the storage module.

Thank you for your efforts! Can I read on a USB Floppy Drive 1.44 Mo floppies without the HD mod f.e. on a Atari Mega ST ? (under HDDriver 11 and NetUSBee) Is there a list somewhere on working USB Floppy drives?

Thanks for your interest! Yes, you can read 1.44 MB floppies under MegaST without any mod. There are no list of working USB floppy drives. I suggest you buy one that is claimed to work under older versions of Windows, and/or Mac.
