    Floppy pr0n

    Look what arrived for me the other day...






    Its a Teac FD-55A in a case to make a BBC AND-01 external disk drive for the BBC computer.

    Looks nice. It is in pristine cosmetic condition.

    It is a 40 track, single sided, double density drive, so gives 100 kilobytes on a BBC.

    Mmm, I wonder what I could do with all that space.

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get it to work properly. It doesn't seem to attempt to read the disks. Not sure whether the floppy drive is at fault or the BBC's disk controller. If it is the drive, hopefully it will be repairable. If not, I suppose it will make a nice ornament.

    Shame you can't get it to work. Fingers crossed it is something simple. Definitely has a nice retro look and solid construction about it though.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
