I've got a drive somewhere around here, and maybe a tape or two, I can't
really remember. However, I got two of them in a "10kg box of goodies"
bought from Bull Electrical
( I took one of them
apart, because at that time I didn't recognise the connector. I had vague
notions of using the box for something, but couldn't be bothered in the
end. I chucked that one out. Then, a couple of years ago, I noticed the
price they were selling on eBay for, and cursed...

If I can find the bits, you can have 'em for free - the box shows severe
water damage, so I've no idea what the drive itself is like. I don't think
I have a master cartridge either. I'd recommend you call Bull and see if
they can find any for you, chances are you'll get loads for a song if they
haven't got rid of them all already.

eBay if you don't mind paying, otherwise check out garage sales & the like.

Cheers, Ade.
Be where it's at, B-Racing!
