Hi everyone ! just looking for a second (internal) and original A2000 floppy drive in very good condition, to put it in my NOS A2000 I bought few weeks ago. I mention that it must be "original" so the plastic face fits 100% :D

package to be send to Greece !!! :rainbow:

Thank you. (y)

Reached a deal with Marag. I've wrapped up a spare Chinon drive for him, just awaiting payment!

Payment received and drive went in the post today. Should reach Greece within about 5 days.

Just to keep this thread updated, the item hasn't arrived with Marag and he and I have been discussing the best way forward via PM. I'm going to file a claim with the post office for the lost item and see if we can get a refund for it.

Alas, this is the first time I've had something go wrong. The disk drive never arrived with marag, it's lost in the postal service somewhere. (n)

I've refunded marag his money and will proceed to make a claim with the post office next week.:mad:

In the mean time, I will re-mark this thread as 'Wanted' in case anyone else has a suitable drive for marag.(y)

Just one more tip ! I see that its a bit hard to find an internal A2000 second floppy drive so if someone has the drive that its "dead" or only the front plastic cover of the drive and wants to sell it or he doesnt need it then you can send it to me, I have 2 spare internal floppy drives from A500 so I could make the modification quite easily !

I will wait PM's or post replies and my Amiga will wait until then wide open ...

Thank you in advance, :roll:

Andreas.
