Amstrad DDI-1 / FD-1
The Amstrad DDI-1 was sold as a set consisting of a DDI-1 (Disk Drive Interface) and an FD-1 3-inch disk drive. It also came with a CP/M 2.2 disk and license. This set was intended for the CPC-464 which did not come with a built-in 765 floppy disk controller.
The FD-1 disk drive was also sold seperately where it could be used as a secondary drive for the CPC-664, CPC-6128, and for the CPC-464 with DDI-1 attached.
The actual drive was a different model to the one contained in the 664 and 6128, but is functionally the same, and is attached to the case in the same way.
The interface besides providing a connection to the computer, also contained a ROM chip which has the firmware for the FDD and the CP/M 2.2 disk software.Date : Unknown
