I Broke A Vintage Floppy Drive Motor
My Commodore 8050 drive died two months ago, while being attached to a IEEE-USB interface. It seems the read-head of drive 0 was driven too far. After fixing that issue, I noticed that drive 1 wasn’t formatting disks — again. Suspecting that the DC motor for the drive might have an issue, I wanted to open it up to do maintenance. A bad decision…
I read the description of this video and it made me sad enough to not want to watch it.. 🤣! I'll watch it tonight on the way home I think. Cheers!
