It happened to me with a Commodore monitor which I had opened and then the lower half fell out of place. Since the topic was about a 1581 drive with its head stuck, it may actually be possible to break the hard covered disk just as well. If it had been a 5.25" drive, one may need to put the floppy in the freezer to properly break it. :) It doesn't matter so much, if everyone on the list understand what was the problem with Spiro's drive and how he fixed it thanks to Ray's directions. We can say that the R/W head was xyzzied, whatever that becomes in German. -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
