Strange Old Media

Hi,

Going through an office cleanup, this interesting item was discovered:

media1

I’d never seen one of these before, but it is a Magneto-optical drive which holds 128mb of re-writable data. Quite a cool disk I thought!

We also had a bunch of these:

media4

It’s a storage case for Microfilm from SnapLOCK Hadn’t seen this stuff either!

Not much else to add about these, it’s just nice to see ‘new’ stuff once in a while!

Update: Also found this one!

It’s a 8 inch floppy, not to be confused with the newer 5 1/4 inch floppy. Read about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_floppy_disk_formats#IBM_8-inch_formats
