I have an A500 with bad internal floppy and need a replacement unit.

Anyone have one or can direct me to one?

Thanks,

The model you want is probably a Chinon FB-354. In my experience, you can use any variation of this drive (So, the A2000 or A3000 versions) you just have to remove the LED and use the eject button from your dead A500 drive.

Nah, don't want to try and track one down.

If anyone has a drive for sale let me know.
