Re: Hi from Montreal (via Bexhill)

I'm in Toronto and may be the guy SCRUSS was aluding to... I have an Acorn Atom, but no disk drive unfortunately. I do however, have a BBC model B with 5 1/4" drives and an SDcard based BEEB.MMB devices, and could copy the files there to a blank disk image, if I'm able to read the disks. That might ...

Re: Internal or External Zip drive for my A7000

sounds like a good idea, I will re-flow the 25pin connector.
it cannot hurt. I will also look for battery damage, but there
did not appear to be any, as the previous owner removed it
(from what I recall) before there was any... but It's been a while.

:) I will double check. Thank you :)
