Thanks :-), I ordered the caps yesterday and will make an attempt to fix 
the drives this week. (I'll probably have to deal with the machine first 
so that I'd have something to test the drives with.)

My worst such experience so far has been the internal drive of my A600 
(a Panasonic JU-253). I managed to revive the unit, but I spent lots of 
time finding all the corroded traces and rewiring everything in such 
small space. The result doesn't really look nice, either ;-), but it at 
least works.

Best regards,
