Tempest Posted September 17, 2009 Share Posted September 17, 2009 I've had several people now tell me to clean the heads on my Atari 810 drives as they might be dirty. My question is Exactly where is the 'head'? Also, what's the best way to do this? I took a q-tip dripped in alcohol and rubbed it on the white plastic circular object that clamps down on top of the disk, and also on the black circular object on the bottom that the other side of the disk sits on. I assume these are the two things that you have to clean since those are the only things that seem to touch the disk? I didn't see any dirt come off so I'm not sure if they're just not dirty or I'm just not doing this right. Interestingly I read something from Atari that said NOT to use cleaning disks. Why would this be? Tempest Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
