Making an adapter cable

You need 3206 modchip if your fds drive has 3206 chip inside.
You can buy it here


For disk reading and writing, join two RAM adapter cable ends together. Nintendo AV cables
(for SNES / N64 / Gamecube) can also be used, you'll need to cut the bumps off them to
make them fit.

      End of RAM adapter cable

  Join pins 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, B, C from one connector to the other.
  Leave the other pins unconnected.

 

Most AV cables have some pins missing (if you know one that doesn't, let me know!) I've found that Cinpel SCART N64 cables have enough pins, but one is in the wrong place.

If you only want to read disks, splice all the same colored wires on a Cinpel cable together
EXCEPT black, leave it unconnected. 
For writing, also join the black wires, then open up both connectors and move pin 8 to pin 5.

Twin Famicom

Use this pin mapping for connecting FDSStick to a Twin Famicom.
