I usually clean all my drives heads before use it but the original Citizen
drives have problems with the BELT.

No, that's an unfortunate omission from the manual. Drive belt has been
mentioned, but it can also be something fishy with the power supply, e.g. not
delivering enough voltage to the drive. In very rare cases it can also be the
disk presence switch which is faulty. But before you start opening up too much
- are you sure you are using the correct bay? On SAM Coupé drive 1 is in the
left bay, while on SAM Elite drive 1 is in the right bay.
