Does anyone know the type of drive that will hook up to the Cromemco WDI Winchester controller. The board seems to work fine as far as DMA tests etc, but the next project would be to hook up a drive.

Thanks!

Good Luck!

If it's really a WDI (as opposed to a WDI-II), AFAIK the
only drives that it will control are 7700 series IMI drives
(the 8" drives in a Z2-H or HDD11/22). The WDI-II will
control the 5" IMI drives, but they're pretty scarce as well.
For MFM drives, Cromemco had an STDC controller.
