Two BBC Drives where sold on Trademe just weeks ago !!!
No Disk drive, No drama, Buy a Solid State Drive off ebay.com.au (they sell like hot cakes)
They hold 511 Floppies, and load at three times the speed, the package includes cable and an EPROM for your BBC
I purchased one as soon as my Visa Debit card arrived and cant wait for it to arrive (its only days away!)
I may mount it inside a spare BBC 5.25 Disk Drive slim line case I have
By the way as the BBC circuit diagrams are less than clear, the filter caps are 0.1uf and 0.01uf (I just threw that in just in case yours have shorted and unwound as they do ! I replaced the 220uf to ensure reliable starting )
Those BBC power adapters always run a little hot for my liking so I like to leave the lid unscrewed (just lift it off) and run a fan over the computer while its running (I never let my vintage computers get hot!)
Im off to play a game of "yie-ar-kung fu" now !!! (which of my BBC's share I play it on ? ) I Love BBC's !!!!
