QuoteIt is a slightly different size to that used in the 180k A drive. Fitting a standard A drive rubber belt will often result in B drive read errors.
Quote from: andrewferguson on 17:55, 23 August 20A couple of years ago I was given some PCW 3-inch drives, to use as spares. The time has now come to actually use them, but they'll be needing new belts before that.I looked on ebay for belts, and I noticed that one seller was selling a different belt for the "B" drive (720k), saying that:I'd never heard of this before, nor have I encountered this advice before online, and am wondering how true it is. (For what it's worth, the seller is charging extra for the "B" drive belts, although only £1 extra).If the belts are indeed different, that could be a bit interesting, as I am not 100% sure whether the drives I have are A or B drives. When I got them, two were labelled as A and one as B, but I'm not 100% sure of this. Is there a way to check without connecting the drive and checking it with a 720k disk (which I cannot do until I've changed the belts)?
