WTB: Memorex 651 Floppy Drive (for software restoration project)


Experienced Member

I'm searching for a Memorex 651 drive to use for a (non-commercial) data recovery project.

The 651 is an 8" drive, but predates conventional 8" drives and is physically very different (hard sectored, different RPM, etc).

If you have one that you are prepared to sell, please let me know.

Here is a link to the manual for the 651 -> https://archive.org/download/bitsavers_memorexdisEM_1644196/651.60-05_651floppyOEM.pdf

The media looks like this:
