  • From now on we will require that a prefix is set for any items in the sales area. We have created regions and locations for this. We also require that you select a delivery option before posting your listing. This will hopefully help us streamline the things that get listed for sales here and help local people better advertise their items, especially for local only sales. New sales rules are also coming, so stay tuned.

do you know for sure they don't work properly, or just selling as-is because they are untested?

They don't work for me. I've tried them in my 233 tweener where I run TEAC 1.2M and 360K drives without any problem. But I'm not sure that these really old drives don't need a 286 or something of that era to run properly. I think they are both in need of some repair.

Do the drives get a light when they are plugged in? To me, that spells capacitor issues or cold/cracked solder joints.

Scratch that question.
