Would love to get a copy of the support diskettes for this unit. A user named "Arf the Lab" mentioned having them, but the post is from 2005 so I doubt my PM will get through. But, I remain hopeful Smile

Yes, unfortunately that's the PCPI CP/M driver (already have it). I need the format utility, which I assume was on the DOS support diskette. Would also be nice to have the DOS driver for posterity.

I don't know who "Arf the Lab" is, nor if he's active here anymore. If anyone has a lead, please ping him? Thanks.
