Question about Cameras
On my Sony MVC-FD88 I had listed this as a similar problem on FixYa.com
and then explored it further. I'm very technical so I replaced the
internal floppy disk drive myself, so wanted to post my findings here.
I bought the internal floppy disk drive (very hard part to find) at partstore.com
It is not an easy procedure if you have not done this type of work before. There are several online places that will replace the floppy disk drive for you.
They are very delicate, any jar to the camera can harm them, as well as, labels on disks loose or a misaligned disk cover on the floppy disk. Mine now works perfectly. Generally, once they jam, getting the floppy disk out often destroys the floppy disk drive heads inside the camera. These are great cameras. I am always impressed by mine, it is a definite keeper. From what I've found the electronics of the camera are quite reliable and I only need to take a couple of pictures at a time, so a memory chip type camera is of no real value to me.
