Yes. I currently have 3 IBM PC drives running in the system. But I 
really was looking to restore it back to the original Heath (Siemens) 
drives if I could find any. I've noticed several TRS80 Model III on 
Ebay. They show 2 full height drives, but I don't know what kind they are.
Thanks for the response.

BTW - I'm currently working on a PC Program called H8WARE that emulates 
the H19 terminal, a serial printer, a File to File transfer system 
between H8 and PC, and tape emulation. I have part of it working now.
Also, I'm writing a PC program BIN2HEX to create INTEL HEX format files 
that can be transferred to H8 CP/M PIP. All the BIN2HEX programs that I 
have found on the net won't work with the CP/M LOAD command.
More later.
