Strange Old Media


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



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:




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
