    Post Moving media to a 5.25 or 8 disc

    Does anybody have the capability to move files to either an RX01 single sided 8 or standard ibm floppy disc? I have the files to email, and can get the disks if need be.

    Are you talking about image files? I'm sure that just about anyone with a capable controller and drive can do it.

    As long as it is not too big for the diskette, any pc with a 5.25 or 8" floppy drive can do it. You should be able to find someone locally, even.
    My Packard Bell has never given me any problems which were it's fault, the Packard Haters can stuff it! :

    Not quite any PC since the RX01 is a single density 8" format.

    Um, silly question. What file system (and what hardware platform)? FILES-11, OS/8, TSS/8 or something else non-DEC?

    Well, the posting was made almost a month ago with no further communication, so it's probably safe to assume that the OP has solved his problem.
