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

  1. Nibbled my old C64 disks with ZoomFloppy and unmodified 1571! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2018

    What can I say? There's nothing else like ZoomFloppy. It makes the impossible possible 30 years later. Thanks for helping me transfer all my old floppies to disk images!

    Granted, getting nibtools working on OSX Sierra in 2018 was no small chore, but that's no fault of ZoomFloppy. And I did finally get it all working!


  2. Fantastic Device 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2018

    Works great and my 1571 makes copies super fast, awesome tool. I only wish I bought it sooner


  3. So Good I Bought Another! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    I bought a ZoomFloppy a few months ago and it works so good and was easy to set up I bought another one to have one on each of my computers.


  4. Worthy addition for the retro computer geek 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2018

    This is a great hardware addition for any commodore user. If you still have a large software library on floppy disk, archiving to .d64 images becomes a breeze. The only downside is that it may get little usage once all your software is archived and you have moved on to an sd2iec reader. Otherwise, it's well-made and serves it's purpose well.


  5. Fantastic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2018

    Fantastic hardware that allow you to copi to and from Commodore device, PET model included.
    Documentation is well written... little bit of confusion about OpenCBM (program you require to config the ZoomFloppy)


  6. What a Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2018

    Although it took me a couple days to get it up and running this ZoomFloppy has worked flawlessly and I was able to archive all of my C-64 disks to my PC.


  7. zoomfloppy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2018

    This product is amazing. I have been able to backup all of my commercial software from the late 80's with the exception of only 2 titles thus far. I would recommend this device to anyone looking to make viable copy backups of their commodore collections.


  8. Does the job 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2018

    The ZoomFloppy does its job in an admirable fashion. After a bit of initial fiddling, I have now been able to back up all of my C64 floppies - probably in the nick of time. I couldn't get it to work on a USB3-based system, but with USB2 there were no problems, even under Windows 10.


  9. It works! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jan 2018

    It just works...plug it to your computer's USB port, plug in your C1541, voila! Thank you so much for creating this board.


  10. It is a super Device: 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2017

    I has no problems to inststall opencbm and to use Zoom-Floppy to Windows 7. It is a helpfull tool for a old Retro user like my.
    Except Windows 10.
    Windows 10 recognize Zoom-Floppy bat i cant install opencbm. Win 10 shows me cant found opencbm.dll.
    Until now i couldnĀ“n find the mistake :)

    (RETRO Innovations note: With newer builds of Windows 10, Microsoft *REALLY* does not want you to install unsigned drivers, so opencbm has migrated to use Zadig to bypass the driver signing issue. See here: https://spiro.trikaliotis.net/opencbm-0.4.99.98/opencbm-8.html)
