NO NO !!!

If you cut the metal bit out of the middle, you can put them in your DVD drive

Chucked about 500 of these in the skip last year.

Great! I've just updated my cassette player with a floppy disk drive to use with my ZX Spectrum.

Bargain, cheers OP. I still use these

I remember when Windows 95 came out. I thought it was called that because that's roughly how many floppy disks it came on.

Why did you still own 500 of these last year. Do you run some kind of old school technology museum or something

I've still got 500 in the loft.
I know because I copied them ALL to one CD years ago!
I was planning to make lots of little Starship Enterprises out of them

Just ordered some. Still use them to do BIOS flashes, add drivers to win 2000 2003 server installs etc. Yes we do still use em! One day they will die.

Got them in a boc once and as I have lived in this house sometime now they was in the loft when it got cleared out

5.25 or 3.5??

Ahh.. floppies, those were the days :). Anyone still remembers cutting a notch on the opposite side of the 5.25 for double density disks?? I know, I know... I need to get out more

Oh! A bit of heat to warm your floppy deal up :p.

Still in use in my line of work

It would be very cheap for the 5.25' ones. The going rate for those is about a quid each.

I remember using the 8 inch drives - mind you I also remember altering a program where the test data was supplied on punched cards.
3.5 inch drives? - new fangled nonsense that will never catch on.

That picture had me in tears, I honestly hadn't seen that particular motivational poster before!

The 3.5 Floppy still has its uses. Obviously there are those that collect and use old computers, they still have there uses in music production, midi sequencing..until just a few years ago Yamaha had 3.5" disk drives in keyboards which are still in use on the second hand market.

Still used on older servers for importing bios files and firmware etc. Spectrums use CF2

(think you meant 5.25" - what you said would be massive)

I remember using the 8 inch drives



If people are just gonna start boasting about whose is the biggest floppy...

Wow thats 2p cheaper than I use to pay at Escom 15 years ago, or you could go to a car boot and get them for 1p each.

WTF...

Agree these are pretty useful (when compared to my Sony minidiscs).

Escom, such a dirty word, trashed what was left of the Amiga brand attempting to sell them from old Rumbelows stores.

It's not true what they say - size does matter...

Don't scoff at these floppies. This is a best brand new floppy. Lots of places still use old technology. E.g. pharmaceutical lab work requires 10 to 20 years of product control. A lot of computers were certified together with other pharma equipment as complete systems to perform certain specialised roles. There are still ones which run DOS and Windows 3.1! These systems cannot be changed as they are certified as a whole. So they can be repaired only with same parts, a floppy drive with a floppy drive. It would not surprise me if the armed forces still use floppies for some equipment from the 1980's.

ahh 120mb floppies.

Hmmmmmm, ordered 2 packs of these on 24th, arrived today (26th).
Also on 24th was a debit card transaction by APPLEGREENCD for £50.96 which is nothing to do with me.
Mr Morgan, something is awry.

Apologies, strike that, just found out what it was.

I still have floppy drive in my pc and some flopys, the main floppy is the one with windows statup files.

Fdisk etc were very useful to sort hard drive that got corrupted or something.

in 90s the mags used to come with floppys as well.

Aol used to send floppies out with their internet signup etc, i used to erase and reuse them lolz.
