    Last year I gave files to 1ST1 that were hosted on a long-gone Olivetti server. They were mostly disk images packed into old self-extracting EXEs. Inside there are many EISA configuration files,...

    They are 3 1/2s and 5 1/4s. I live in an extremely humid place but for many years they were fine. Then they started to grow mold I suspect sometime in 2018 but I didn't understand what it was, I...

    Someone wrote something, but it seems the message was deleted. Yes disks are rarer than you'd think, especially the double-density kind. That said they are not "rare" yet but the problem is they are...

    Sorry Stone, that's too expensive because of shipping and the exchange rate.

    I heard that they stopped making disks sometime in the 2010's. That is so stupid. Believe it or not last time I checked...

    In the small installation guide it says to set the drive ID to 1 if used in conjunction with an ST-506 or ESDI drive. Maybe what it does not get along with is IDE.

    Can you tell me why the card has...

    My IBM PC 750 has a power supply from the same brand (API-3186S) and it makes the same sound. I have left it plugged in for years and it still works to this day, so I'd say it is harmless.

    M300-15 is a 386SX from 1992. It had a 20MHz brother called the M300-08, so if you find the disks for that one, they should work perfectly with it too.
