I made this mod in the spring of 1999.

I did get external floppydrive for Amstrad PC. Becouse I did not have Amstrad PC I made cdplayer from floppydrive case and slow CD-rom drive. Powersupply is from Liteon Jaz drive.

Altoygh I'm not the author of this mod, I can recommend a way to get +12 and +5 volts aut of a 12Volts transformer:
Use the 7805 voltage limiter (heatsinked, or it'll go up in flames :)) ) and the 7812 (also heatsinked). The datasheets can be found by searching them on google.

I have one fully equipped Amstrad PC, but I don't have an external floppy drive. And a second Amstrad PC unit is broken, I'm keeping it as a "sparepart" machine. :)
Anyway, nice mod!
