    Well, there are serial to TCP/IP devices.

    I've been told that landline service obtained through a telephone company's fiber/DSL bridge should function with Modems and Fax. (although going through...

    Hmm. Some earlier 286 BIOSes did not have built in CMOS setup programs, but rather required one to run a setup program from floppy disk.

    It does seem weird that it would show you full-screen...

    If you really don't care about the data, sure you can just re-format. On a hard card I would go through the regular low-level, FDISK, and FORMAT routine.

    Worked for TI? Then there might be a chance there is some uncommon stuff mixed in there.

    You don't have to test stuff, but something shown working may increase interest.

    I've also seen a few instances where a disk was apparently formatted in a drive that is faulty somehow, but they manage to write the data to the disk OK in some other drive. Then those data tracks...

    I have no idea, but there are enough advantages you would think people would be lining up for it. But everyone is so hell bent on buying whatever the TV tells them to buy, they don't even want to...

    That looks like some very nice stuff. One would think that sort of stuff would get snatched up if for no other reason than to flip on eBeh. Have as many people still been getting out to estate sales...

    My ISP offers dial-up as sort of a backup. I even tested it the other day and it still worked.

    I don't even know what this is, but I like it. You can't have too many floppy drives!

    It seems like eBay is falling apart. Yesterday I kept getting "we looked everywhere" pages when opening item listings, they recently broke the ability to zoom in on a picture in all but the latest...

    This does not seem like a hardware failure. "Invalid media type reading drive C" generally suggests that the drive is being read OK, but it is finding something in the boot or partition area that it...

    If it is serial than any Microsoft serial mouse driver should work. Version 6 or later is generally recommended.

    You might want to try the mouse on a different computer to see if it works. Some...

    Very good to know. So, these Seagate SCSI drives do in fact fully implement the SCSI low level format command.

    That also means that if someone really needed or wanted a SCSI interface they could...

    Does FDISK report a partition filling the drive now?

    What happens when you high-level DOS format with "FORMAT /S"?

    Spoiler for anyone who doesn't want to watch a long video - it seems to work.

    I would still want to run some kind of pattern test after all of that to thoroughly test things.

    It makes sense...

    Having stopped Spinrite in the middle of interleave changes a number of times before, I can say that it should NOT have left the drive unbootable! The only difference would have been one part of the...

    I see someone just grabbed that Actor copy. I would be interested to know the result if that actually runs under Windows 2 or if it differers from what is out there. There is an Actor 3.1P archived...

    Atari ST used 3.5" floppy disks.

    Given that these disks have been write-notched for use as "flippies", I would guess these are not for IBM PC (very uncommon on PCs, and those required a second...

    If these are for Atari 400/800 then they could use either FM or MFM encoding. But the kicker is the tracks are NOT INDEX ALIGNED. That means, even if you have a PC controller that supports FM, one...

    My suspicion would be partially failed electronics that control the stepper motor. Ideally try swapping a different logic board, but if it is an odd revision you might need the same revision.
