Chinon floppy disk drive

Post by GianDO » Mon Nov 02, 2020 12:08 am

Hi,
I'd like to know if the Chinon FZ-357 and the Chinon FZ-357A are the same drive and if both can be used as HD floppy disk drive on Amiga.
Thanks

The 357 is a double density Amiga/PC drive but it could support HD function on PC, while the 357A is the Amiga version of the HD drive and won't work on a PC.
