They are not Oric drives, they are a pair of generic Shugart standard drives in a nice box with a b,ack cable and power supply. Cost me £35 from a guy in the Netherlands. He's got more if you want any, but I'll have to post his site URL when I get home.

Are they useful for Oric? I mean, if we connect this behind microdisc drive, can microdisc controller handle these as B and C drives?

They look like 3.5" drives. Aren't they?

Looky here: http://www.benophetinternet.nl/hobby/sales.htm.

They are £45 and include power supply and cable. Standard A/B Shugart floppy drives. Not sure, but I think they are 40/80 track.
