FS: IBM Formatted DS DD Floppy Diskettes
By Ed Gaida

With all of the posts about the low density diskettes I looked in the
shop and found ten boxes of ten diskettes each that I purchased for use
on a computer controlled embroidery machine.

I no longer have the machine but have the diskettes which I would be
willing to sell.  They are Imation brand and come ten to a box.  To
obviate mistakes I am writing the specifications stated on the side of
the box:  DS/DD  1MB IBM Formatted.  These are the diskettes with the
_single_ [square] hole in them.

Since I know very little about the requirements of the PianoDisc
I leave it up to you readers to decide if these diskettes will work
in your piano.

The diskettes are USD 12.00 per box plus USD 5.00 shipping.
International customers across the pond will pay more for shipping.

To give everyone an equal chance to purchase some for their piano
I will limit orders to one box per person.

Email me your order using the address this message is coming from
deleting the ".geentroep" at the end.

If you want to try and purchase the diskettes at another location
you can try  You will find they have
discontinued the Verbatim and Imation brands but sell a bulk pack
of generic diskettes.  Their stock is low, they are cheaper than my
diskettes and theirs come without labels.  Currently they have three
50 diskette bundles left.  I was told by the order taker that these
diskettes are becoming almost impossible to find anymore.
