Who still uses SuperDisks?

I recently came into a small cache of SuperDisk media as well as a couple of drives (a PC parallel port one and one that fits my Dell laptop). Out of curiousity, I went to ebay to see if I could find an internal or, perhaps, a USB external and was surprised to see that they still seem to command a bit of a premium.

So, I was wondering, who is still using SuperDisks? I imagine that some of the premium comes from the fact that Imation does not make media or drives any more, but it still implies that there is actually a demand. So, who is it?

I use them. I have a pansoni

I use them. I have a pansonic digital camera (sd4090) that uses superdisks. Its like the sony mavica except that with the ablity to use superdisks, you can store WAY more pictures, plus the superdisks read/write quite a bit faster.

I could always use more superdisk or a drive or 2. Smile

Me

If you are looking to get rid of them, I will gladly take them. I used them as back up media for smaller files prior to getting a burner. I still use them for holding private records and such.
