Looking for an Amiga 1010 external floppy drive. Just discovered my favorite game needs 2 drives to work.

Two drives to work? Or work well? Curious what you're playing...

FWIW, I am playing Ultima IV on my A1000 right now. It uses two disks, but only one to play (the other to boot the game).

The 1010 is a sexy drive. I may have a spare. I can look when I get home tonight.

It's Rocket Ranger. The box even said external drive required. Does not work on the a1000 or under emulation with a single drive. At least not properly.

Do you have an old Windows PC with internal floppy drive? This thing just showed up in my twitter feed.

Nice idea, but would like to get an actual amiga drive. Also, shipping to Canada and exchange rate make it fairly expensive.
