   Zenith used 2" disk in one of their laptops, I think it was called a Mini-Sport. I've found the machines and disk on both E-bay and at hamfest. I used to have two drives and about 13 or 14 disks but gave them away. Mike Haas got them.

   I gave Don Maslin the 3" drive and disk that I used to have. You can try to talk him out of them.

   There was a 3 1/4" disk advertised on E-bay just recently. I may have the seller's address if you can't find it by searching E-bay.
