Does anyone have any info on these drives? I have some in a CP/M system
(Ithaca Intersystems DPS-1), and they seem completely dead. They have an
electric load mechanism, but when I insert a disk, nothing happens.
Popped the case and can't see anything obviously out of place.

Cromemco used these in early models of the System 3; not exactly the most
reliable. Sorry to say, I scrapped several of them a year ago and, although I've
got manuals for most Cromemco stuff I don't think I've got any docs on these.

But I'll have a look and let you know if I find anything. Meanwhile, there are
probably several people on this list who have them and could perhaps at
least compare notes with ya. They are getting power?

Good luck,
