i am in need of amiga 600 and 1200 floppy drives both died the same week which is bloody typical (n)

Maybe you put the same rottern floppy in both drives, are they dead as in no power at all or just read errors? If its the latter did you try to clean the heads.

What drives did they use in the A600/A1200? Is it the same FB-354s as in the A500? If so, I might be able to help you in a few days.

IIRC the drive from an A500 is too big to fit in the A600/A1200 case.
