Essentially, it's a standard PC floppy drive, which you can buy in any computer shop for peanuts.
I do know how to use a search engine :assskake: and found the same link and I read it to and a standard IBM drive wont do. It requires an older 720K drive which are not readily available

You can use a 1.44 drive - just not the 1.4 disks - you have to 'fake' them into thinking they're 720's by masking the hole.
For the sake of the minimal bucks/pounds/euros it's going to cost to try out a standard drive, I'd go for it and see what happens. The very worst outcome would be that you have a spare floppy drive for your computer .
