MF2DD Disks for 520 STFM

Post by niqk »

I usually remake the game images onto disks and play them on my old machine (it feels a lot better, you know) but i have a problem obtaining Low Density disks. Have tried shopping for them, but no one carries these disks anymore! Does anyone know of a place where i can get MF2DD disks (in bulk) for a good price? Thx :)

You can put an little band of adhesive tape to hide the corner not used by floppy disks HD (the one that is not of use to the protection in writing of the floppy disk) and transfer your images discs on your PC (via makedisk.exe for example) to use them on your Atari ST.
Normally you can use a floppy disk HD on your Atari St and format it in 720 Kb. But everything depends on the age of your machine and the version of TOS.

I agree with Zorro 2! But if your problems persists you could do worse than trying this :)

HD disks usually don't work on machines like Atari or Amiga. You can get new DD disks on Ebay (http://www.ebay.com) but they have commodore logo.
