WANTED: external 5.25" floppy drive for ST

Post by Steve Stuppl » Wed, 20 Nov 2002 02:49:41


I'm not having a good week:((( first 2 of my 6-cd changers cd-rom drives
gave up the ghost, and now my external 5.25 drive has decided to part
with it's drive heads:((( so it's now 'skip fodder'.

So I'm after a replacement, either a cumana duel (3.5 & 5.25) of a
single unit.

I'm in the UK:)

thanx in advance

1. External 360k 5.25" floppy

I've got a 5.25" floppy w/cable to connect to the ST. How do I get the
ST to use the drive? Is it a TOS porblem (I've got an oldish system
but I don't know what version of TOS - certainly not 1.4) The drive
spins when I access B: even though it asks for a disk in A: so
something is going right.
