I have a tiny "Removable media museum" in my office at work.
Left to right:
- Tandon 8" floppy drive+media (1970s)
- Sony DRU-500A, first optical drive to write both DVD+R and -R (2003)
- HP 6020, first affordable consumer CD recorder (1995)
- IOMega Zip 100 (1994)
@zorinlynx I wonder if the 8" disk that's wedged between the floppy drive and the DRU-500A still reads
At least you have the drive that might read it! I just have a stack of 8" floppies ;o)
I wonder if that 8" drive has a head loading mechanism. It seems to be too thin to need one (i.e., it has DC spindle motor that can be stopped by the drive).
