Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

You can get a 3"5 USB Floppy Drive off of eBay I believe and use it to dump the floppies using your main computer but there are only 3"5 USB Floppy Drives I believe. If you want to dump 5"25 floppies you need to copy the files from the 5"25 to a 3"5 using perferibly an older computer and then use the USB Floppy Drive on your computer to dump it

Well, what he said wasn't that stupid. There is no 5.25" floppy drives with USB interface (well, you can use Kryoflux but that's an expensive option)
And he probably thought you can only have a 5.25" drive in a really old computer so you will have to use 3.5" disk to transfer data from 5.25" and use USB device to transfer the data to your PC. However, that's not true. Any PC that has a standard floppy controller can handle both 5.25" and 3.5" drives at the same time (A&B). So you can plug your drive there and dump it straigh. But if you have one of those computers from late 2000s, like my Dell from 2005 you may not be able to use 5" 25 drives, since the BIOS here is limited to a single 3.5" 1.44MB drive. And I would not recommend using USB floppy drives. They are dumb and crappy, one even streched my disk. Also, they're limited to 1.44 disks, so no 720K or DMF disks.

Maybe you can consider lending your floppies to a fellow BA member with a proper drive/kryoflux and get them dumped (and scanned) properly? I think that would be much appreciated to get good dumps from those originals.

If he has a 5.25" drive then he can image the disks directly, so I don't see the point of complicating things with 3.5" drives and whatnot. If he doesn't, then perhaps sending the disks to a fellow member who has such a drive is an option. Or buying a drive off eBay.

And yes, if you want quality hardware that works, avoid USB floppy drives.

I am glad this interested somebody.
I am on vacation, when i get home, i will post a photo of the Windows 95 5.25 disks.

Do you have Windows 95 5.25 on your FTP?


What else do i have:

Windows XP SP3 VL Russian - custom installer (Pirated)
Windows XP SP0 and Office 2003 English/Russian (Legit?)

There is a copy of 5.25" Windows 95 English on the FTP, but apparently it's an upgrade version. It's also not an original dump, so either way your copy would be appreciated.

As far as XP stuff goes, that custom installer thing is pretty much ineligible for FTP right away, as we don't accept such things. For the second one, if it's legit, it could be interesting.

Lock this topic because my mind was messing with me.

No need to do that all because you did a single mess-up as you can still supply the other stuff you mentioned. Also, for the Windows XP SP3 VL Russian - custom installer (Pirated), how in what way is it modified and can you provide pictures of the modifications too? If you try hard enough, you can mess with it and make it legit enough to the point where you could upload it. Also 9/11 floppies lol
