Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially and to my understanding, a new Double Density 720K floppy disk drive is no longer readily available; sorry.

However, this drive has a known /common failure point and the replacement part in most instances is still available.

Would the above information serve your need please?

Additionally, there is now a possible digital substitute that emulates the FDD. Would this also be of interest?
