Building Custom Floppy Drive Power Cables - Parts Not Included
I'm looking to control eight drives in total, so I built two identical '1 to 4' custom floppy drive power cables. Floppy drives use a 4-pin Berg connector for power, which includes +5V, two ground wires, and +12V (pins 1-4, respectively). For just driving the read head stepper motor, the drives only need +5V and ground. +12V isn't used, which cuts the number of wires needed in half.
