Micropolis and Tandon definitely look correct. Hard to tell about the MPIs because they're open, but probably correct; the metal piece across the latch does not go all the way across in the Tandons as it does in the MPI pictures, and the plastic cone also looks about right for an MPI. m ----- Original Message ----- From: <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Saturday, March 15, 2014 5:17 PM Subject: Re: Who owns a 8050/8250 with tandon drives? ------------------------------------------------------ From: MikeS email@example.com > - If you push down on the latch to open and close it, it's a Micropolis. So I take all of the working ones are Micropolis, like: http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58002657/_temporary/2014-03-15%2021.37.41.jpg Out of those, probably non-working ones, which I had relatively easy access to, namely three units I was able to access without breaking too much on the way, after unpacking two look like: > - If it's got a flip-up latch and you can slip a piece of cardboard into > the > slot on either side of the (closed) latch, it's an MPI. http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58002657/_temporary/2014-03-15%2021.38.30.jpg http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58002657/_temporary/2014-03-15%2021.38.41.jpg > - If it's got a flip-up latch and you can see a 4mm wide silver metal > piece > across the disk slot on both sides of the (closed) latch, it's a Tandon. Do you mean like this: http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58002657/_temporary/2014-03-15%2021.39.52.jpg ? If yes and your heartbeat rate rose - then the only problem is that this is a 2031 rather than 8050/8250... :-( There is still some - I don’t know - maybe 10 to 15 units in various stages of disfigurement but I can’t promise that I’ll be able to get closer to them soon. Shall try and see maybe tomorrow if this can be made feasible. -- SD!
