WTB/LF: 701 series external floppy cable (FRU 04H6916)

#1 Post by NDCaesar » Mon Jul 02, 2012 5:54 pm

I bought a 701C two weeks ago. I have the 10H4056 external floppy drive now, but the cable that comes with it (P/N 46H8096, FRU P/N 74H0219) isn't compatible with the 701 series, and I can't find the correct cable (FRU 04H6916) or a drive that comes with it anywhere.

If anyone has this and would be willing to sell it, or can point me to somewhere else that has it for a reasonable price, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

[Edit: The 701 uses an unusual connector for the external floppy drive. It looks like a wider version of the connector on the 10H4056 floppy drive itself. The trapezoidal part is ~26mm wide and the same height as the one on the drive, with identical clips on either side.]
