Repairing PDD

From: Roger Merchberger <>

I run a Tandy Model 100/102/200 mailing list (the NEC, Olivetti & other
Kyocera-OEM'd laptops are also very welcome there! ;-) and this person
posed a question about repairing her Portable Disk Drive. Can anyone here
help her?

You can reply directly to the poster, or you can reply to the mailing list
( as it's an open list - you need not be subscribed
to post to it.

Thanks a lot!

Recycling is good, right???  Ok, so I'll recycle an old .sig.
If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
disarmament should *not* be your first career choice.
