I just picked up this atari and about 30 games and programs for Â£8 and found out when I got home that the floppt disk drive dosent work. On first inspection of it, it seemed as if it was just a problem with the belt. The motor was spinning but the belt was not. I replaced it with a tighter rubber band and it works.
However, the head doesn't seem to read so I have tried to re align it and still nothing. I have the mitsumi drive metioned in the title and would like to convert it for the atari. I found a txt file on the net on how to convert a similar mitsumi drive but it seems to be a very different drive.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to convert it or is it too hard as it has no jumpers?
