    What do you mean? Would the drive spin up and then do nothing because of low power? One thing I have noticed is that it does not look like the drive is seeking after the computer POSTs. Now I am not...

    I wouldn't hold my breath. Most of the so called eBay (say 99%) "TESTED" listings are pure BS. They are listing them and rolling the dice it will work long enough for you for it to be out of the...

    Chuck,

    I never understood why the response is anything but that. My response is put it on eBay w/ no reserve starting at 0.99c. It will sell for what the market is willing to pay for it. This is...

    So I finally got my hands on a reasonably priced PA7225U Toshiba drive. This is basically a 360KB 5 1/4" drive in an external enclosure for power and connectors. The drive is connected to the...

    Trixter,

    Is there anyway to easily maintain a personal database? i.e. If I wanted to have a DB of my machines for my own use? I saw the switch for providing a different name for a DB file, but...

    Trixter,

    I want to clarify that the program crashed on 486 systems with genuine Intel 486 chips. It ran, inaccurately as you would expect, on the Pentium OD just fine. However, it could not...

    I am using VMWare to emulate a DOS 6.22 environment. I have created a boot disk and will run the test on a few machines tonight. I will get back to you with results ASAP.
  12. Trixter, How long is the CPU speed test...

    Trixter,

    How long is the CPU speed test supposed to take on a 486 emulation? I wanted to play with the program before placing it on a real system so I loded it up in VMWare under DOS 6.22. It...

    Well,

    I thought perhaps the sticky goo could be used to better hold on to the tubing. I will do a search for the Archive post and see. Thanks!

    Do you mind providing the ASIN of the palstibands you ordered? I have a number of tapes (including a number of original IBM 5100 tapes) that need replacement bands.

    Chuck,

    Are you removing the old capstan or are you sliding this over it?

    So sounds like snake oil i.e. he did not find or do anything that wasn't already being done. I am aware of the special formatting tools out there to get extra capacity out of floppies (my personal...

    So I was perusing some old freeware/shareware collections and ran across a program that promises access to a hidden 40K of space on 1.44MB drives. From the readme:

    Trixter,

    Trixter,

    Thank I guess I should have RTFM. Hmmm, I may have to rethink my workhorse system as the plan was for a std. 1.2MB and 1.44MB drive in there. I may just have to install a third floppy for...

    I am wondering if anyone has any info on processor speed limits for the Option Board (either Deluxe, or regular). I.E. can the card work in a PII system or is it limited to a 386/486 at...
