Hi all,

I posted something similar in one of the Facebook CoCo groups, but wanted to reach out here as well:

I haven’t used a CoCo since the mid-1980s, but recently picked up a Coco 3, along with a disk controller, et al. I used an aftermarket product for my original CoCo to deal with the tinned contacts on the disk controller, which invariably resulted in data corruption when they got dirty. These were essentially a solder-on set of gold contacts. Is anyone aware of any products like this? Naturally I ended up (again) with one of controllers with tinned contacts—I believe only one model had gold contacts straight from the factory.
