Commodore/Amiga Disk Drives


cbm/amidrives/a1010.gif Not much to say here. Although not known for the same reliability as previous models, these drives all kept Commodore up to date in removable storage technology.

The Amiga 1010 was introduced with the original Amiga 1000 as a second drive option. It contained a Matsushita drive mechanism and a pass-through port allowing the user to chain other drives or floppy port peripherals.

The 1011 came along later with a sleek new look and lacking the 1010's pass-through port. It also contained a custom-wired Chinon 354 mechanism unlike the 1010. However, it did utilize the same 23 pin Amiga floppy port.

The 1411 is an rarer and more interesting device. It is otherwise identical to the 1011 except for the black casing, which made it a match for the Commodore CDTV, for which is was intended.
