Can someone help me with 5.25" floppies?

Post by Alex »

So I have plenty of 3.5" floppy drives (and disks) but I just got my first (working) 5.25" floppy drive. I have some old original game disks but lack "test" floppies that I know are good.

I'm looking for someone to do a 360 K (with a 360 K only drive) and a 1.2 MB test floppy for me. Of course I would pay for the floppies, shipping and time! If you can help me post here of PM me. Thanks a lot!

The best test floppies you can get are those from original games with a sealed write notch! They are written with the best regularly serviced professional equipment.

I guess you already have plenty of them in your boxes....

Yeah I understand but normally I don't test new drives with good/original floppies at first. If anyone have something that would sell to me (especailly a 1.2 MB floppy) let me know.
