As the title says... I'm looking for an external drive unit to use for my A600.
It would be great if it's in a nice condition. Even better if it's a new 1011 hahaha j/k :D

If you can get some pics I would really appreciate it (y)

Thanks in advance

If looking for a nice and bright unit, don't take it.(y)

I tested it, it works, it is a little slow ejecting floppy's but after testing a couple of disks, it seems a little revived. (nice quite unit)

We can't arrange shipping yet, since I don't have a device to calculate the weight.... (I do it at work)

Maybe you need this post open since were looking between 6.40 EU and 26, my guess is 19.. (it's a complete metal unit)

So I'll stand by..

Jurgen,

Thanks for the info mate.
A local friend of mine might send me an external floppy in the next week so better to hold the post open as you said. When you have weight gimme a shout here and I will on my behalf if I get the local drive or not :)

Of course whoever is local with you, can get priority on the offer since he doesn't have to pay so much for the shipment :)

Cheers

Yes it's rather stupid, that we can't help one another without paying that much shipping for an old bad looking floppy drive..:( I still have to calculate to galaxi for the other unit to, that one is more plastic, let's hope..:( At work we have a weight calculater..

It's going to be around 10 EU to ship it.

Drawbacks:

white enclosure, black floppy drive in.
some paint got of the enclosure

might have, or need in the future a fix to eject the floppy drive. eeh (spring in English or not?

Thx for the info my friend. I found today an external floppy drive from a local friend so there is no need to pay the extra cost :)
Better for someone else close to you, taking it in case it's needed.

Thanks once more mate. Thread can be closed.
