    500ma doesn't sound right for such an old drive, Some of these old drives can be quite power hungry on spin up, I have a box full of old drives and many are up in the 1.0A range in spin up mode, I...

    I've often wondered if one of the "Meanwell" PSU's would be a suitable donor for a PC/XT PSU case, Never done a transplant job myself but i'd go that route as a last resort, I prefer to repair the...

    Probably not, As i said before it's more of an annoyance than anything, Which i can get around by re-booting into a different OS other than Win 2000 or XP on the same PC.

    Yep

    The drive works perfectly fine in DOS, 98 2k with formatting 720k floppy's, Not sure another drive would make a difference but i'll try it sometime tomorrow and report back.

    There's only 3 clicks of the mouse needed to install, No decisions to be made, It made zero difference on Win 2000, I still couldn't access the 360k, I've removed 2k now and just boot between DOS and...

    I just tried that utility but made zero difference on my tweener Win 2k, No big deal, I've decided to remove 2k and will probably extend the 98SE partition.

    It's more of an annoyance for me though i can get around it, I tend to format 1.4M 3.5" floppy's to 1.2Mb 720k and 360k and they work fine in DOS / 95 / 98 but 2K and XP bork on them.
