I just received a 8245 with a broken diskdrive. At first I thought it was the drive belt; but the drive reacts strange. At boot up it gives a short rattling sound. But when I type "files" in basic it makes no sound at all; it just says "Disk offline".

I also have a 8235 with a broken belt, and that one makes a much longer rattling sound at boot up, and also makes a lot of noise when I type "files".

Anyone have any thoughts on this ?

I opened it up, and the drive belt was broken; but also the connector to the drive was not plugged in very wel. So I think this thing will be fixable!
