130Re: New to List
- Sep 19 8:28 PMThanks so much for the website - its exactly what I was looking for!
A friend of mine told me about them - they are advertised in the UK
and becomming popular but she doesnt have a machine any longer so
has not tested it.
Has anyone here on the list every used one of these? They sound
great and PC compatible too:) downside is they dont take the
floppies so I would have to find a way of converting them (
manually). My floppy disk drive is just about dying so I think I
may need this as a replacement.
Thanks again for the url - great find:)
