greetings to all!
I have a simple question I believe although it has been quite difficult to find the solution.
Several years back, after cd drives and burners failed (I save everything to experiment with later), I decided to open a drive up and the problem was simply a broken belt. Turns out 90% of of my failed drives had broken belts. SO, I started swapping belts from failed drives with unknown problems and Voila! Working drives. Turns out it was the same problem on some failed VCR's and DVD players.
When I ran out of belts, I used small rubber bands, which didn't last very long, but were a temporary fix. My question is this. Does anyone know of a supply house where one could purchase an assortment of belts for CD/DVD/VCR's?
I have searched and searched to no avail. I have found belts for no particular drive @ 10 for $1, etc. I would just like to buy, perhaps, 100 or so various sized belts to keep my own stuff running as well as those of friends and family.
Any help greatly appreciated!
