Hi,

I have a few broken Sanyo drives and just found out that replacing the 10V 4.7 mF capacitor fixed all the non-functional drives!

Maybe this will help other users. Next is to find out how to repair all those broken Philips drives..

Kind regards,

MSXHolder

Thanks for the tip!

Sanyo wavy drives are half-height 3,5" drives and they can be easily replaced with a PC drive. The only caveat is that they have, if I'm not wrong, the power and data in the same cable; so to plug a standard PC drive, an adapter is needed.

The info is in Hans Otten's MSX Info Pages.
