This Tandy 1000 Internal Floppy Drive Adapter allows you to add an extra Drive or replace your dead Floppy Drive in Tandy 1000's that send power over the Floppy cable. All you need is an Amiga / Atari ST style Floppy Power cable (as shown) and a compatible Standard 3.5" Floppy Drive. Most drives made up-to-the mid-'90s should work well, but after that compatibility is very much hit and miss as Shugart support was dropped by many OEM's to reduce drive costs.
Tandy 1000's that have power supplied via the Floppy Cable include the HX, SL/2, TX, TL, TL/2, TL/3, RL, RLX and RSX.
WARNING: Please check your Tandy 1000 cable config BEFORE using my adapters - Some Tandy 1000's (eg TL/3) have both the HX Style "Flipped" pin-outs and Standard Shugart style Pin-outs on the same Floppy Cable. Many 1000's have 12v in the Floppy cable and it will damage your drives and or system if you use these Adapters incorrectly!
If your SL/2, TX, TL, TL/2 or TL/3 Floppy cable has the Ground pins on any of its connectors "flipped", please see the Documentation linked on this page for how to modify the Floppy connector (it's easy).
--> Here's how you can Check <--
If you have a HX, RL, RLX or RSX you dont need to worry about checking your cables.
For this adapter to work, the rear of the replacement floppy drive should have a similar connector arrangement as the pictured drives - the power connector must at least 12mm away from the Floppy ribbon connector and the floppy ribbon connector notch must be on the bottom of the drive (look for the notch in the PCB).
I made these because many folks want to add a 2nd drive or replace a dead Floppy Drive in their Tandy 1000's but due to the non-standard power-over-cable-design were unable to find a compatible replacement drive.
All items are fully assembled as shown.
NOTE: ONLY the "Tandy 1000 Internal Floppy Drive Adapter" is for sale, other items pictured are for demo purposes only. This adapter is not compatible with Gotek Virtual drives.
