Re: [midatlanticretro] Disk dupe station or swap at VCF?
- I have an vintage 5 1/4" Mountain disk duplication machine. It works
(supposedly) for Tandy, IBM, and Apple. You put in 50 disks and they're
copied one at a time. I have only tested the software to see how the
images are created, I have not run a batch of disks to see if the actual
copies are "burned" correctly.
I also have a vinage cassette to cassette machine, but it's not known to
work. I have not spent much time with it.
I had considered making some sort of exhibit along these lines (how did
they copy software?) plus a system to copy papertape programs, but I have
had higher priorities.
