70 DSHD 5.25 floppy disks

Recommended Posts

Selling a large batch of double-sided HIGH DENSITY floppy disks. Not sure about the c64 or the Atari 8-bits, but these will not work for the Apple II. (They're not double density)

Coincidentally, I saw a video yesterday where someone successfully formatted and used HD disks on his C128D (built-in 1571) while the same disks would fail completely on a 1541. Possibly other double sided DD drives from the mid-late 1980's and onwards actually can use these, though one can't be sure about data integrity, whether the files you stored will remain for hours, days, weeks, months or years. Probably best to use such disks with HD drives after all, though interesting to experiment.

No they will not work in an Atari 8-Bit drive.

Pretty much only IBM PC's used HD 5.25" floppies. Ataris, Apples and Commodores all want DD or SD (actually I'm not even entirely sure about SD; I only ever used DD disks).
