    Default WTB working 5.25 flloppy drive

    I'm looking for a 5.25 inch floppy drive for my MS-DOS system. I want to be able to play games from 1985-early 90s that were only on 5.25 disks.

    I kept one, when I got rid of all my others about a decade ago, but I suspect it probably doesn't work; I mean, it did, when I last used it 20 years ago and they built 'em to last, but...

    Yours, for the cost of shipping*, with again the caveat being it probably doesn't work.

    * Smallest USPS flat rate box if it'll fit, which is < $7.

    I have a couple 1.2 MB drives. They won't work with my TRS-80's so are surplus for me.

    Can a 1.2 mb drive read both 1.2mb and 360k disks?

    I've got a number of these that are available as well.

    Thank you,

    OP posting your location may reveal a member not far from you. I also have a few spare 5.25 but live in New Zealand.

    I've got several, NIB, new, and used.
    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3" or 5" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.
