The OEM Toshiba drive belt has been unavailable for a long time, so to
get this player running, I recommend installing a new motor pulley and a
round drive belt with parts available from SDP/SI. The pulley, drive
belt, and bore reducer will cost about $30 from that company. Detailed
installation instructions can be found at this URL: As an alternative, there is a $2 belt available from CED Magic, but I only recommend this to test the player to confirm the belt is the only problem before making the $30 investment in the above parts. This is because the $2 belt does operate the player, but its narrow width causes it to periodically fall off the OEM pulley. --Tom
