Default Re: Using 5.25-inch BBC Micro Floppy Drive with a PC

Hmm, your answer makes me think I am mis-remembering things.
From memory I recall the cable coming out of the drive looking like the standard PC FDD connector...
I will check when I get back tonight!

EDIT:
A quick search online brings up an image of the various ports on the BBC Micro (attached). This shows the floppy connector as a 17-pin cable that looks practically identical to the PC connector.

Of course, whether it can just be plugged in is a completely different question....
