I don't mean to chastise you, but you obviously didn't look at those
NONE of them have the drives, and one even states it is a discontinued
In fact, I tried to order one and they couldn't give me a delivery date
or even complete the sale.
This is exactly the issue as Mrsray laid out!
So... now I am curious as to the story behind these drives...
Can anyone find an actual dealer that has any? Did the government buy
all of them? Or, did the technology fail dramatically?
Everyone loves a good mystery...

Thanks for your advice Geoff ...
I guess I should have added in, my job info ... I am an IT
I buy IT items all day every day. I have connections with
people that get me hard to find drives and sales reps that
work for me from places like dell and cdw. I am not just joe
shmoe coming off the street asking for these drives. I would
think if any of my connections could get them for me they
would since I know them well and do a lot of business with
them all the time. That is what makes this really wierd for
me. Especially when I read these posts in this forum, which
all made it sound so easy to find those drives. So, long
story short, I have dealt with small independent shops that
have techdata accounts and still no luck.
IF ANYONE HAS BOUGHT an FDE.2, please let me know.-
Well, as always, the place to search is Google:
