INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the SHARP Floppy Disk MZ-80FB/FBK. It is a peripheral for use with the
SHARP Personal Computer MZ-80B which can operate a maximum of 4 drives. We believe that it
will be very useful as an external memory unit because of its large capacity and high speed access.
Read this instruction manual carefully before using the Floppy Disk so you can use it correctly.

1 Diskette
This unit uses a 5.25" mini-disk that records on both sides
as the recording medium. Its external appearance is as
shown on the left. It's called a diskette and is a magnetic
sheet covered by a jacket.

2 Inserting a Diskette
1. Put a finger on the bottom of the front door and lightly
pull this door toward you to open it.
2. With the label side up and the head window forward,
insert a diskette in the slot. There is no other way to
insert a diskette correctly.
3. Push the diskette lightly until it stops and close the
front door. If the diskette is not inserted all the way,
the front door will not close. When this happens do not
force the door closed but re-insert the diskette correctly.
Diskette with write-protection.
~,
~ ........ Protection seal.
3 Write-protection Notch
If the write-protection notch of the diskette is covered
with a seal of silver paper, etc., writing of data is
forbidden. Reading, however, is possible. Some diskettes
supplied by Sharp that are called Masters have this part
covered with a seal. Never remove it because it prevents
trouble from improper operation.
Do not cover the notch of diskette that is ordinarily used
for read/write operations with a seal, etc. or writing will be
impossible.
a
4 Data Read/Write
Operation of this unit is only by ON/OFF of the power
and insertion/removal of a diskette.
All reading and
writing of data is controlled by the host system MZ-80B.
For details refer to the software manual. A maximum of 4
drives can be operated and drives are designated by the
drive numbers on the front of the unit.
6
Do not touch, soil or scratch the recording surface (Head
YVindow) of the diskette with your finger. This may cause
improper operation or result in no operation.
Do not bend or fold the diskette or it will become unusable.
Do not bring magnetic things near the diskette or the
contents of the diskette will be destroyed. In addition, it's
dangerous to bring a diskette near machines (motors, etc.)
that generate a magnetic field.
Fill in the index label before pasting it on the jacket or use a
soft pointed pen. If you use a ball-point pen or other hard
object on a label already pasted on the jacket, the diskette
will be damaged.
When not using a diskette, put it in an envelope and file it
away. This also prevents trouble caused by scratches and
dust.
~
Envelope
Storage temperature of the diskette is 4° C -50° C. Do not
put it in direct sunlight or anywhere the temperature rises
above 50°C. The jacket will be deformed and the diskette
will be unusable.

Cautions
(A) Installation
1. Do not install the unit in the following places.
Damp places.
In direct sunlight.
Dusty places.
Places where the temperature is very high or low.
Places that vibrate.
2. Install the unit on a solid, level stand.
3. Use a power supply voltage as indicated on the rating name plate on the back of the unit.
4. Do not install the unit near machines that generate a lot of noise. Also use a separate power
source for these kinds of machines. This will prevent improper operation due to noise.
5. Do not close the ventilation holes of the unit by putting things on top of it or by covering it
with a cloth, etc.
6. Use only the supplied power cord.
(8) Operation
1. Do not use the unit in ways not written in the instruction manual.
2. When operating this unit, be sure that all signal cable and other connections are right.

3. I mmediately pull out the power cord if water or liquid or metal objects, such as needles and
pins, mistakenly get into the unit. Then, completely remove these foreign objects.
