    MO Disk Drives

    I was reading the wikipedia article on MO Disks, and was wondering where to buy one from? Scan don't sell them, ebuyer sell the disks but not the drives - it's a bit of a pain in the arse. I mean they're not in that widespread usage as I understand it, but does anyone know where I can get one (a drive) from?

    eBay would be your best bet. Anywhere else (online shops or whatever) are likely to bleed you dry for them because they think you're a business.

    Why would you want one anyway? Magnets just don't get me hard these days...

    I was just interested in them is all - see how they compare to floppies. Well I guess I should just read about them and leave it.

    Whoa that's pretty expensive. I found (on amazon) an internal MO drive. Can't remember how much it cost though.
