Pavilion 7055 floppy drive

By MCiha ·
Ok, I'm still learning my way around here. I had posted this in "Discussion Center:" before I realized this existed...
What recourse is there in trying to find a floppy drive for an HP Pavilion 7055 (D3876A) when HP says they don't have them anymore?
The part# on the drive is 5182-5536, It says it is an Espon SMD-1340.
I know that mechanically any floppy drive will work in this machine. My problem is getting the eject button and the drive in general to line up with HP's bezel.

You can order an Epson SMD-130 online. This company prices it at $99.

http://www.baber.com/baber/products/floppy.htm

Go there and then click on ordering information.

It's the only online site a found that offers it (just did a quick search).

I'm a liitle bit familiar with the eject button problems with hp. You may have to try and use parts from your existing drive and tranfer them to the new one.

Is the problem not the floppy drive (you can find them just about anywhere ($12 at Fryes electronics) but the cosmetics of fitting the floppy drive into the drive bay and snapping HP face plate back on? You may have to go with an option that is notas pretty, and just use the standard flat plate. If it won't work for the 3-1/2" drive bay, (for instance, if the entire front of the computer would need to be removed) you could put the floppy drive into one of the large drive bays. There are standard rails and face plates available, to adapt the floppy to this bay.

Hope this helps.
