This 230V AC Adapter with USB 5V DC output can easy burn your house down.
They used a 0,25m² flex cable to transport the 230-240V AC. What the fuuuuck.
You can see a missing capacitor on the top left. This Capacitor was made for 25V with 22µF. It melted down by overcurrent. The big Transistor is a MJE13003 and not the best choice for 230V more for the United States of America with 110V. The tiny transformer is melted down too. There is no information about this tiny transformer, only that it stinks.
Generally this tiny transformer in cube design is dangerous for European . You have to put your fingers the half way inside the power socket and it is missing a Earth-Connection too.
First grab some fact´s that we need to know about a Floppy Drive.
As Sample I took a NEC FD1231H drive cause it is very often to get on Ebay or Second Hand Shop´s. information’s can be found here.
NEC only give us 5/12V and 1/4W as comments. So we need around 300mA on 5V or 125mA for 12V. There is no advice about the used Voltage… Does it needs 12V or just 5V or both? NEC says it requier´s min 5V.
The big Question is, das USB gives us enought current?
USB 1.X ~ 100mA max.
USB 2.X ~ 500mA max.
USB 3.X ~ 900mA max.
We need 2 external PCB´s, a Arduino Mini-Pro and a FTDI232 or a generic interface to get the Data from the Floppy. The Pro Mini takes around 200mA max. The FTDI max rating´s are 24mA. But what about the Floppy if it´s in bad shape?
So best way is to use an external Power Supply 12V and 1A to be on the secure side.
You can order a PCB for few bug´s soon on ALLPCB.COM , you can plug and play put your hardware at home on the PCB and just need to connect the Floppy to it
A Bundle PCB with all needed part´s except the Floppy and Power Supply, can purchased soon. A Privat to Privat sale and not Commercial. Same for other PCB´s that you can get here too.
First Prototype arrived….

The World Wide Web is full of confidential stuff. It doesn´t matter what kind you are looking for. Full confidential Datasheet´s from manufacturers, customer data from Tax office´s, Burger King internal payroll´s. IF you want them just search for it you will find it.
Iám doing random forensic to keep me up 2 date.. Mostly the company´s staff is lazy or stupid to keep the internal protected. Also privat people don´t care about the privacy or doesn´t now how to handle a NAS to keep details away from the public.
Ok… Never touch anything you find on the net or change it! But here iám a Asshole and set his Alarm clock to 3:30am …. just a prank… but never do anything else like destroy printer or use fax that not belongs to you!
It take´s only less than 10 minutes to find a Jpeg in good quality with valid ID-Card´s. Less than 1 minute to find a privat NAS Service included nude pictures. 1 silly minute for confidential PDF´s that are under NDA. Very high confidential Key´s for RSA or other technical stuff like HDCP.
Do not change or touch anything if you find stuff like that. It´s a local Power supply!

In 2018 we got the 35th birthday of Copy Protection, now called as DRM. In the early 80th developer of bigger Company´s like Lucas Art´s started to protect their games with a kind of Copy Protection with different methodes. On Floppy Disc´s they started to make extra Bad Sectors to fight piracy, the other way was to prevent to copy a Code Book that was printed in colors so nobody can copy the book on a copying machine cause they work only in black and white.
Every of those Copy Protection´s was cracked few weeks lator or they found a way to bypass it.
Hi, so my DSL line is based on O2. Since i got this account i had a issue with VOIP services. So if you wanner call somebody you can´t reach any phone number it gives the busy tone and nothing happens. So today O2 Support called me and we tried to figure out what´s wrong with this device.
The ditribution of illegal IPTV is very easy, but it´s not easy to take them down. Why?
The illegal IPTV sector is splitted up to a handfull of people, that reshare the content over a huge spider network to the customer. Not only IPTV STREAMS are a problem that filthy guys have a libary of illegal copys of movies that are uploaded daily to the servers.
They try to copy a IPTV imperium like Amazon and Netflix that are legal and pretty cheap to have. So why people spend money to support pirates or even terrorits networks?
