Product Description

Archive your Commodore floppies (and CMD HD partitions) to your contemporary PC, without the hassles of external parallel ports, IRQ settings, special adapters, bulky cables, or the alphabet soup of disk drive cable adapters.  ZoomFloppy replaces all X*-1541 cables with a simple USB-based hardware device guaranteed to work with today's machines using today's multitasking operating systems.  Simply plug into any free USB port, connect your CBM drive via a serial cable, and transfer data to or from your software collection. 

Product Features

  • Attach any CBM serial device to your PC, including printers
  • Works with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
  • Open Source solution, no vendor lock-in
  • Active development community
  • Minimal footprint, no external power supply needed
  • Parallel access hardware support

NOTE: ZoomFloppy requires an IEC cable (sold separately), an IEEE cable if using the IEEE version and targeting IEEE drives (sold separately), and a USB to mini-USB cable (available at many computer stores). 

More information is available at: http://www.go4retro.com/products/zoomfloppy/.

Stocking Note: The non-IEEE and the IEEE version differ only in the presence or absence of the IEEE connector.  That said, they are stocked as two separate items and we are sometimes out of one or the other. If the IEEE version is out of stock, we can often solder connectors to the non-IEEE version, but the reverse is not true.  Thus, if the non-IEEE version is showing as out of stock, please consider the IEEE version or check back, as we try to keep both in stock at all times

  3. Very good 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2017

    It works correctly, at first use.
    It is just a little strange its form factor (to find a box that fits) and the lack of a power switch. It is not comfortable to switch it on/off connecting and removing the Usb cable: a little dangerous on a long time.
    Anyway, a very, very good product.

  5. Best card ever!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2017

    Let me tell you this...if you own a commodore 64 and want to use real disk drive...YOU MUST OWN THIS! IT HAVE TO BE PART OF THE PACKAGE OF OWNING A COMMODORE 64 AND DISK DRIVE!!!!!!


    I am intending to buy another next month. Even though I already have one and it is working and still brand new....I MUST own another one! It is the best ever, ever, ever, ever, ever and the price is super fair.

    Make sure to buy the zoom case too! I am intending to buy two zoom case as I am also intending to buy another zoomfloppy!


  6. ZoomFloppy works well 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2017

    The ZFloppy contains a lot of files which were easy to install on W10. I still can't get it to work, though. The LED won't light up and I can't run D64Copy. However, the USB cable and the IEC cable were easy to hook up. I might need more files for it to work on W10.


  7. zoom floppy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    A fantastic product from install to being used in less than 10 mins and it does exactly what it's designed to do money well spent If you need a device to transfer between pc and commodore floppy drive and back again does it with ease. I live in the UK and received it with out any problems


  8. Awesome for transferring those old floppies 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    Worked great for transferring my old Commodore 64 floppies.

    Quality ie excellent, although I wish a case was available as an option to protect it.


  9. Does the job! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd May 2017

    I had a small collection of protected and unprotected disks and I wanted to back them up as painlessly as possible and the ZoomFloppy was simply the best solution. The only part of the process that failed were the disks themselves (some were bad). If you have a C= 1571 drive, backing up is even better due to the support for nibble copy.


  10. Works great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2017

    Was able to make images of disks easily with d64copy on Ubuntu with nearly zero effort.
