  1. I was wondering if it is possible to fix an external drive for the above
    laptop. I replaced the drive out of another unit but the form factor is
    all wrong. So the interface and cable are OK. Any ideas on fixing the
    drive itself?

  2. Try cleaning the read heads and lubing the the mechanics.

    Buy a USB floppy.
  5. The drive makes reading noises like it is attempting to read the floppy
    but it doesn't succeed.

    buy a can of compressed air, with the little straw on the nozzle. stick it
    in the drive door and blow it out for 20-30 seconds.


  7. Catch the heads as they fly out, too.
