>> "we need working 10 meg cartridge system
>> can you help?"
I got an inquiry of this sort recently. The person obtained a IoMEGA
"Bernoulli" 10MB cartridge drive, previously for Apple/Macintosh use.
The Bernoulli carts are flexible disk media in a black plastic
cartridge. A predecessor of the IoMEGA 100MB/250MB ZIP carts and drives.
None of these are "hard disks" literally, as I said they are flexible
media. I have one of the 20MB drives and IBM PC ISA controllers and some
media, described on my Web site. My colleague Caudle shows a model too
in his post.
There also were, many hard-disk media small cartridge drives in the era.
But "10MB" suggests Bernoulli, unless it's Diablo/Pertec/etc.
minicomputer class disk-pack drives from the 1970's which is unlikely.
