This offer is for a

Dual Floppydrive set

for any retrocomputer
with Shugart compatible disk interface


Such as:
ZX Spectrum with PlusD / PlusDlite / Disciple / Betadisk
Sinclair QL with Gold Card, Trump Card, etc.
Other machines like BBC etc.

Contains two floppydrives
These have been configured for Shugart pinout.
Will function as PC HD floppydrives on interfaces that support this.
Will function perfectly as DD (Double Density) drives when DD floppies are used.

Comes with fixed floppydrive cable and external power supply

The power supply is of EU / UK or US type: version corresponding to your country will be shipped.


Manually crafted!


Pinout according to the Shugart standard:

– Pin 10: Drive select 0
– Pin 12: Drive select 1
– Pin 14: Drive select 2
– Pin 16: Motor on


 It is not advised to use HD floppies as DD floppies 

as they're made of different magnetic materials.

So use real DD floppies.



The enclosure is not intented to be opened or changed.
