Public Domain Disks archive

Recommended Posts

Recently I posted some public domain disks of Music Studio SNG files and whilst working on that I discovered that many of my disks no longer seem to read, Tonight I figured I should go through my public domain disks and archive what I can before none of them read. Disks are from BRE and PDC as well as a couple from Start Magazine.

 

After several hours of disk swapping amongst two STs and a Falcon, I was able to archive about 3/4 of the PD disks that I have. The other 1/4 refused to read in either of the STs, three different external drives, or the Falcon. I'll look at them again some other evening as my enthusiasm level has hit zero.

 

Here is a list of what is in the archive: (There is also the disk from Compute's 2nd Book of Atari ST included, but it is not complete because only 2/3 of the disk seemed to read)

Thanks for these :)

Have you tried my trans d-bug express program for imaging. This has a much better success rate than msa or fcopy.

I have not. I will have a look at it!

 

I hope you find something useful in what I was able to archive.

I used to get those disks in the mail all the time in the early 90's, thanks for the memories! I have one labeled "#1096 Samantha Fox Demo 2" from PDC. Still works if anyone wants it.

 

I also have "#142 House of the Rising Sun" which sadly is corrupted.
