Awesome, i was looking for something like that for the 3.5" drive
but ran into this instead http://www.deviceside.com/fc5025.html (for a
5.25" drive)

but neither can write to the disk yet. Looks like i would have to
stick with ADTPro as a solution to transfer data to a Apple II disk.


Well, they claim the hardware for writing is all there in KryoFlux, it's
just not yet in the software. If they have a documented API (no idea
whether they do), write support for one particular classic floppy format
shouldn't be all that hard to implement.

That will be true if there is significant buffering on the card.
(Otherwise, the USB interface itself is not sufficiently real-time capable to write an Apple disk.)
