Hi,
I have an external floppy drive that isn't working. After a lot of trial and error it turns out to be the cable that connects the amiga to the pcb that has died. Also the enclosure is quite beat up so does anyone have a dead drive that I could strip? My pcb and the drive itself are fine. Alternatively, a fully working drive would be fine too. (Double Density).

If you can help please let me know how much you would like.

Thanks.

Hi there mate, not sure that you can replace the cable an just fix things up..
You see, there were quite a few manufacturers around building external floppy drives for the Amiga, thus, your best bet would be to mention your model, or maybe post some clear enough pictures for people to compare your cable with theirs! Good luck :thumbsup:

If replacing the case would work for him, I have an empty Supradrive case here. Apparently the original drive died and was removed.

Hi,
Thanks for the replies guys. I would need the cable more than anything. The case would be a nice extra. I'll post all the info and pics as soon as I get home.
Thanks!
