I just bought a 835 from EBAY

Recommended Posts

I just bought a non-working 835 modem from eBay and it came with 7 floppies.

One half of the set says DD at the top and my 1050 can't read them.  All say

BBSC Construction Set, or Docs, or Samples.  Also half are marked 835 and the

others are marked Smartmodem.  Anyway the ones I can boot say:

 

                      Antic Software

BB Construction Set Ver. 2.2 by Scott Brause

 

The one for the 835 has AMODEM 42, and TSCOPE, and DLINK

 

Anyway, does anyone have any use for these Disks?  If so I'll put Zipped versions

out there (I just need to know where would be best).

certainly a good idea, never know what you will find... a couple people are playing around with BBCS as we speak so your timing is perfect.

if you wish I've got Double Density drive both single sided and double sided to read the disks if you wish I could do it for you.

 

Do you have an idea why the modem isn't happy?

 

You could modify the topic and say I just bought an 835 w/ BBCS off ebay...

and put the dumps right here.

The modem had a bad TMS99532NL 300 baud modem chip in it.  When I replaced it with my know good one it blew that one too.

When I get a chance I'm going to start checking voltage first.  In the mean time I've ordered 22 from UT Source for 72 cents each.

Doc, can I send you all eight disks to look at?  I've got more people coming next week to work on replacing some cabinets we have

discovered have mold on the bottom of them.  And to top things off,  my middle finger on my right hand has developed 'trigger

finger'.  I didn't know it could make your hole hand hurt all the way to the wrist, and prevent it from closing tightly.

Of course I'll help out. I'll clean and extract from the disks all that I can.

Thank you Doc.  I'll try and get them in the mail Monday or Tuesday at the latest.
