"But yep, agreed. I certainly need *something* that can archive / restore
classic formats to/from modern(-ish!) media. Shift register + counter +
high speed RAM. Could even do it with an FPGA if you wanted. Buffering an
entire track with 8x oversampling is going to be hellishly memory intensive
I'd really rather see it done with a real FDC chip. While there might be
some loss of flexibility in dealing with a few formats, I didn't mean to
imply that I was ONLY interested in reading. With the right software, I
could open an "explorer" window on an XP machine and "drag-and-drop" files
.... to an 8" CP/M diskette. Or write a "system track".
[As long as this is only a wish-list, why not stretch].
