The Acorn AND01 100K Floppy Disc Drive is a single sided 40 track 5¼" drive. It is an Olivetti OPE FD501 which is the same disc drive used in the Atom Disc Pack. The serial number is 04-D01-006196. Acorn sold the disc interface and DFS separately from the disc drive.
Acorn also made the AND02 twin double sided 80 track 5¼" drive. These were the only floppy disc drives that Acorn produced for the BBC Micro, other suppliers rapidly started producing their own branded disc drives.
