5.25" from Tandy 1000 compatible with PCjr?

Recommended Posts

Will a 5.25" DS/DD diskette drive from a Tandy 1000 work in a PCjr or did Tandy customize the floppy drive?


Yes, Tandy used stock drives. However, the PCjr's drive had a fan on it to keep the drive cool while working and, more importantly, to provide some airflow to the system. You should find a way to mount a fan if you are going to use a 3rd party drive.
