Step 5: Modify the Floppy Disc

I used an old floppy disc to construct a snoot that the film will flow through. 

1.  Pry apart a floppy disc and discard the magnetic media and shutter.

2.  Cut out a rectangle of plastic that is slightly wider than the film.  Be sure to include the friction reducing material as it will help the film flow through easier.

3.  Tape together the two peices.

4.  Insert the snoot into the modified film container and tape it in place.

I found my Polaroid I-zone camera and I ordered the film from Amazon and the film is expired .What do I do?
<p>OMG please tell me you have more empty cartridges for the poor likes of me?! I just found my old iZone camera! email me at smadaakkire at gmail dot com</p>
<p>Any projects available for i-zone 200?</p>
if i don't have a Empty I-Zone film cartridge what can i use?
An empty one is the preferred method. I have plenty. I can send you one if you e-mail me your address.
<p>Hi, can you send me some film however I'm here in the Philippines... contact me at michaele.angellite.hovermale@gmail.com</p>
<p>I know this is a long shot... but you don't happen to have any cartiges left?</p>
<p>Yes, still have some. Dead iZone film still inside. If you send me your address, I can send via mail. Cheers</p>
<p>Hi can you send me one too?</p>
<p>Probably, just e-mail me your mailing address!</p>
Hello, i was wondering what email to send my address to?
<p>Hi, do you have film for this camera? Or did I misunderstand you guys? </p>
I'm too far in Mexico, I'm gonna try with a plastic little box, what do you think?
<p>Do you still have any film left? That would be so majestic! Thanks :)</p>
hello i was wondering what you email was?
Hey! Could you whip up a vid on how to do this? Thanks
I know this post was a while ago, but is it possible that you have 1 more empty cartridge to send to me?
Confused! Theres no sub for this film but you are chatting about using APS for it? Excited at the prospect that I could use this izone again. Any chance i could be run through exactly the process? Thanks
I've tried my best to document the process here in this instructable. APS film however is on its way out. Production was stopped in 2011. I've been kicking around the idea of modifying the iZone for 35mm film or at least being able to slit 35mm unperf film down to that size.<br><br>Anyway, if you need any help with your project, let me know. I'd be more than willing to help.
I could use one of those empty cartridges if you wouldn't mind sending me one! Where can I email you my address?
Finally, I can make my i-Zone useful again. I recently found it in my attic, dismayed at the golden-brown film I had left over. Thankfully, I kept an empty cartridge. As soon as I get some APS film, I'll try this.
It is a lot of fun. Make sure when you get your film processed, you tell them to develop only. Or not, their computer will have a tough time figuring out where the images are though. I just scan at home where a human is in charge.
Right, gotcha. I have a nice flatbed and was considering just scanning my negatives. Whenever I bring a 35mm roll from my Holga to get developed, I ask for a CD and it's always incompatible with my computer (always works on all the others...). Just getting the negatives would be cheaper and easier I guess.<br><br>Anyway, I've got some APS to find. I've never actually heard of it until recently, as I'm delving into film photography. Still gotta find an empty 124 cartridge for my Instamatic 104 for the 35mm conversion.
I had one of these, but when I ran out of film (and realized that there wasn't much I could do with postage-stamp sized photos) I just scrapped it for the flash circuitry. Great to see one put to good use. :-) Nice work!
