VG-8235 absolutely has a belt, and if it has never been replaced, it's now black gunk.

72mm belt (diameter) 2-2.5mm wide will work as a replacement. Make sure it's a flat belt !

And clean the spools/wheels, cause they'll be covered with the remains of the original belt. Yuk.

Das wird klappen !

That's why you have to undo the cable twist on a IBM floppy drive cable when using a PC disk drive on MSX

okay that´s very interesting. I thought it was the other way around. I´m gonna search for a normal cable in my PC stuff and give it a try.

In the meantime here´s a short video of what happens when i try to format a DD in the MSX (it´s not in the video but i waited about 15 minutes or so and nothing changed)

You could use a twisted cable IF you have a cable for 2 drives, so you just ignore the connector after the twist, and use the two connectors with no twist between. Anyway, I think 8Bits4Ever is doing MSX floppy interface cartridges compatible with PC cables and drives.
