Hey Rui,Don't worry bout any cash, I have a bunch of 5 1/4 inch disks here and can dig out my 130XE and run off copies of dos 2.5 and mydos which I prefer. I'll put on a couple utilities too like diskcomm & arc/unark. I should do bobterm too if you want to transfer stuff over serial nullmodem from a pc or something.

Hi James,I'm definitely interested in a copy of Atari DOS 2.5, it's tough using just the Atari Basic and the 1010 tape deck. I'm willing to spare some cash for a copy of the Atari DOS 2.5 as I don't have access to a 1050-2-PC cable at the moment.*Rui Soares* * *Crazy in love with Mai-Liis and some day flying.--- On *Wed, 3/11/09, James Alexander /<james.m.alexander@xxxxxxxxx>/* wrote:From: James Alexander <james.m.alexander@xxxxxxxxx> Subject: [torontocbm] Re: Idea for next TPUG Meeting To: torontocbm@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Received: Wednesday, March 11, 2009, 12:14 PM Hey Rui, I have Atari DOS 2.5, MyDos and a bunch of other software. I could bring a Copy of the dos disk of both of them if your interested. Its definately a 1050 you've got? since there was the earlier 810 drive which didn't store as much as the 1050 did.

The Atari 1050 floppy drive works as well, but I don't have the Atari DOS 2.5 disk that allows me to access the drive remotely. The 8-bit Atari's had it's DOS booted separately from it's basic.
