The Amstrad PCW8256 Wordprocessor Computer uses 3 inch disks (not 3.5").

This system worked the last time I powered it on (earlier 2000's) but apparently the drive belt has finally gone bad. Here is a link for repair information. I *guess* I will replace the belt if I can get one cheaply enough. As always there is always someone selling parts on Ebay...
