Re: Floppy disc images


It is good policy to keep old hardware for reading old media. In my case, my old DOS machine died some time ago (a battery-related failure that proved unrecoverable), and I managed to find a computer that I had saved that could run Win 2000 in order to attach it to the network and had ISA card slots for legacy cards. I moved my old hard disk and floppies to it, and I am a happy camper now.

I have an old tower rig in storage that has two internal FDDs, covering both floppy types.  I was
going to disassemble it and
give most of it to electronic recycling.  But the system still booted up when last I tested it a
year or so ago, and it does have
controller support for a now mostly gone type of HDD.  So maybe I'll just hold onto it ?
