A bit OT.
I tried the fdadap card successfully reading and writing SD and DD disks, together with a standard ISA controller.
Had to try a bit, since not every disk controller manages SD writes.
So the FDADAP should be ok, and the problems lie on the Supercard side.
I contacted the Supercard guy, in order to know if there's a Linux support. I've no windows machines, only some specialized DOS one.

I'd tried the SuperCard Pro / FDADAP combo last March with no success.
I hope to return to the task. Maybe it was a problem with my drive(s).
