I personally think that a drop in replacement for the DD Drive would have been the way to go with built in flash memory that connects to any PC USB port.
Drag and drop all disk and ddp images.
And when I say drop in replacement that it would use the internal connectors of the DD drive as well.
I know I would pay $200 for that device if the bugs were worked out and the damn screens back light stayed on.
Maybe even a little more.
It beats Ebay gouging for limited original disk drives.
The problem with using the ADAMNET internal Digital Data Drive connectors is that you would be limited to 256K Digital Data Pack images only. If one were to change the operating system inside the ADAM then one could patch the internal DDP ADAMNET connectors to use 1.44MB or up to 32GB size images.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I always thought the ADAM Memory Console operating system using ADAMNET assigned 256K of storage to the Digital Data Drives. If the Digital Data Drives had the capability to communicate with ADAMNET and assign 320K or 1.44MB then the big question is why did Coleco not make the Digital Data Drives with the same ADAMNET cord that is used on the Coleco Disk Drives?
