Im looking for a replacement for a ST internal drive. I want to use the
original faceplate. I know the epson SMD-340 (1.44mb) will accept the
faceplate with the small eject button will the SMD-300(720K) also accept

Actually the drive Atari used was the SMD380. I still have a NEW one in
the Atari parts cabinet with the custom Atari faceplate already mounted.
You can have it for $30 plus shipping. Reply in Email if interested.

I need to replace the floppy drive in my 1040ST and have picked up a
Mitsumi D359T3. I understand you can use a 1.4 MEG drive but will only
be able to read and format 720k, which is okay for my use. I have found
the jumper settings on the internet for this model. However, they give
what they call numeric codes and alphabetical codes and twisted cable
and straight cable for both A and B. What are these? I was expecting
settings for just plain A or B. I have also heard that you have to
reverse the cable in the 1040ST from what you would normally expect. Is
this correct? How do I arrange the pin alignment? Perhaps this drive
won't even work?
Thanks for the help.
