I am afraid I cannot help you with 8 1/2" floppy drives. I had two of the Siemen's floppy drives in an S-100 system I built about 20 years ago and gave them away more than 10 years ago. They are just too old to do anything with by anyone except devote historical hobbiest like your self. If you look hard in a large library you may find some info on how to do it. I would start by looking under Sam's publications (probably on microfiche, if still avaialable). They probably need alignment and cleaning. You will need an oscilloscope and an alignment floppy to align them. I just don't know where you can find the floppy. Larry
