I want to use the HxC mostly as an hard disk on my STe, for data storage. I want to keep the original drive in.
So, I bought the needed 14 pin DIN connector. I made an adapter to plug the HxC to this using this as reference :http://pinouts.ru/Storage/AtariFloppyPort_pinout.shtml
But it doesn't work. There seem to be some kind of conflict somewhere...
* Which setup should I use for the HxC in this case ? Drive B, no cable twist ?
* Is this pinout correct ? Anything else I should know ?
* Doing some tests with my multimeter, pin 7 on the DIN connector isn't grounded like said on the pinout. Looking at the way it maps to the floppy connector, it looks obvious that it should be DS2. Butthat isn't available on the ST, right ? So where does PIN7 goes on the motherboard ? Just not connected ? Is it used to detect the external floppy presence ?
* Are there any other steps than just plugging the drive ? Should I install it like a hard disk, adding an icon in GEM ?
