The Liftrom Disk Drive is a floppy disk interface that was sold with a single-sided 180kB 5.25" floppy disk drive in Brazil. Power supply is internal. A floppy disk with MSX-DOS 1 was included.

The interface includes a Brazilian regionalized ROM with version 1 of the Disk BASIC instructions. Last version of the Disk ROM is v.2.7. It is compatible with standard PC 3.5" (360 or 720kB) and 5.25" (180 or 360kB) floppy drives.

Almost every MSX FDD interface uses a memory interface, but this one (and also the Microsol CDX models) uses ports instead.
