    What's the make and model number of the drive that's supposed to be in there?

    If you punch some holes in the cable to prevent power from coming through you can use a lot of the older Sony floppies. Just take the plastic bezel off and transfer that blue eject button to the replacement drive, then power it directly from the power supply.

    I did this very thing in my 1000RL. The one in there is actually a 1.44, but the controller will recognize it as a 720.
