My setup :) - dfstudios - 01-30-2016

Hi there,

Here is my SuperCard Pro setup which I am still in the processing of putting together:

   

My setup has the following features:
  • 3 bay case with PSU
  • SuperCard Pro (with 32GB MicroSD card fitted, just in case! Wink )
  • 64GB of storage via internally fitted USB drive (handy for storing SCP images Wink )
  • 5.25" floppy disk drive
  • 3.5" floppy disk drive
  • Memory card reader
  • 5x front USB ports (for USB sticks, etc.)
  • 2x rearĀ USB ports (for connection to PC)
  • Internal USB hub

It will also have an external switch mounted to the rear of the caseĀ that will allow me to be able to switch the SuperCard Pro into its programming mode for firmware updates, but unfortunately the supplier sent out the wrong switch type, so this will need to wait. Sad

Kind regards,

Francis

Where did you get that case?


RE: My setup :) - dfstudios - 01-30-2016

I got it from here: http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/product.aspx?code=DR-B1031BB

The manufacturer of the case is Sumvision.

Kind regards,

Francis

I've more-or-less finished building my SCP box. Smile

   

This is the casing with the power supply and fan removed so that I can do some modifications. I needed to do some drilling and didn't want metal fragments getting in to the power supply.

   

Power supply and fan have been reinstalled. On the left is a panel I've added with a couple of USB connectors that connect to the computer. The panel is only made from clear plastic and I want to replace this at some point with a metal one once I've found something suitable (hence why I wasn't too bothered with the cutting being a bit of a mess). On the right is a switch that allows SCP to switch between its normal and firmware update modes.

   

Inside view of the casing so far.

   

The bottom layer. This has a 3.5" to 5.25" drive bay adapter with 2x USB ports fitted with a memory card reader and additional USB port. The SCP had been velcroed to the rear of the memory card reader. You can also see the internal USB hub velcroed to the base and is fitted with a 64GB USB memory stick.

   

The middle layer. Another 3.5" to 5.25" drive bay adapter with 2x USB ports fitted with a Samsung SFD-321J 3.5" floppy drive. I originally had a Teac FD-235HG fitted, but after reading in these forums about how good the Samsung drives were supposed to be I opted to fit one of these instead (I was not disappointed! Wink ).

   

The top layer. A Teac FD-55GFR 5.25" floppy drive.

   

The fully assembled casing. Smile

Thanks for sharing!

I really am impressed with how good the Samsung drives are! I had previously tried to copy one of my Amiga floppies to ADF and, despite numerous attempts, it would always fail on one track using the Teac drive. I've just retried with the Samsung drive and it managed to get it first time! Cool

Now to try with the other 20-odd disks that failed! Smile

Kind regards,

Francis
