I know it sounds off-topic, or that I have a fetish with all things vintage, but the reality is that a lot of my EPROM data and other files were kept on 5.25″ floppy disks back in the 80’s. Getting at these files has been somewhat painful. But now I have compiled the parts to built my very own USB Floppy drive for 5-1/4″ disks. And it works!
Now I just need an enclosure to make it a bit more transportable. So if anyone in OC-land or LA-ville needs to read a floppy, I can do it!
