Awesome! Looking at Youtube, it appears that floppy drive music is quite a popular hobby now. There was even scanner music.

That was frickin' awesome. The Imperial March is well suited to the floppy sound.

Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor was not exactly shabby!

If you search youtube, The Imperial March seems to be very popular amongst "alternative" musicians. Geek synchronicity.

I have what is quite possibly the worlds only black 5.25" floppy drive ever made in my basement. It wasn't painted black after the fact either, That is the original color the face plate was molded in. I like the fact it blends in inside a modern tower. Now one of these days I will get a replacement c64 power adapter.

Given its name, the 5 1/4-inch floppy was doomed from the start.

It may be small, but it's fierce.

I was looking for a game earlier today and found a complete set of windows for workgroups floppys. Imagine my surprise to find out that the data is still perfectly intact on them. I successfully made images of them for future use.

I also had msworks in there but one of the disks is missing.
