Hi

I am looking for a working LS-120/Superdrive floppy drive. Ideally Internal and with Windows 3.1/DOS drivers.

If anyone has one going cheap, I would be grateful if you can contact me.:)

Hi limboy777,
I do have one. But I have to go through my boxes first. So it might take a while until I can get you an answer. What I don't know is if it still working. Last time I use it was 10 years ago and I don't know if I have a drive disk for it. AFAIK you needed a BIOS which supported LS120 drive.
I let you know when I found it.

Hi lopos

Thanks for replying. :thumbsup:It is for an Amstrad Mega PC

I dont remember any settings in BIOS for the LS-120 but will check when I get a chance. Does the drivers not just make it work?

I found this pdf document about the LS 120 drive. I states that for for some Win version you need to install a driver. There is also some info on this site ---> Link (http://www.mitsubishielectric.com.au/895.htm)
Btw. I am still looking for the drive. So far I found a internal ZIP250 drive:Doh:

Thanks for the link and also the manual.

There is no option that I can see for ls-120 on the mega pc. Would it not work anyway?

I've always wanted one of these, but they were never available around here. I wish you the best of luck getting one. Apparently they break really easily.

Hi limboy777
found the LS 120 drive and it worked fine on my Win7 pc. I know nothing about your Mega-pc so i don't know if this drive works without any drivers.
