    Personally, I would be a little uncomfortable using something that looked brand new, since I tend to wear things out.

    I think it is a good idea to ask around and see if anyone needs it for more...

    Looks like a set of Xerox 820 systems. A pair of 820 systems, what looks like an 820 8/16 on the bottom right. Not quite sure about the smaller unit sitting on top of that.

    No keyboards? :(

    The PCE emulator can also handle odd formats when using its .PSI sector image format. It is very good emulation but has some limits, such as timing.

    So it starts the moment the drive is powered up, even with nothing else connected and keeps going?

    What happens if you manually push the head away from track zero, then power it up? Does it return...

    If a Teledisk image has mixed sector sizes, the image may be either non-IBM PC or copy protected and extracting data from it may be pointless.

    That said, try the HxC software tool. It can load...

    That includes a TIPC specific version of Lotus 1-2-3 1A and Samnaword III. Those aren't just OEM copies, they are specifically adapted for the TIPC as it is not IBM PC hardware compatible. If anyone...

    I forgot that the II+ didn't ship with lower case. It was dead simple to drop in a different ROM so one could display lower case. I have a couple of II+ motherboards like that with lower case ROMs. ...

    Funny thing is I seem to recall running in to the same problem back in the 1990s.
