> Google finds web pages explaining the first 8" floppy disks ("diskettes")
and drives from IBM, then the commercial ones.
> I think I need to clarify what disks came first. Hard sectored before
soft sectored? How many sectors? Who were the first manufacturers?
> The reason I ask: I just found one 8-inch single sided 32 sector
diskette. The label said "Maxell FH1 32" but under that's a Shugart
Associates "SA103 diskette" label. I need to know if that's the oldest
floppy around, or if MARCH or MARCH members have older ones.
