I would ask if anyone remembers CDs!  I've been looking for a new
laptop and it seems like the DVD/CD player is not fully deprecated.
Amazing!


I remember CD's - I have loads.  (I don't know if I still have my
original Walnut Creek CD - I bought my first CD-ROM player solely for
use with that CD.)  But I would not buy a laptop with a DVD drive now.
A USB Bluray writer drive is simple, cheap, small, and handles
everything of that kind of media.  Buy it once, and use it on all your
PC's and laptops.

Exactly, you can buy a whole range of obsolete based peripherals with a
USB interface from eBay for peanuts. I still have a floppy drive on a
USB port (for some DOS stuff) and although it is slow it works fine.


I bought one of these at the office a few years back, after someone
needed data from an old 3.5" floppy (we managed to get an old PC to boot
and used that). I haven't even opened the box yet.

has some language courses on cassette, I think I pay less than 12 UK
pounds for it.


That sounds a good idea. We have piles of old cassettes - old music,
and audio books.

I still have a VHS player connected to the telly, but it's been used
only a handful of times in the last decade. We use DVDs, Blurays and
audio CDs all the time.

Now finding a USB interface for my 8" floppy disks with Uniflex will be
a challenge........


The only 8" floppy I have has hung on the wall for 25 years - I doubt if
anything could read it!

I agree, I have a whole box of 8" floppies which I am sure are all dead.
I also have two 8" drives attached to a "Kees Schoenmaker" 6809 19" rack
system which might still power up if I am very very very lucky. The
system is close to 37 years old.

Ah...... the good old days Smile

Interesting. My friend is actually still digitizing his music
collection. Vinyls were done long ago but he's still working on his
cassettes... But he has an actual tape deck with line level output
connected to his PC.
