Vintage computer reviews, mods, floppy disks, tapes and roms.
Recently I have bought an Apple Macintosh Plus. Everything was working except one key on the keyboard. The previous owner just glued it permanently to disguise the damage. The key in question is the "Clear" key. It is not used very frequently, that is of course if you are not a heavy user of the Calculator Application. Nevertheless I wanted a fully functional keyboard, so I decided it to fix it.
To create single sided disks on a PC (Windows XP) we will need a floppy drive that is connected to the FDD controller. The tests that I have done with USB floppy drive failed. It simply did not want to recognize single sided (360K) formatted floppy disks.
I still had an old computer with a copy of Windows XP on it. And actually I am writing this blog on this computer inside Chrome browser, so I guess it is still usable.
MSX2 Philips NMS 8250 computer has a build-in double density (DD) floppy drive. There a various sites on the internet where you can download floppy disk images.
For example: www.planetemu.net You can browse MSX2 various disks section and "télécharger", as the site is in french language, and means "download".
