CPC to PC parallel data transfer cable

If you need to transfer data between a PC and an Amstrad CPC computer then one way of doing this is to use a parallel data cable.

You will also need the appropriate software on each computer. I will provide more information here in the future (and hopefully a link to the software).

Below is a wiring diagram showing how to make a cable that allows you to connect a CPC computer to a PC using the printer ports on each machine.


Wiring diagrams on this site are provided as is. I cannot be held responsible if you damage your equipment or yourself, either through errors in the wiring diagrams or through any errors that you may make when assembling the lead. Also remember that electricity (especially mains electricity) is dangerous. Take care when working with it.
