Thread: Replacing the floppy drive on a Tandy 1000 RL HD

    Default Replacing the floppy drive on a Tandy 1000 RL HD

    I have a Tandy 1000 RL HD. Everything functions, except the floppy does not work. Any suggestions on obtaining a replacement, since this drive draws it's power through the floppy cable. It's a Teac 720K drive model FD-235F 105-U. No luck doing a google search except for an out stock notice on Amazon Canada:

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Most people create a new cable that handles the power requirements properly; then they can use any normal 3.5" DSDD drive. I believe vwestlife did a video on making the cable?
    Offering a bounty for:
    - A working Sanyo MBC-775, Olivetti M24, or Logabax 1600
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)

    While searching for the info about the cable made by vwestlife, I found this little gem. Currently out of stock, but when it becomes available again I am going to order one. It does the same thing allowing a standard 3.5" drive to be used.
