    Default Commodore 4040 floppy drive cable

    I'm looking at possibly getting a PET and 4040 floppy drive, but the cable for the 4040 is missing. I assume they're pretty hard to come by but is it possible to make one? I have 0 experience with the PET so I don't even know what the cable is supposed to look like. It also has a 2022 printer and that cable is missing too.

    Ok, apparently I just bought a PET so I'm going to need to make or find the cable for the 4040 disk drive

    Jim Brain has got you covered.


    You need one of each.

    Adapt the pet to the cheaper cable.

    And the cable to the drive.


    Later,

    Yep I bought some of the same adapters from Jim a year or two back, I had to build them myself. It is definitely what you need, and ieee488 cable will work after that.
