This adapter allows to replace internal FDD of SONY MSX into 2 slim FDDs.
I have confirmed it works fine on HB-F1XD, F1XDmk2, F1XDJ, F1XV and HB-F900.
Also may be used for external FDD unit such as HBD-20W, HDB-30W, and HDB-20W.
If a lot of people want this, I may mass-produce it.
Do you interest?

But will the drives be placed outside of the MSX?

As for F1XD, XDmk2, XDJ, and XV, if you want to place FDDs internally, need to cutting the casing of the MSX.

Cutting the MSX is not an option. Does it work with only one FDD?

Of course it does.
However, even in that situation, the slim FDD will not be placed inside of F1XD series MSX, since ejector knob does not fit its casing without cutting.

I've implemented 2 slim FDD into HBD-20W drive unit.
See below:

But this way is not applicable for HBD-F1.
I've found in HBD-F1, only one DriveSelect signal routed between the interface unit and drive unit.
Therefore, also signal cable should be replaced.

@SonyTEL
I've estimated as 30EUR for assembled, and 20EUR for DIY kit, excluded shipping cost.
However, if it will be sold 100 sets.
