So, I picked up a bunch (5) of Century Data T-50s, (also labelled as
"Diva" disk systems), which seem to be multi-platter 54.7MB removable
14" disk-pack drives. Of course, I didn't get any of the disk packs to
go with them.
My questions are:
1) Does anyone have any available disk packs, or know if they're
interchangable with something else that is availble?
2) Does anyone want (some of) them? I don't want to give them up for
nothing, but I'm not looking to get too much out of them, and I'd
rather give them to someone who finds them useful than let them sit
around, especially since I don't have any disk packs (yet).
The drives are 150-200lbs each, and are rated at 4A at 208-240V (60Hz
IIRC). There's a detailed manual on bitsavers about them:
I also have the T2000 disk excerciser and T2001 head alignment boxes for
the drives. I have no idea if any of this works; it was probably in
storage for 10+ years, and the drives date back to about 1980.
