I have one in my 2000, WB 3.1.  I don't recall if I had to upgrade anything to get it to work (Very long time ago)

Hey there -

I was just curious which Amigas (and KS/WB versions) support 1.44/1.76MB
floppy drives?

I have an HxC emulator that can support 1.76MB ADF files, and I know some
later Amigas can support this format, but it doesn't work on my Amiga 500,
at least when booted to KS/WB 2.0 or 3.1.  I believe the floppy controller
on the Amiga is part of Paula, so what else changed that allowed this
format to work?   Would a stock 1200?
