I have an external SmartDisk FDUSB - TMM / Mitsumi D353FUE lying around here in London, having re-found it during a tidy up a few days ago. I also have some new disks. I don't know if it reads your sizes or writes. I can test it if it suits, and you are still looking after a month. Regards, Tony.

Hi, Thanks for your response. It seems that the kind of disk drive I am seeking has not been made or supplied for some twenty years. This kind of drive was a common component of PCs up until about the 1990's.

The drive reads and writes to 5.25 inch floppy disks and can write to 360Kb disks or 1.2Mb disks.

I am unfamiliar with the drive you mention in your email but I would really appreciate it should you be able to check it out.

I hope to hear from you soon

PS Please let me know the price for which you would sell the drive

If you are still looking I can locate and supply you with a clean working 5.25", 1.2 M Teac FDD in a Black or White colour for £30.00 + delivery in the UK only.

Thanks for your response.

If you can work out the cost of postage (air preferably) and add it to the cost of the drive I would be most happy to send you the money before your despatch of the drive.

I do hope you can help.

Failing that I will be in the UK in June 2014 and could arrange to collect the drive at that time.
