In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

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.
