got over 1000 floppys

Postby Marcer » Thu Oct 01, 2015 6:50 pm

Hey

Just to announce. I have recently bought 10 Posso Boxes with ST floppys. around 1000+ disks. I have started the image. and will add them to the ftp. And yes. rare stuff found among the 70 first disks!!

this will be a slow progress as I msa on falcon then transfer to pc by 1.44mb floppys as I dont have any of these "sd card mods".

ill after this update the gamedvd

That's really sad and I must say unreliable. You really should get some Flash card adapter. Wait ... you have Falcon. So need only 44 pin IDE-CF adapter and 1 CF card. That will cost you lot of money, especially considering "low" salaries in Sweden :mrgreen: Some 20 Euros total.
P.S. forget SD cards.Falcon and Compact Flash rule ! :D

Agree, Marcer, just do this :) Either a CF-adapter or (even though AtariZoll doesn't like them ;)) one of the extremely cheap IDE2SD adapters others have tried with the Falcon and know works. I even have one laying around that I got just because they're so dirt cheap:

I've got this pile of ST disk boxes (including the white ones) in my loft but probably won't have time to go through them 1 by 1.
I sold the original game disks, I keep the ST "pack" disks + language disks, the rest is games/midi/database/utils all sort of disks.

I'm not too keen on quick sale, can keep there for a little bit longer if that would benefit. What do you think?

OK, I'll create a new post when it is time (leave this thread to Marcer's stuff).
I don't have ftp to host these though.

Buy a PARCP USB from Petr Stehlik. It's perfect for this job.

I've just uploaded 68 images, the first row of Disk box 3.

Sometimes the labels say nothing and I can't check them all. I put a read me file there as well, but only have the serial for Nvdi3 in there, the disk however gave me read errors.

Marcer, on the floppies which have mould on them, and are actually making you unable to image them as it should, you need to open the disk, and use Cotton eye cleaner (not cotton bud, it's imprecise at best and it doesn't allow a correct clean up (some of the mould can't be see with the eye). Once cleaned with this method and IPA, you'll be able to image them at perfection.

It's a method i use on Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Amiga and PC (720kb i precise, on 1.44mb it doesn't work because it's too fragile and unreliable).

"over 150 images on the ftp now" How can I get access to the ftp sight?
