Wasn't there a way to built in a PC Disk-drive like in a Turbo R? Then you wouldn't have this problem ever again. Sometimes you can find them on Ebay, but there might be some extra modification necessary.

Already posted the link in the 2nd post (worst case scenario)

So it looks like that's the route I should go then? Put a new PC drive in that doesn't have the belt. Will it run original MSX floppy disk games or will I need copies?

Or perhaps this one that was just inked? https://www.marktplaats.nl/a/computers-en-software/overige-c... How would I hook this one up to my MSX?

That'll work but it'll cost you a cartridge slot and you'll have your disk stuffed with stuff that's already inside your computer.
