Rapport Drive 2 floppy cable pinout

Postby FortMax » Mon Aug 17, 2020 5:35 pm

I need to make a new ribbon cable for my Rapport driv2, and stupidly took the old one apart. I need to know how lines 9-16 go in that 10-pin connector for the sidecar.

Suggest you take pics before disassembling anything. I buy old motorcycles and take pics of every step before part or wiring removal.

My Racore Drive 2 isn't working and I suspect I damaged the floppy cable. Can you confirm that the cable in your photo can be used to successfully connect Drive 1 to the disk drive adaptor without involving the Drive 2 unit? I'm asking because that's what I'm basing my conclusion about a faulty cable on (when I try that hook-up I get a disk drive error message, but the computer and drive work fine when I use the original drive cable).
