Sony MPF520-1 MANUFACTURED June 1995. This is a HD floppy drive. I use it as replacement on Falcon. The only think who I do is to set the 3 pin jumper at left of power supply connector to midle and right pin. Work perfectly as HD and DD. :wink:

I managed to make a MITSUMI D359T3 work. It requires some soldering and also a wire to the make it detect HD.

The drive I got with Ralcool's (Sean) HD floppy drive kit works great. It's a Sony MPF920,
modded according to his thread:

Someone just emailed me asking how to do the floppy mod to HD.

Luckily, I blogged it here http://atari-bid.blogspot.com/2011/03/n ... ows-7.html

Cheers Bid.
