The FD-501 & 502 were a little under rated in that Radio Shack installed a
fan with the dual disk drive installations. It appears to be more of a
cooling issue than a part rating issue though. I have used CPU fans from
dead PCs instead of Radio Shack's can motor kludge.
In short, I have not seen a disk drive power supply fail from normal use. I
have even bypassed the transformer and plugged in to the truck's "12 volts"
without any problems.
