You're right, that's a floppy connector version. I wasn't looking at the auction photos but apparently there also an external parallel model. Also found this page with a Windows 95 driver for various ...

I've never tried any of those IDE to USB adapters myself, though I have read they can be kind of iffy depending on the quality and what kind of device you are using them with. I was looking up Travan ...

I'm not sure about Travan but I know LTO drives can only read back two tape generations. I searched a bit and found this page that seems to indicate that at least some Travan drives can read tapes one ...

The only CPU related jumper is JP1, CPU Speed select. It is set for 25/33/50MHz, where the other setting is for 20 MHz. I never could get it to go any higher than 50, though at this point it probably ...

My trustworthy 486 started acting up a few weeks ago, not wanting to boot up and being weird and now it won't go past the Wait" message no matter what I do. It's an ASUS ISA-486SIQ motherboard. I ...

I decided to dig out my 486 this week and do some renovating. I ordered a CompactFlash to IDE adapter to replace the annoyingly loud hard drive and upgraded the original Intel 486 DX-33 to a DX2-66 CP ...

Thanks, I think mine was the very last revision they made for it. It has the 1986 BIOS, a full 640K of RAM and I've tested 720k 3.5" floppy drives on it and they work. I like the CF cards though ...

An alternative I found would be one of those CF adapters that plug into an 8-bit slot. I could then use it as a hard drive. Any recommendations?

So yesterday I got vintage computer fever again and dragged my old XT out of the storage building where it has sat for ten years. I wasn't sure it would work after all the freezing winters and hot sum ...

I sent you my email; my computer is put away at the moment but I'll try it out as soon as I get a chance. Smile
