Floppy disk WANTED - Toshiba 1.4GB MK1403MAV Hard Disk Controller

Hi,
Does anyone have one of these spare as my pins have broken (Already tried to fix but not worked)
Drive spins up nicely so should work fine with new board

Even if you can find a board of exactly the same revision, the flash on the board usually has configuration tuning parameters specific to your drive, so swapping the board is highliy unlikely to work and may actually corrupt what is there.

You may be better off trying to solder the wires on a spare IDE cable directly onto the PCB in order to dump the contents of the disk?
