Ebay. Japanese sellers. That's your best bet.

And shops here on lddb.
I think there was some type of craigslist in the UK but can't remember what its called.

Maybe even trunk sales, or is it boot sales where you are?

Somehow I doubt there's a lot of VHDs in flea markets in the UK!

Well you are right, that's what happens when I read the post fast.
Ebay and YJ are pretty much your only bets.

There are some listed under LDs and they are around 20-30 each.

they don't list that much but you should check a lot on eBay but YJ should have more. I had to buy my discs from YJ using a proxy when I bought both my players.

One benefit here is that international shipping from Japan is still quite reasonable. And since you have to pay customs for them anyway, there's really no downside to buying them from there instead of North America.

Your best bet would be to measure the old belt or use a piece of string and then measure that.
I doubt anybody can help with these players anymore, they are just too obscure and way to limited to just Japan but very cool indeed.
