Hi all,

Somehow I lost my 1.2M floppy drive for my AT bridgeboard. Looking to revive this setup just to see the blinking DOS prompt, anybody have a spare drive lying around?

Regards,
Rutger

Which bridgeboard? I thought the A2286 bridgeboard normally used a DD drive? The disks that come with the A2286 are DD as well.

Hi!

I have both an A2088 and a A2386SX, would be happy with either a 360k or 1200k drive... It's not that critical ;-)

A2088XT came with Chinon FZ-502 DD-Floppy
A2286 came with Chinon FZ-506 HD-Floppy

Just checked the specifications of the two and you are indeed correct. While a 1.2MB drive would be more versatile as it can read both DD and HD, I guess it cannot work with the A2088 at all even if you intend on only using 360kB disks?

That's right, the A2088XT need a DD drive AND a non-drilled Floppy cable!
