8 inch file transfer?

  1. acollins22
    Hi Folks,

    I have a Telefunken Telecom 5200 which is an 8080 machine made by Ontel in the USA in the late 70s, early 80s. This machine is not quite booting and I don't know if it's because it's broken or the 30 year old floppies have lost their Mojo.

    Does anyone know somewhere/one, preferably in the east Midlands who can read 8 inch floppies and could give them a sanity check?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd help you if I could but unfortunately nothing I have has an 8" FDD.

    Shame really. A double 8" Research Machines drive unit would go nicely with my other RM gear!

    Hopefully one of the others might be able to help you!

    Thanks Chris,

    I never used an 8 inch RML. By the time I got to one they had twin single density 5.25" drives. I wish I had one of those. I get a nostalgia kick each time I see one on ebay but other people have deeper pockets than me.
