I will buy your microdrive and any other accessories! Please let me know where the listing is and if there is any way I can convince you to de-list it from EBay and make a direct sale to me, a loyal Oric fanboix!

EDIT: I've searched all over EBay UK but all I can find is Sinclair models .. any chance you haven't listed it yet? Please, I would desperately like to buy your microdrive from you!

EDIT2: I found it and placed my bid but if there is any way to convince you to just sell it to me right away (Buy it now?) you will have hot cash in your hands and I will .. finally .. get the piece of my Atmos system that I have desperately wanted all these years. :)

<--- Very reliable, and absolutely frantic that, finally, a Microdisc is out there ..

thankyou for your kind offer I have replied to your question on ebay I have had a few oricarians asking about it and think its only fair that everyone is given an equal chance .
I have had a few problems with items going missing when I send abroard but if as long as somone has a UK address to send it to not a problem.

Ah I don't have anyone in the UK that can *Bid* for me, just a friend of mine who can receive the item for me and send it on.

I will see what I can do - but if anyone here wants to do it for me, I'd be happy to pay a little extra. I *really* want a Microdisc!

If you have *any* microdiscs, in any condition, I'd be interested.

I'm trying to develop an SD-based microdisc hardware replacement for the Oric, and having a microdisc to use as a reference would be very useful for this project. The idea would be to make a module that plugs into the Data port of the Oric, and has a SD card on the other side that can be used to mount disk images.. with the Oric none the wiser that it isn't plugged into an old microdisc, but instead newer more modern hardware.

I've already started this project by obtaining the Cumana PCB from Twilighte and working with Steve to work out some of the more technical details, but it sure would be helpful if I could .. somehow .. get myself a microdisc as a reference.

Congratulations nobbysnuts. :shock:

Yes, you'll can give to your daughter a great christmas gift. :D

How much for your spare PSU?. I have one Microdisc, but without the power supply.

Best regards.

I have been studying documents mostly, no real progress in terms of development, but I think I'm starting to see a way to proceed .. now its just a matter of finding the right hardware for the job ..
