    Wanted: Tandon TM 100-1A 5.25" drive

    Hello everyone, hope you're all doing well. I'm looking for a working Tandon TM 100-1A full-height drive to replace the B: drive in my early Kaypro II. I've been working on the machine on and off for around a year and I've finally decided that the drive in there isn't worth fixing. (It's got...

    What 5.25" floppy drive do you guys use to write disk?

    Hey guys, quick question. I have a early 2000's Dell Dimension 4500S that I'm planning on using to write Kaypro II disk images using this method from Tezza's site.

    5.25" Floppy Drive in a Modern Machine?

    As quite a few of you know, I'm probably going to be getting an IBM 5155 pretty soon. Instead of having to buy disks I want, I'd rather be able to download and burn images from my modern desktop. Blank disks are a little cheaper, if you know what I mean... :-) Is there any way to hook up a...

    Does anyone else think that there should be an app for the VC forums? I know I'd use it. Most of the time I access this site I'm on my phone, and using it with a mobile browser can be a real pain... What do you guys think?

    Has anyone else noticed this before?

    Hey guys, I was messing around with my //c today when I happened across something unusual in the Monitor ROM. At $FAB4, there's some sort of memory card test routine. It fails instantly with "?OVERFLOW ERROR" and says that the "1MB Memory Card" failed. This is obviously inaccurate, but has...
