how to stream data to serial as it's read by the head?
To the pin 30(RDATA) on floppy cable?
Quotehow to stream data to serial as it's read by the head?You don't.Data is encoded on a floppy with a system called Manchester encoding, you can't just send that to the serial port it is not of the right format and it is not the right speed.Normally floppy discs had a whole lot of electronics in them. Are you trying to emulate that electronics like the old Apple 2 disc drives?
Didn´t know we could build one of this. Got some code from http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Oscilloscope-poor-mans-Oscilloscope/ and incorporated into the Dweller´s code. Serial is running on 115200 baud. The result with the Serial.write((val >> & 0xff) commented is as in the attachment. If I remove comment from that it returns 0 and 1. For what I need this is a good start, but I want to go further: not having random track readings(related to arduino and something I got into along several restarts of the Processing program from instructables).What is this data?
I'm using a 3,5" floppy so there's no hole. How to calculate revolutions? And sync with the head read.
