Wanted : External 3.5" FDD case (only)

Hi,

I am looking for an external 3.5" floppy disk drive case, could be from a Beeb, Atari, Amiga etc. Cumana made quite a few versions. I just need the case to put an existing drive in, no drive, PSU, or cables needed

regards
Dave

If you weren't too worried about size or aesthetics, you could fake it with modern components: get an external CD-ROM drive enclosure and a 5.25" to 3.5" bay converter kit.

Hi,

Thanks for the tip, I’d prefer a smaller enclosure, but may have to compromise I guess

Regards
Dave
