What size belt do I need for the Hitachi-LG drives?
I purchased this console with the intention of modifying it (yes, I have a pair but the person who hooked me up passed. Yeah, I'm not going to do it anymore — they stay intact). However I'm torn now, knowing it's looking like a promising unit.
The unit came with the cables (and a copy of GTA SA, with the parents preferred method to dealing with ownership disputes — permanent marker, ugh. Because you know, being a real parent is hard compared to potentially FUBARing a copy of GTA :/. Annoying, but not worth my time at $8-10 unmarked disc only). When I took a look at the unit, I found my unit has the freaking Hitachi drive in it :-) - possibly a 1.6 board. It's not too shabby just based on the drive alone, especially since I know what the “GDR” drive goes for on its own outside of a console. The drive is behaving like every other GDR — the laser is absolutely borderline bulletproof, but the belts fail.
Is there a specific size belt I need to get, or can I use one of the generic lots everyone sells in packs of 5?
Is this a good question?
