Anyone have a working 5.25" high density floppy drive on here? I've got some really rare GWBASIC games I'd love to check out again (they were the final projects for a university computer science class around 1987 and were never distributed, my dad brought a copy o them home for me when I was in grade school and I used to read through the source code in 5th and 6th grade and figure out how to add level systems and rude words, mostly the latter) but the only things I have that can access 5.25" stuff are a Commodore 64 and a couple of untested PC Jr's, and none of that is going to help me with DOS formatted high density disks. If you've got an old 286/386/486 with both a 5.25" and a 3.5" and want to copy some disks for me (3 or 4 tops -the games, plus the modified versions I made in 6th grade and some ZZT maps from 7th grade), and I've got the blank 3.5" disks too, and could even send you a spare internal IDE 3.5" drive on loan if you needed one), hit me up on the Google group please!
Maybe I could just ask this guy to do it and offer him one of the PC Jr's as payment for services rendered.
