Imation SuperDisk LS-120 USB 120MB Floppy Disk Drive

An Imation SuperDisk LS-120 Floppy Disk Drive arrived in the post today! Works perfectly in Windows XP but I can't find a driver that will make it work in Windows 10 which would be the icing on the cake!

2-Power BNOS Universal Power Adapters and CF to IDE Adapters

More shopping!!!

I shall use these Compact Flash to IDE adapters to replace the original hard disk drives that have come with some of the laptops I have purchased as I've a load of cheap CF cards I got from CEX and I'd rather they wore out than the original HDDs.

I store my laptops and power adapters (all labelled up to which laptop they belong) in two different boxes/tubs so these brand new old stock 2-Power Universal Laptop AC Adapters are going to save a lot of time messing about!

Dell Latitude D800 - A Break From The Norm

Todays delivery is a break from the norm in the fact that this is a Dell laptop rather than a Compaq or HP one.

This one is not for keeps though, this is for me to refurbish and upgrade to sell on for some more funds to buy more Compaq equipment.

Compaq (HP) nc6220 (with faulty power adapter)

This arrived today:

There are a couple of scratches on the lid, but the keyboard and screen appear to be immaculate!  The power supply/adapter however, has not been stored properly and has been over-wound and damaged:

You can see the twists in the cable if you look in the top-left of the above photo and if you take a look at the bottom you can see the internal wires are beginning to show so this is too dangerous to even attempt to use.

As it only cost me £5 plus £8 delivery (and it was very well packaged) it's not the end of the world to buy a replacement adapter.
