Dear Folk,
I want to read data from any 3.5" floppy through floppy drive using microcontroller. I can't find the communication protocol in the internet or any other related projects. If any of you have idea about this, please let me know and help me. I will be thankful to you.

Regard.

Don't even consider it - it's too difficult, as micro-controllers don't have enough RAM to hold the data - there are MUCH better (and far easier) options, such as SD cards.

I've already told you the situation, if you want to try and do it?, then feel free to try.

However, you might try consulting the PICList archive - it was discussed in depth many years ago.
