Someone I know Is selling an Amstrad CPC 6128 with a disc drive that is broken and doesn't receive power. I'm not technically savvy, so I wont try to fix it. Is there an alternative from any other port that I can use an SD card type storage for this? The cheaper the better  ;)

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

Almost all other options: 3in Disk, HxC, Gotek only need 5V so they would work. Alternatively there are a few options such as the M4 which use the expansion port.

Thanks! I'm not sure the 5v to the disk is working though.
