You need also a brand new Floppy drive, coming out freshly from the factory; You can get some just righton those recommended websites : (15 euros) (website in maintenance today :? )

"Atari" Joysticks : (again !)

A bunch of things here (Floppy drives, electronic parts) :

Tape player (3 Jacks : in/out/motor) :

- Every where on the Web

Do not hesitate to add your good links here :wink:
