Apple 5.25 Drive




Apple 5.25 Drive, A9M0107.

This is a floppy-disk drive that uses removable, 5.25-inch disks to store and retrieve data. You can use this 5.25 Drive with ANY Apple II in the Apple II family of computers.

Apple ][, Apple ][ Plus and Apple //e models require an Apple I/O or 5.25 Drive controller card (not included). Apple //c models and Apple IIGS have built-in floppy disk ports. Also used with the IIe card on the Macintosh.

This was the last 5.25 drive that Apple made. Features daisy chaining on the rear, gray feet and Platinum in color to match the Platinum Apple IIe and IIGS. It replaced the Unidisk Drive which is Beige in color.

All are clean and tested to read and write and have all their feet. Expect minor scuffs or scratches, these are almost 35 years old. Exterior condition varies from as Nice as it gets to Severely discolored or a cracked (broken) housing and everything in between. More information about coloring can be found here. I will try to put drives in the most appropriate category as far as exterior condition, but as the photos show, it is very hard to judge with some. Engraving will be disregarded in favor of coloring unless it is large and prominent. If you are buying a drive along with a computer purchase, I will do my best to match the coloring.
