At the dump? Which dump contains a secret stash of disks? :)

I have a 6128 CPC. Its not been run for a while but wont be too hard to dig it out and see what it thinks of those disks. :)

Just take care in checking these. The media on these amstrad disks (like any floppy disks) can go mouldy or become flaky. When in that state they can easily leave deposits on the drive head that can wreck good disks inserted later. Visually check them carefully before trying to read.
