Old hard drive

  1. I have a NIB Seagate ST-251 40 MB hard drive, if anyone want one for an old XT.

    I originally bought one from Hard Drives Int'l and when it made noise, I asked if they would let me pay the extra to upgrade to an 80 MG drive.

    They wouldn't but they sent me another new 40 MB that I didn't want and I then bought an 80 MB drive.

    That left me with a new 40 MB that I never used.

    Do you mean 40GB and not 40MB, and what do you want for it($$)? Also, why don't you use it as a slave in your machine, I would. You already own it and it's easy to do.

    use it as an external transfer drive.
    Also I don't think selling/buying is allowed here - we have run across this before.

    I meant 40MB. This is for an old IBM XT.

    It's capacity is smaller than a Zip disk.

    If someone was restoring an old computer it would work well.

    On my old XT, I had 2 hard drives and 3 floppy drives.
    I had a separate partition for each type of data files--Graphics--database--word processor etc.
