View Full Version : Macintosh 128k External FDD Repair

July 13th, 2012, 02:22 PM
Greetings and long time, no see, people!

I recently got a Macintosh 128k computer from my Aunt, and after some repair and cleaning on an External FDD included with it, I was able to get it to read disks.

However, formatting them is another story. This I know why. The drive motor can't spin the disk fast enough for the computer to format it correctly.

Is there a way to remove and lubricate the motor so it spins more freely?
