Desperately needing 3.5 inch DD disk drive (1Mb/720K)

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Daniel Vonboles, May 3, 2004.

  1. Hi all,

    Has anyone got an old DD (1Mb unformatted/720K formatted) floppy drive
    for which you have no use any more?

    Or has anyone got an older PC (Acorn, Amiga, etc..) which may house
    one of these? I am asking as I really want to find one of these. If
    anyone has access to one or knows where I can acquire one please let
    me know here as it's kind of important.

    Thanks in advance for any help. Hope to talk to you soon,

    Daniel Vonboles

  2. Mind if I ask why you need one? The newer floppy drives were
    backwards compatible, and could format (with the correct setting),
    read and write DD disks.
