Is there anybody who has already successfully modified such a Y-E Data YD-380B drive?

If not, anyone wanting to have a go with mine? Should be someone who knows what he's doing though... ;-) Oh well, and best would be from Germany or at least from Europe, overseas shipping costs are a true show-stopper in this case.

(I have looked at it myself and it should be doable. However, I am uncertain about misaligning the drive and such things, because I have never done it before with any drive...)

I would pay for this service, depends upon how much is being asked for, of course.

Cheers.

Drives I have used successfully:

(The tracks number here refers to the number of the max track, so you probably have to add 1 for the 0-track as it looks this topic tracks not the max track but the number of tracks)

3.5":
Alps DF354H090F, Tracks: 83
Mitsumi D359ME, Tracks: 82
TEAC FD-235HF, Tracks: 81

5.25":
Chinon FZ-502 RevA, Tracks: 41
TEAC FD-55GFR, Tracks: 83
Mitsumi D509V3, Tracks: 83

It's a five years old topic, but I have now somewhat similar problem. Everything worked at first, now I get this aforementioned "no flux reversal found" on every single track/disk/drive. What could cause this?

Floppy cable broken? Got a different one to test?

Tested with another cable, same result, except that one error was added to the previous errors.

Buffering error was reported with the 2nd cable. Strange, it worked perfectly first.. nothing has been changed.

Does the disk actually contain anything?
Sounds like broken cable or connector though...

All these disks I have tested have contained something, and I tried with the same disks I was first able to successfully read when I took Kryoflux straight-out-of-the-box. I tried resetting the device and setting the flash jumper 'on', like the manual instructed.

I even re-installed whole windows 7, because it can do pretty much anything in my experience, but the problem persists.

I am doubting that despite trying to be extra careful and using anti-static mat provided with the product, I could have accidentally sent some destructive charge to the board?

No flux reversal literally means that the board hasn't received any read signal from the drive... which is not a good sign.

Yes.. but calibration is successful with 5'25 drive and 3'5 drive. Doesn't the calibration process require data from the device?
