A600 slim hcx in floppy drive housing

This is my Slim hxc mod, fitted into the old floppy drive housing and using the eject button to change disks.

Nice.
How did you manage to enable the Amiga eject with the SDCard eject ?

OH, didn't understand at first, it didn't eject the SDCard but the virtual disquette :oops:

Still, is it hard to construct such a feature ?

Depends on your abilities really. You'll need a hot glue gun, dremel (or similar), a soldering iron and a spare floppy disk drive + cable.

Could you please post basic instructions on how you did this, starting with dismantling a floppy drive? I'm sure it would help many of us.
