I am on the hunt for a 486 or similar, to bee able to run old programs.
My issue is that I have tried to run some programming software for some radios, but it would only work on a computer running Windows 95 or older.
As it is hardware with an age of more than +30 years, there will therefore be some wear and tear and floppy disks are not what they used to be.
- HDD replacement, using a CF compact flash card, sins there is long between healthy IDE hard disks.
- FDD Floppy Drive Emulator, that’s allows an USB stick to act like 99 floppy disks, with a disk selector.
