    Default Gm950+ australian version cps

    My old toshiba programming laptop has crapped out. i have just loaded up all of my old rss except for the gm950+ as my original disks are 5 1/4" and I don't have a drive left to take them

    These are long long past their support and I don't see any breach in asking for the rss acoording to myunderstanding of the rules

    Anyone got it in an archive I can reload ?

    Thankyou in advance

    check the lithium battery often they die and the computer wont boot with it dead.

    There is no issue in asking if someone has a computer that can read and copy the 5 1/4 disks. Since the software is so old I dont even see an issue with posting a zip containing the files if you get the disks read. Ham radio flea markets are sometimes a good source for old computers that may have the drive in it.

    how bad is bad? if the drive powers up it may be possible to configure it as a slave and read the programs from it.
