LS-120, LS-240 and Giggledisk
« on: April 12, 2017, 04:57:09 PM »
Has anybody used an LS-120 to read/write 720k and 1440k OFS/FFS or other Amiga formatted floppy targeted file systems before?

Has anybody tried to use an LS-240 SCSI or IDE drive on an Amiga before?

Finally has anybody used the absolutely amazing giggledisk utility with either of these drives on the Amiga before?

Yes, I still have an IDE LS-120 in my towered A1200. With an LS-120 disk it ran about half the speed of a Zip 100 drive on the same 4 way IDE controller, but it did give me access to 1.4Mb disks. I haven't used it for years, but it's still there. I do remember having to telephone Eyetech in the UK to figure out which device to put onto which port, as a LS-120/Zip 100/ IDE hard drive and a CD-Rom didn't want to play together.
