Buenas,

Alguien sabe la medida de la goma de la disquetera de este msx? He probado con varias y no hay manera. Incluso con la del wx, wsx, etc

Un saludo

First, you are in the English part of the forum.

Secondly, check the Wiki : https://www.msx.org/wiki/Panasonic_FS-A1F

Excerpt :

"The built-in firmware is a new version of the well-known Panasonic DESKPAC software (Clock settings, Screen adjust, Clock, Calendar, Calculator, Screen colors + 3 options that require the utility disk: disk tool, graphic tool in SCREEN 8, the application Word Processor, Address Book & Name Card). The firmware can be skipped by pressing DEL key while booting."

It implies that the utility disk of this computer can't be used on any other MSX computer (even a Panasonic) as the specific combination ROM + utility disk requires to select the option of the disk in the menu provided by the ROM part. This utility disk does not have its own menu.

mars2000you, I am almost sure he's asking about the rubber belt for the A1F disk drive.

Call me childish, but I won't answer until he asks in english. If I have to write in english here (and not just supposed to), he should write in english as well.

Yes, there's the word 'goma' in his post... but to avoid useless using of A1F disk on other computers, my message can be useful.

For the rubber belt, all info is also in the Wiki : https://www.msx.org/wiki/Panasonic_FS-A1F (last part of the page with links)

That's just your opinion. Online translators are very useful.

No problem at all, hondamsx!

Personally I don't have the A1F, but a fellow brazilian stated that its floppy disk drive uses the same rubber belt from later panasonic models (A1FX, A1WX, A1WSX, A1ST and A1GT). (Actually, our fellow @wernerkai states that it uses the same drive, Matsushita EME-213)

The rubber belt dimensions are:
Lenght 186mm
Width 2,4mm
Thickness 0,4mm

Rubber diameter is about 60mm.

In Brazil, we have a few locally available suitable models, so I belive you will find something where you are.

If you're going to import it from japan, you can use the code DFWV75C0009. There's a Word Processor from Panasonic, the FW-U1P501, that uses this exact rubber belt.
