This page was last modified 09:20, 20 March 2019 by Rderooy. Based on work by Mars2000you and Gdx and others.

Single Sided 360kB 3.5" Floppy Disk Drive and Interface adapter. Supports up to two drives.
There is also the Philips VY-0011 which is the secondary drive (without interface adapter).

Identical to the JVC HC-FC303, even the ROMs can be swapped. It is possible to upgrade the ROM to support double sided (720KB) media, but this also requires the actual drive to be replaced.

The interface includes a ROM with version 1 of the Disk BASIC commands.

It is reported in the Dutch MSX Computer Magazine 07 (page 63) that the drive works in combination with the Sony HBD-50 controller.
