i want to get some 5.25" DSDD floppies suitable for use on an Apple2.

ebay seem to be rather more than my pocket money allows and ive missed a few bids. I have 2 spare disks presently but they dont format so dunno if the drive yet or the disks.

can anyone please recommend a supplier before I try posting in the recycle bin area for a few used ones? The drives read fine, but It fails formatting so I'm *hoping* the drive's OK, just worn out old media. dunno.

anyone please suggest an affordable supplier? only want 5 or 10.

ta :)

Dear iainjh,

did you check out http://www.floppydisk.com/buy.htm yet?
If all else fails i could try and find some in my attic, might take some days.

Grtz, PymerOne.

I have some New Old Stock DSDD disks. I'd sell you a pack of 10 with sleeves for $5 + shipping. :) I have a proper disk notcher and would be happy to notch the second side if you need it. I'll also format all the disks with my C128 to make sure they format properly before sending them.

Just let me know.

BlankStare would probably be cheaper because of shipping. I could be wrong though. :)

Let's not hijack iainjh's thread. :) Start a new thread when you are ready and we can discuss. I have lots of used floppies but not many NOS.
