3.5" floppy disks

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm starting to feel like 1200XL M.U.L.E.'s shadow here...

 

I have 3.5" floppy disks available for the cost of shipping. I weigh counted them at 564 disks but there are some more floating around. I have both 720KB and 1.44MB disk sizes. Some of them say 1.0MB or 2.0MB but I assume that is the unformatted size. Various densities are available as well. Most of them are IBM formatted. I cannot guarantee the software and games aren't corrupt. I also have boxes and labels if you need them.

 

Take as many or as few as you want, just pay shipping. These will be available until mid May when they go to the curb for Spring Cleanup.

 

Games (real disks not copies) include:

- Dragon Wars

- Lemmings w/ manual

- Quest for Glory II: Trial By Fire (9 disks)

 

Possibly useful software (real disks not copies) include:

- Windows 3.0 OS (7 disks)

- Windows 3.1 OS (6 disks)

- Microsoft Office Professional v4.3 (31 disks)

- Microsoft Office v4.0 (16 disks)

- Microsoft Access v1.1 (7 disks)

- PC Tools v6 (3 disks)

- Lotus Metro

- Prodigy v1.2

- Trident TV8900D VGA Driver

- Borland Superkey

- Quicken for Windows v1.01 (3 disks)

- Asymetrix Runtime Toolbook (2 disks)

 

 

Eventually I will have 5.25" floppies available as well but I am looking for a drive so I can create backups and format them before I give them away. Please let me know if you have one available.

Windows OS's, PC Tools, all games, all 720KB disks, and 50 or 100 (yet to be determined) 1.44MB disks are gone.

 

Still about 300+ 1.44MB disks and all Apple/Machintosh formatted disks are available.

Still plenty more available!

It doesn't look like you can receive PMs. How do you want to work this out?

looking for 720K disks, still have a pile?

Unfortunately no. Those were some of the first ones to go.
