I still have (at least 40) systems that can read and write floppies. I
will not start a new system with floppy and llikely new programs will be
either on line (saerial down load) or on media thaats compatable with an
existing system. If incompatable
then its either a coding issue for a differrnt format but still within
softector capability (1771, 1783, 765) or its oddball enough to be
likely some hardsector format I don't have. The trouble maker know is
Intel DD 8" (m2FM)
as there are no chips for that and it is softsector.
