Hi everyone:

I'm about to install a PCD 50b and a slim floppy drive on my Emax keyboard. Does anyone know if the same configuration will work on an Emulator III?

And if this configuration will work, does anyone know if the EIII can boot from the PCD 50b PCMCIA slot?

Thanks,
DBM

I couldn't get it to work.
Floppy was a complete no go, but I could read and write banks to the card.
It won't boot though.

Good to know, thanks Jay.

I'm currently running my EIII keyboard and rack with bootable internal CF cards so it isn't the worst thing in the world. But I do love the PCD 50b form factor.

Scratch that on the floppy. It does work. You just need one of those twisted floppy cables instead of the straight ones.
Just tried it on an EIII I'm messing around with at the moment. Works like a champ with the same mods to the adapter board as for Emax.
Can't get that card drive to boot it though. Don't think it's possible.
