Pi1541 Commodore floppy drive emulator – Now RasPi2 compatible!
I picked up the Pi1541 Pi HAT that emulates Commodore floppy drives and can be used on all Commodore 8 bit computers. Until recently it needed a raspberry pi model 3 to function correctly but now a talented developer has managed to fork the software to work on older Pis.
I take you through what you need to do to get it working on a Raspberry pi model 2 B+ (as many people may have these in a drawer) and save yourself having to buy a newer Pi to get this working!
