The install process of the Shop Floor Automations Floppy Drive Emulator:
The floppy drive emulator from SFA is easily installed by simply plugging it into the existing floppy power cable (4-pin Mini Molex) and the ribbon cable (34-pin IDE) on the back of the existing drive. No other special cables or connectors are required, and the equipment runs as normal.

Our Floppy Drive Emulator, available in two models, acts as a Floppy USB Emulator, is easy install, requires no system configuration or debugging, & replaces the need for floppy disks, which are very difficult to obtain. The drive emulates your existing floppy drive & acts as if the floppy drive was never removed. Works with almost any existing 720k/1.44MB capacity DOS format floppy drive. 28 or 32 pin ribbon cables systems are supported & will connect to your existing power cable.
Works in PCs & in CNC machinery such as Haas, Mazak, Fadal, Mitsubishi, Omniturn, Centroid, Robots, Flame Cutters, & Greco boxes, with new models being added to our compatibility list monthly!
