ADAM SD DDP Drive available for DIYers

Recommended Posts

For those that don't frequent the Coleco ADAM Facebook page, a new SD Drive solution called the "ADAM SD DDP" has been developed and released by Eric Pearson with inspiration provided via ideas expressed by former Coleco employee Howard Eglowstein and the ground work laid by Sean Myers and his "ADAM Drive Emulator". So after years of hoping for an SD Drive solution, we know have multiple options available:

 

- Virtual Disk Drive by Microfox Technologies

- ADAM Drive Emulator by Sean Myers

- ADAM Drive Emulator Pro built by John Lundy

- ADAM Drive Emulator Lite built by John Lundy

- ADAM SD DDP by Eric Pearson

Resident hardware guru John Lundy made a proof of concept build (pictured below) and followed that up only a couple days later with a professional quality build (pictured below) that is unfortunately not being offered for sale.

For those interested in this DIY project, it's been reported that there are issues when a real Digital Data Drive is installed as drive #2.

 

Will update as more info comes available.
