  1. Poor Man’s TPDD I previously started this as a post on the "TRS-80 Model 100/102/200, NEC 8201A/8300, Kyocera KC-85" Facebook page. I've decided to upload the instructions as single PDF file on this forum as it is a better platform to share this information and files. Note: There is at least one other example of this on the net. However, I found it after I made my prototype. Being retired and on a strict hobby budget, I decided that it would be great to have Portable Disk Drive to go with my TRS-80 Model 100. Unfortunately, most solutions were way over my current budget of zero dollars ($0.00). I rummaged through my inventory of items on hand and created a modern drive using a $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W (a gift) , a very old USB Serial Cable (thrift store), a “lipstick” style phone USB/recharge battery (another gift) , and a few other small items. Since, I already owned everything; I figured that a “headless” Pi should work. I set up the Pi using a fresh Raspberry Pi OS (no desktop). After enabling SSH, I created a share (TPDD) and passed over mComm (python version) from Kurt McCullum’s Club 100 Member Upload Library. I was able to easily get it running on the on the Pi using a TPDD shared folder. I added a switch to shut down the Pi when I didn’t need it. Next, I plugged in the USB Serial Cable and battery. It worked! mComm automatically starts when the Pi is turned on. I pass the M100 files to my Pi through the shared directory on my PC. The Pi’s microSD card will hold almost all the Model 100 files in the known universe. This works better than I could have imagined and meets my current budget of nearly 0(zero) dollars. I am compiling I've compiled the steps needed to set this up and will post them if there is an interest? If you don’t have the materials, this should set you back around $50 or less. (Note: I am not selling this item. I hope others may enjoy it as much as I have! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Attachments: The build guide: PoorMansTPDD.pdf Also: A ready to use collection of Club100 files (public domain files in the correct format for "mComm") for folks to test.
