-The external FDD connecter is labelled "EXTERNAL FDD" on the back of the X68000. This is a very unusual port known as the "miniature delta ribbon (MDR) 40 position female connector". In order to connect an external device to this port an MDR 40 position male connector is necessary. The FDX68 author made a cable for converting this port to a standard 34-pin ribbon cable connector. One should be able to purchase the MDR 40 position male connector at many online retail stores. You will also need to purchase matching enclosure shell for the connector.+The external FDD connecter is labelled "EXTERNAL FDD" on the back of the X68000.
