well i dug out my massive collection of old computer games (DOS Apple II and all the oldies hehe) and i realized most of them are on 5 1/4 inch floppies!!! AHHH!!!!

Anyway im interested in playing these again and i was wondering if anyone knows where i can pick up an external 5 1/4 inch floppy drive!!!!

Another question about running them if you find one for me...Are they gonna be super accelerated and run redicoulusly fast to the point where i cant play them because ive seen this happen before but ive never ran them from the actual floppies so i dont know

Thanks in advance

Ebay!
And no, if you've got old games on floppies that the system has been emulated, most have the ability to dump your floppy to a rom image.
Some will even read the disks in the emulator (Such as Atari ST emu's)

Thanks alot but The only problem with ebay is that im broke (like 10 dollars hehe) and have no credit card hehe

ahh well i guess thats the only place you would find one anyway....maybe pricewatch.com or tigerdirect.com has one ill check...

but i suppose i could just wait it out for something to show up on ebay
