Quote from: undefinedSecond, that's a pretty neat find! I have been looking at QD-drives for MSX just for the heck of it but they have been a bit too expensive to pick up without a good enough reason, besides the disks are also not so common.
Quote from: undefinedThe battery/motor sense pin is probably part of the power board of the FDS disk drive unit (HVC-022) which provides the power to the disk drive, and allows the software to know if the motor is on or not via this pin to the RAM Adapter. In the Roland the disk drive probably receives power directly from the main unit, but the Famicom's AC-adapter is most likely not beefy enough so Nintendo built a separate power board in the HVC-022 unit.If you were to use the Roland drive with an FDS RAM Adapter you would also most likely need the power board to power it.
