Akai S900 disk drive replacement

Since keeping it strictly old school is a must, i decided NOT to go the Gotek/ HxC floppy drive emulation route to make up for my S900’s broken floppy disk drive.

Which disk drives can be used to replace the Akai S900 floppy drive? Theres a page on gearsluts with a few suggestions, but i felt the info was a bit messy and not really clear (a few yes this works, some no-nos etc).

I took an old amiga 500 external floppy disk drive and yes it works on the akai S900-just be careful about the header’s orientation. It is a drop in replacement. It can format and use modern HD floppy disks too.

So in a nutshell: amiga 500 floppy disk drives can work as a replacement for the Akai S900 sampler.

Just a piece of info from Masu.
