DD1 - FD1 Cases
« on: 19:08, 05 February 20 »
If anyone is looking for a DD1 or FD1 case assembly (to replace a broken one perhaps), this guy seems to have some on auction.

Not seen many around so thought it an idea to alert people.

Add a floppy drive inside?  :-\

I would have alerted everyone a few days earlier but he had a DD1 interface on sale which happily I won. As soon as I won, I came on here about the cases. I'm not a total bastard. :-)


They look new. Story goes he needed replacement drives and at the time the whole units were the cheapest way to get them. So they are DD1's and FD1's just missing the drive but with the PSU intact and have never even been plugged in!


But if someone has a damaged unit or wants to put an HXC or 3 inch drive in one, they look like a good way to get a case.

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

No reason to bid!
Sadly the seller does not ship abroad!
