    Steve,

    You must have just posted this… been waiting with bated breath for you to get this back in stock!

    Thanks, Bill T.

    Great!
    Just ordered yesterday one for my Mc Plus 🙂

    Just ordered one, but the cases were all out of stock. I’m going to need one of those. 😀

    I love my FloppyEmu. About the only thing that could make it better is if it had a daisy chain pass-through and/or if it could emulate two floppies at a time. The later would make certain applications which access two drives much more convenient. Some productivity software that wants the program disk in drive one and the data disk in drive two and also for example adventure type games which want the program or game data disk in drive one and the character disk in drive two…

    Oh… I should also mention how convenient the new A/B switch is in conjunction with the FloppyEmu. I’ve got the FloppyEmu and a Disk ][ selectable as drive 1 and a second Disk ][ on drive 2 right now. That works great. I’ve been thinking about buying a second FloppyEmu and A/B switch for D2.

    I agree regarding two floppy emulation. This product is amazing, but it would be incredible if there were some way to emulate two floppies at once. Obviously, this would be an issue for older machines that need two physical connections. Also, you should add in that your device works with the Apple III. I have successfully been using it with the correct cabling (the hardest part) as an internal drive (cabled externally). Another idea for now, offer a discount on purchasing two Floppy EMU’s at the same time for “dual floppy” support, as it were. I am painfully being reminded how bad a single floppy was back in the day which most of us quickly remedied with the purchase of a second, albeit expensive (back then), disk drive and will most likely be purchasing a second one. Another comment, really mixing multiple subjects here, but I have found that when there are hundreds of images in a directory, it takes minutes for the device to show them. Obviously, the solution for now is do not put so many in one folder, but with thousands of images available now for download at once, makes it a lot harder NOT to do that ! Thanks!

    I’ll place my order when it supports dual floppy emulation!

    More acrylic cases are in stock now.

    The case is definitely worth getting.
