 +===== PC Floppy Drive on X68000 =====
 +The floppy drives in the X68000 are just regular PC drives with extra features. In fact, on the PRO they share the same part numbers with their PC counterparts (It's a TEAC drive). ​ If you can live without soft-eject and computer-controlled blinking lights, you can easily connect a normal PC drive to the X68000. ​ Simply follow this connection diagram, and you're done!
