Solid State Logic console computer 4k

Post by clip6 » Fri Oct 07, 2016 2:48 am

Hello. First post.

Teac FD-235HF 1.44MB

Would like to make this work for the SSL Solid State Logic 4k console computer.

I'm not a tech so I don't know what info Jeff needs.

Some info from another forum:

This subject was debated a few of times in this forum. The bottom line is that the issue with the floppy is that this is the old SCSI-I (SASI) format. If that wasn't the only problem, the SASI interface was customized by SSL/Computer Automation to extend the SCSI interface. It won't be easy to replace it, but you can try it.


Remember that the protocol used is an old SASI, then renamed to SCSI-I. This would be ok if you get an SASI interface, but the problem is that from what we've been able to dig up is that this is a customized SASI interface with some protocol extensions. This had to be done in order to support the Bernoulli drives that worked a little bit differently.  Because of this even a SCSI-I floppy might not work.
