Catweasel ZII S-Class for any Zorro AMIGA
The Zorro-Catweasel is a combination of two individual Computers-products. You have a Buddha Flash IDE controller and a Catweasel MK2 on the same card. The Buddha has even got one more IDE port, so you can connect up to six IDE or Atapi devices. You get the full Buddha software package as well as the Catweasel software package - for an incredibly low bundle price!
Catweasel is a universal floppy disk controller that uses unmodified PC diskdrives. The Catweasel can handle nearly any disk format, you just have to find a drive for them. Normally, these drives are just 3.5 inch and 5.25 inch drives. PC floppy drives used to be known as being able to work with PC formatted disks only, but now you can access any of the disk formats listed further below. We're updating the software regularly since 1996. Here's the list of the supported formats.
all PC-formats (180K up to 1440K)
Amiga DD and HD (also 5,25" formats)
Atari 9, 10 and 11 sektor disks
Macintosh 720K, 800K, 1440K (DD, GCR, HD)
Commodore 1541, 1571, 1581 (C64, C128 and 3,5" C-64 disks)
XTRA High density with 2380KByte per disk
Nintendo backup station 1600KB format
Atari 800XL (all MFM formats, FM under developement)
Apple IIe disks (Apple DOS 3.3 and up)
further 8-bit formats planned
Sophisticated error correction algorithms enable you to read otherwise unreadable disks. In other words, you have an excellent chance to read your formally unreadable floppy disks.
You can connect up to two drives to the Catweasel, and the two drives can be any combination of 3.5" and 5.25".
