Thread: Maynard Electronic Hard Drive Motor Problem

  1. #1

    Default Maynard Electronic Hard Drive Motor Problem

    Hello, I have ISA HardCard 20 from Maynard Electronic. There is nice 20MB 3,5" MFM hard drive. Problem is with disk rotation. When I turn it ON, disk is not rotating, but when I start gently turning with ring which is connected to moving heads, disk start rotating and work without problems. When I turn it off and again turn on, sometimes disk starts without moving with heads, but mostly I must again repeat operation with moving heads.
