Thanks a lot. My drive is still functional but another that I've
been communicating with has troubles with his drives. I think
this is just what he needs.
I'm not sure why the designer of this circuit used buffers on 4 of
the signals? I'd think these could be just directly wired. It does
require that the drive be 720KB compatible. Many newer drives
don't support this but it looks like the NEC drive mentioned
is relatively easy to get.
