    It probably doesn't support LBA translation. Using a newer drive might actually work better, but it's hit or miss. I tried a few IDE drives on my IBM 5170 before I found a drive that was happy to...

    Did you update your address? I just bought like half a dozen things from them, they have St412 style MFM cables too, and I think shipping was like $7.45, which I'm guessing is a flat rate box.

    Yeah, a better idea might be to build your own adapter with name brand plugs and receptacles from the hardware store, at least that way you know if you got good components or not. I've not had any...

    I think that's just because you gave the impression that they were unusual. I don't think people are trying to be rude or anything, I know I wasn't when I commented, it's just that most of us that...

    Things may have been a little different in the US. I remember when large, flat TVs came out, it seemed that plasma was all you could get. LCD seemed way more expensive, when it finally appeared. I...

    Sounds like you just need to go on vacation there and check it. If it weighs 36lbs, you aren't over weight. It looks like 24x24x18 would be 66inches and would be considered oversize, so you'd need...

    Sure, most early 15Ē LCD were 1024x768, but they are 15Ē. Iíve got a super cheap no-name one that I got for free years ago that I like to use for testing vintage computer and setting up modern...

    I’ve got an old lsi/netapp array that was storage behind a NAS cluster. It’s new enough to have SAS drives in it, instead of FC, and it was free to me when it went out of support. It’s loud and not...

    It seems that the computer world is always trying to push upon us tech with serious design defects, and they just expect us to ignore them in favor of some sort of perceived benefit. LCD contrast is...

    One potential use for having a few GB of local space on a 5150 or 5160 would be for storing disk images, assuming that you don't have a network card in it to access them from another system. ...

    I formatted it again to get back the extra 25% space I lost by telling the controller it only had 615 cylinders. :)

    So everyone was right. No smoke and it did spin both drives.

    What is everyone’s experience with spinrite?

    I put the first drive in, I think it’s new, but it had been opened before I got it. ...

    I’m with you. If I were using a single sided drive, I’d assume it was because I was trying to go for some period correct setup of some sort, so DOS 6.22 is over a decade out of place.

    The issue they’re having with 6.22 is that the system files won’t fit when he formats a single sided floppy. It’s because of the mostly useless drvspace.bin

    DOS 6.22 is wasteful when doing format /s. It always tries to stick drvspace.bin on there, just in case youíve compressed your HDD. If you do a dir /a youíll see it. Iím not sure if there is an easy...

    googling suggests that maybe there is an update option built into your current bios that you can choose and it will read the flash.ast file from your floppy. I'm not speaking from actual experience...

    Yes. I’ve used an XT-IDE in my XT with the stock controller. The XT-IDE defaults to something other than the normal C800, so there is no conflict there. I’ve not tested it in my AT yet.
