    Default bulk DS/DD 3.5" disks

    I could of sworn someone where was selling used bulk floppy disks but they were 5.25" only. Was that you Chuck?
    I'm after about two dozen or so double density disks because I'm fed up with recycling floppies for a system. Don't care for labels, brand or sleeve color. They just need to format okay.

    I was giving them away for shipping. I probably can scrounge a couple dozen yet, but may ask for a donation for formatting and verifying. I still have a few hundred NOS ones.

    Are you talking about 3.5" or 5.25" ? I have a shortage of DD 3.5" myself

    Can you do....36 disks? I'll save you having to format them all and just hope there's enough extras to fulfill what I need if that works for you.

    3.5" DSDD to be accurate.

    Let me look around and see what I've got, if you don't mind used disks.

    They're hard enough to get these days. Used is fine.

    I have a few hundred new (NOS) 3M DSDD 3.5" floppies, would be willing to sell some. They are 720KB IBM factory formatted.

    I've had good luck with floppydisk.com ... I see they have a 50 pack for $19.99. I picked up a stash of disks from them a while back.
