The MOASC continues unabated (Mother of all shack clearouts). I’m up to 10-11 estate (station wagon) loads of old electronics PCB and junk. I disposed of all the 3.5in floppies, about 350, none of which have been used since 2002 and two old 3.5in floppy drives. I am about to embark on checking the 6 scrap PATA IDE hard disks (40, 60, 80, 160, 160, 200GB) have been scanned and useful stuff copied to the shack NAS before they are destroyed.
In this process I have found my TS-570 and IC-706 radios, they were under 10 years credit card statements and a SOTA hat I no longer wear
But what do you do with PATA IDE DVD drives? I have 2x perfect Pioneer high speed all mode DVD/CD writers and a high speed DVD-ROM. They all work perfectly and have probably only written 100 DVD/CD between them. It hurts me to bin them when they work.
Suggestions for something to do with them?
(And yes, if someone pays they postage they can have them.)
