Hi,

My Amiga 1000 floppy drive is dead :-(

I've got an expansion board inside which wont allow me to fit a standard drive because of the floppy connector position (original drive has the connectors over to the left hand side).

If you have one your willing to part with PLEASE let me know!

Thanks

Some PC units have the data cable on the left side. All you need to do is convert the unit as DS0 and swap 2x34 pins.

Notice that most of actual units have the eject button more to the middle of the fascia.

Yeah I heard about this but getting hold of drives capable of being converted isnt easy and my soldering skills are poor!! :unsure:

Hoping someone has an a1000 they can butcher :cool:

Thanks

Still looking for one.

Anyone? Will pay good for an original A1000 Floppy drive.

Thanks

Can you take a couple of photos of the drive, so people can see what it is about the drive that you're looking for? It might help someone advise if they have something suitable. :-)

Yes, good idea!

I will get this done at the weekend.

Thanks
