MZ-80a disk options

So finally I have some drives/gotek that I can interface with my MZ-80b/2000 and they work great. My MZ-80A has the expansion box but no card. It feels left out and I want to bring it into the 'modern' age. What card will I need to look for? As far as booting, will it auto seek a floppy land put up ...

backing up MZ-80 Basic disk

Hello everyone. What is the easiest way to backup a system floppy to another disk? I tried Utility but it tells me 'Cannot Copy'. Does anyone have access to a good disk image I can use my my gotek to make backups to real floppies with?

Thanks!

MZ-80 A/B Screen cleaning

Hello. Just a quick question on the plastic screen filter on the MZ-80B and MZ-80A. How is that held in place? There is some debris behind mine and I want to clean it out. Rather than unscrew the CRT and go in that way has anyone removed the plastic screen filter to do it? Is it glued in? I was thin...

Finally

Managed to get a disk drive unit and got the Gotek working great with the standard MZ-80 Interface card.

In other news. Both the floppy drives do not read or write. I tried cleaning/lubricating but no luck. Any suggestions or is there a replacement drive you would recommend?

Did this sell? If you are the buyer and want to part with some of it please let me know. Looking for disk drives mainly. Or MZ-80B software/cards and a MZ-80a disk interface.
