View Full Version : Closed A2000 floppy drive risers

26th March 2010, 12:36
The floppy drive on my A2000 (a surplus A500 one) is mounted using A500 risers.

This was fine when it had no facia/bezel, but now that i DO have the bezel i am finding that the floppy drive is mounted slightly too high.

Does the A2000 use specific risers for the floppy?

If so does anyone have for sale?

I think you need to grip them in a vice and get the ole file out, don't forget plenty of elbow grease & patience.

I haven't got any I can sell, but you can basically use a threaded standoff/spacer. About 6mm is the correct length.
Ie, Farnell PN 1466745. If you already have some of a smaller length (from an old pc case, for example) you could always shim it up using washers.
