  1. I've been on this site, most of the disks seem to be in a .zip format which then lists the files included once you unpack it. How do you take those files, and create a disk image that can be placed on the disk via winimager? Also as far as the compact flash option, is there an online tutorial anywhere to install the device into the Tandy? That looks like an option that I would like to explore as well. Thanks!
  2. Hi! My name is Greg. New to the forum. Finally getting around to posting on here. I have been collecting retro computers and consoles for a number of years now, but have yet to really participate in forums. Currently I own an Amiga 600, TI 99/4A, Atari 800XL, and now new to the stable is a Tandy 1000 EX. It was obtained second hand for $5. I spent this afternoon taking the machine apart and cleaning; as well as inspecting the hardware. The computer is all clean now and boots to a prompt for a bootable discs. Herein lies the issue... I have no discs! I don't really have a way of imaging discs for 5.25 drives at this time unfortunately. After some research, I found that I will require MS-DOS 2.11 to be able to boot this machine to run software. Here are my questions. 1. Does anyone have a copy of MS-DOS 2.11 or has the means to copy a disc for me that could be mailed? 2. What is the easiest way to image these discs nowadays? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. If you can send me a copy that would be great. I would paypal for the copy of the disc and to cover shipping.
  3. Hey guys, So I picked up a 5200 from the local flea market for $10 bucks this weekend. I knew I was getting into a project when they said it was not working, but I figured what the hell. Anyway, I was missing a switch box, so I cooked up a quick one. Still no power to the console. I then checked the wire, came apart (held by duck tape) Then I re-soldered the plug onto the wire from the console. Plugged it back in nothing. Ripped the board out, looks like there was water damage and some corrosion. SO... 1. Can I restore this board by scrubbing off corrosion and re-flowing solder? 2. Can I solder the power directly to the board? 3. Can I directly solder on S-Video and RCA? Any tips will help. (Will attach photos) Thanks!
