Your best bet would be to email Tomy at Tototek.com or Frankie at gmedoctorhk.com and see if they can sell you just the disk drive mechanism.

Ask for just the disk drive mechanism, not a complete FDS.  Wink

What is Frankie's email address at gamedoctorhk.com ? I have been looking at the site for a while, and can't find a contact button.

Thanks
