In part 2 of this series, the case designs inspired by the reverse engineering of the Commodore CMD FD-Series FD-2000/FD-4000 are discussed. It’s remarkable that 31 years after the debut of the CMD FD-Series disk drive, the community remains vibrant and active. Join 8-Bit Resurgence as they embark on a journey to recreate these cases.

Thomas Christoph the man in the video and owner of COREi64 has posted the following update on his site.

I’m pleased to announce that I have a license agreement to sell licensed copies of the FD-Series ROMs for those of you planning on building your own FD-Series drive. I also obtained a license for JiffyDOS. So going forward, you’ll be able to fulfil your JiffyDOS/ROM needs at COREi64.com or from the original source, store.go4retro.com

So if you are going to build yourself an FD drive, please do consider supporting the rights owner of the DOSrom by purchasing what you need from either location. It’s not a lot of money in the grand scheme of your build.
