I found a Fujitsu Lifebook 280Dx in mint condition at a thrift store. There isn’t a scratch on it. I snatched it up. I thought it would be a great DOS-era retro gaming machine. However, I am having an issue with using it. While it did have the modular 3.5″ floppy and Zip drive installed, it did not come with the battery(s) or the CD-ROM drive. I would really like to get my hands on the CD-ROM drive. However, I checked eBay and nothing. Someone told me about Yahoo Auctions in Japan and nada. I know finding parts for a 25-year-old laptop is a long shot, but I’d like to try.
Where else can I look to find these hard-to-find parts?
