Quote from: Deeko on 01:01, 23 March 14Hi all,Recently cleared out the loft and found my old non-working 464+ Along with it was an old disc box with a handful of 3.5" floppies so I've ordered this to archive as DSK imageSearch for Proxima Direct® External USB Portable Floppy Disk Drive 1.44MB FDD on amazon.co.uk
