Picked up the data general one on Trade Me, but no SW

by matsondawson » Sun Oct 07, 2012 3:58 pm

Yetiseti bought one a while ago, have you got any software?

After lots of guesswork on power supplies etc, I finally have it going.
It has 336kb of ram, and the worlds largest 5.25" drive.
Unfortunately no cable for the drive which looks like 37 pin d-sub to 60+ pin IDC? (doubt I'll ever find one of those)
Reasonable condition, and the screen is as awful as the internet says.

I was moderately interested in the Data General too, but I wasn't prepared to pay quite as much as you for something untested and with no PSU Matt. Good to see it worked out for you :)

Is the external drive a full height 5.25 inch drive or is the PSU simply overengineered? Alternatively is there simply a lot of space inside the drive case?
