This is a Apple GCR Device only and can not read any other formats even with additional software or hardware.
 
 
 
Technical Specifications:
 
It uses a Shugart Mechanism, and the Analog card is an Apple card. It can be adapted to a DB-19 but still falls under all the same usage restrictions as any other DB-19 drive that is NOT the 'Platinum' drive, and unless the conversion cable is equipped with an additional DB-19 connector the drive can only be used as the last device on a system as nothing else can attach to it. There are also many Third Party drives based on this same or similar design, some are out right duplications and others are completely different such as the Rana Elite Series.
 
 
 
Common problems occurred using this device:
 
Heads need cleaned
 
Speed Adjustment gets slow/faster.
 
Plugged into controller card backwards or improperly aligned pins when plugged in.
