I have an Indus GT and it works fine, but sounds like hell. I very seldom use it, but has been bugging me that it's in need of TLC. Took it apart and as I figured the belt is more than fairly worn. Anyone know of a good place to order one (part number?)? I still have a handful of old floppies I need to copy and don't think the current belt will make it! (though, so far so good) I Use a SIDE2 and SIO2SD, so after I finish my transfers may trade or sell (prefer to trade) but haven't decided yet. Thanks!
Hi All, I have a non-working Xf551. The head moves out of the diskette window range. The track 0 sensor is working correctly, the problem is in the other size (closer to the center of the diskette). If I ask for a disk formating the head moves nicely step by step from the outside to the inside, but finally start hitting the plastic border of the floppy window. First I thought the track zero sensor was wrongly located "too inside", but even after moving it as far as I can away from the center still the head hits the border close to the center of the diskette. I have little hope regarding this mechanics, but I want to try something else meanwhile I wait for a another d503 or other 360kb drive to show up in ebay with a decent price tag. BTW, I already checked that the xf551 works with another mech. Of my other xf551, so I concluded the problem it is NOT in the xf551 board. Thanks for any help.
