No it cannot :(

After the elation that I might actually have two working Falcon's without any extra expense I am bummed that just as the vendor described the IDE interface and the floppy drive do not work. I swapped the floppy drive for the spare that was included free but that does not want to work either.

I am going to order a spare floppy drive off ebay and while I am at it I am ordering some IDE->Compact Flash adapters and a SCSI II cable so I can use the external SCSI drive which came free. Both absolute bargains at about £2 each. Also bought an Atari SCART cable which will work with the RGB dongle and my MegaSTe. Wasn't cheap at £13 but I know the ebay merchant and his stuff is always good quality.
