Obsolete Storage Media Collection

Back to collections
  • 3 1/2" or 3.5" disks. I have boxes of these that hold 720Kb, 1.4Mb, or 2.88Mb each.
  • 5 1/4" or 5.25" disks. I have a slew of these that hold from 360Kb to 1.2Mb each.
  • Iomegas first removeable media, the Bernoulli disk. I have a stack of 90Mb disks for my SCSI external drive used with my old ROM Macs.
  • Commodore Vic 20 data cassette, I have a bunch of bought games as well as a few tapes of BASIC programs I wrote and save back in the early 80s.
  • An old platter hard drive package. These went into IBM 1331 units that were about the size of a washing machine and held something like 7Mb of data. This is the only media I own that I don't have a drive to play it on... I wish I knew what was on it.
  • Many companies made Travan tapes and in a bunch of sizes. I have really old 40Mb tapes all the way up to TR-4 8GB tapes. I also have a few internal and external Travan drives, mostly by Colorado.
  • Iomegas second type of removable media, the Zip Disk. I have boxes of 100Mb and a few 250Mb as well as parallel, USB, and internal Zip drives.

Description

Most of the types of storage media I have for my vintage computer collection. I'm still searching for an 8" floppy disk, if anyone knows of any please let me know.
