FDS 3206 Mod Chip v2, working on fdsstick now

Just want to let you guy know, if you want to mod your 3206 drive for use on fdsstick. Then you *MUST* use 3206 Mod Chip v2.
Also, you *MUST* use latest software from fdsstick site.
At least use this version : http://3dscapture.com/fdsstick/FDSStick_20160214.exe

If you use V1 chip on fdsstick, then you can not read or write. Also, when you read disk, it will format your disk. I’m sorry about that. But V1 chip had been released before fdsstick. I don’t know it is not compatible with fdsstick.

3206 modchip with fdsstick

I confirm 3206 modchip is not compatible with fdsstick read/write.
When it is develop, fdsstick haven’t appear. So, I can’t know that.
It is working good except fdsstick. Like Copy Master 1.1, Disk Hacker else.
Also, it can work with any fds game with save function like Zelda.

I’m finding a way to make it compatible with fdsstick. But need some times.
I will check what different with Copy Master and fdsstick read/write.
Hope will fix soon. Sorry.

fdsstick read error fix (maybe?)

News from loopy :
On read errors – I’ve found that a series resistor (10k or so) on the READ DATA pin (“pin 9” in my pinout diagrams) helps.

I built a GUI, it’s not quite finished but you can try it out. http://3dscapture.com/fdsstick/FDSStick.exe
I made a small change to the firmware to make using the button easier. Instead of slot numbers, you push the game number (1, 2, 3, etc..). After the game loads, the button changes disk sides (1=A, 2=B, …)

FDS 3206 Mod

If you use Modchip, it is easier to install.
You need to mod both Power Board and Drive Board.

If not, you can check here :

Drive PCB mod :
1) Modchip pins don’t touch anything from PCB.
2) Drive PCB need to cut two wires and solder 8 wires to the Modchip.

Power Board v05 Mod :
Cut two wires and solder two wires.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
