Still have lots of 5.25 discs for my old Ohio Scientific C1P 6502 machine and that machine itself as well as an home built clone of an other Ohio Scientific computer both with MS basic 1977c in ROM the original ROM had a memory leak in the string garbage collection routine Laughing only had to change one instruction(byte) for the new EPROM for the fix.

Enjoy the Choice Smile

I even have about thirty 3" floppies from a 1980's Amstrad.


I still have an Amstrad 6128 with a 3" drive and 3" second drive and the software to copy to MSDOS disks. So, if you think there is anything you want copied off them, I can do it.

The oldest document I have was written to an 8" floppy 30 years ago, copied to a 5" floppy, then copied via a network consisting of a Mac, IBM and PCW (so that people at work could exchange documents between their different home computers) to a 3" disk, and then copied via a 3" Amstrad disk, a 3" MSDOS disk and a DVD to my current Linux computer.

Its format journey has been WordStar->WordPerfect->ODT->TXT->LyX.
