I'am searching for a 720kB diskdrive an the ROM for my VG-8235.
I bought my second MSX-System (the other one is a Sony HitBit 75D) from E-Bay but the diskdrive doesn't work (maybe the belt). I think the best solution is to upgrade to a 720K drive.

Maybe someone is selling this?

Hi

this belt works for the vg 8235 too :

But you're right the best solution is to change it for a 720k because there's a lot of games on 720k disk.

The belt for a 8245 is totally different as the belt for 8235.

Here the pictures.

Here the belt that you receive by Retrocable :

And how it fits on the floppy drive of the 8235 :

After, you can use your floppies perfectly.
