As I wrote on c.s.c. - my (yet untested) idea is to use black tape  
attached to the side of the "turntable" with a small strip of metalic  
tape and use the optical way.

There is unfinished product of mine, which is basically a reversed  
and partially adapted 15sec copy. Until now I made it work with both  
Speed/Dolphin2 AND Dolphin3 and started adapting to IDE64. I still  
wanted to make it work with Prologic parallel connection before I  
fully move to IDE stuff but if there is a need - I may change
