I want to take apart my 1GB microdrive. It has three point screws, rather than the standard philip heads. Anyone know where to get a 3 pointed micro screwdriver.

The screw looks like this . . .

I don't really want to disassemble the entire Microdrive. I really just want to get to the circuit board and examine it. From the following exploded view, it looks like the circuit board is on top of the drive and the platter starts from the bottom. Anyone know if the circuit board exposes the platter?

Did you ever find one?
I am also looking for one.

Ok, I found the answer to whether taking off the circuit board exposes the platter. See this excerpt:
"To get a look on the PCB remove carefully the Sticker on the Side of the MD !!without!! the "breath hole", there you can see 5 screews, after removing the screews you have the PCB in your hand and the diskdrive by itself is still vacuum sealed. Now take your multi and find the right resistor. On my first test i removed a wrong one and my MD died. So I cant find the right one anymore... Good Luck!" - Kopf2k on studio2f: Size matters

Title: Microdrive Disassembly Post
Excerpt: Chieh: I saw your post while searching today and was curious about a couple of things... 1) Did you ever successfully get the microdrive apart? If so, I would guess that removing those 3-pointed screws did NOT expose the actual platter and just showed you the circuit board. 2) I bought a US . . .
