Hi guys.

I have two of the Oceanic drives which are my favourite drives for the C64. One of them was an Excellerator+ branded drive and I have a lot of issues with it.

The drive has read write issues on known working disks, as well as newly formatted disks on the drive. It is a lot like the alignment issues with a 1541, however as far as I know there is no method to re-align them. I have tried the obvious things like cleaning the head and trying the good PSU.

Does anyone have any expertise on these drives? Would love to have it working again.

Regards
