    Default Commodore FDD 1581 3.5"

    For sale:

    Commodore 1581 FDD 3.5"

    Very rare these days

    * 1581 Drive
    * serial cable
    * power supply
    * formatted disk

    The drive looks like new and is in very good condition, not yellowed due to about 30 years old.

    I have tested the drive:

    * format a disk OK
    * write a full disk OK
    * load files from disk OK

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_1581

    It has the new controller chip WD1772, see pictures

    3160 Blocks free, it can almost contain 5x 5,25" disks (664 Blocks)

    No guarantee or return due to age and shipping risc.

    200 PayPal family'n' friends (then no fee) and ex shipping (ask for shipping cost)

    Can send without powersupply, cause 1541-II powersupply works to if you have one.
    Because the powersupply is heavy in weight and cost al lot of shipping cost.

    Already sold 1581 drives here see my threads and feedback.

    It is for DD floppies only. Basically it is the same drive as Amiga DD drives but with specialised controller board.
