I believe Dave G's MFM emulator has an option to support the SA1000.

I have one in stock for a future project to try to extract data from 
SA-1000's in DSD floppy / 8" drive subsystems.

info is there about the SA-1000.

If you are having problems because the drives are dead, this won't 
help.  It will inhale the contents and with
luck you can extract data.

I know with the ST-506 configuration of his hardware, you can then use 
the emulator to replace the SA-1000.

If you need to recover the data, you may be out of luck, but if you need 
a "working" SA-1000 and can format
it from utilities, then this may help.
