    I had the blueish-gray external model, for portability. I think the disks were only 100MB, IIRC. I did have an internal drive that looked like that for my PC. I might still have the external unit somewhere. I have dropped off so much old electronics to Best Buy I can't remember.

    Files tend to be all the way from the start to the end. But I get your point in shit keeps getting bigger and yet is it getting better? Also had a zip drive.

    I like the monitor, my amiga 14" ones look about as good as that I lie they went many years ago along with my A2000 and a g-lock.... there is something to retro google
    My point was i am a pack rat!!, and now i am trying to purge shit in my basement. And things are getting bigger because you need the space to keep up with the growth or technology no?? going from a 27" console tv that had a remote antenna that got 10 channels, it has come a long way from that, and thinking a good quality sound and picture quality movie fit on a 700mb disk, was like WoW!! right buddy. Now you expand the TV to 60" and try to view the same quality?? I think you have to be back about a 100 feet and squint to see a clear picture

    But OH!!! the good ol days

    DivX was used before XviD, but I believe you are referring to VCD (.vcd and sometimes .bin and .cue). VCDs for movies were very popular. Many movies came in two 700MB files. I still have a couple of old DVD players ( 5 disc carousel) that will play VCD and DivX/XviD.

    I still have a couple Plextor CD and DVD burners that can copy protected CDs/DVDs (along with BlindWrite or similar app).

    I never used Zip disks for storage. Mainly to transfer files from school computer to home computer and vise versa.
    School!!!!?? I assume you are talking you became a Teacher latter in life?? The only thing i remember from school is those fill in punch cards, The only thing with zip in it was my coat, Velcro was not around yet
    Just Kidding......

    Got rid of my Plextor long time back (IDE), was not on the list for burning Xbox 360 games, and thanks buddy for the memory of VCD, i had a 5 disc player as well but no go in the VCD's, you always had to look around for the cheap players to work or if i remember the better Pioneers also worked?? I had Onkyo and Denon players but no go either. And i just purged those as well, and how about at least 40 Direct TV and Dish Network receivers (Dish and Bell worked for both), and at least 20 activation cards!, and a ton of boards!!..
    Oh the good ol days with having wide open channels......

    Had a few of these lined up on a table as well

    College classes. I had a Sony 5-disc spinner that played VCDs. I think it was a Panasonic after that. Then I went to Oppo.

    My Plextor is SCSI. Came with its own controller card (probably ISA card). Might be why it could copy anything with proper software. I was copying PC games that used SecuROM for myself and PSX games for my brother. After a while copying became impossible, so resorted to CD cracks. Then when I only downloaded games, the cracks were included.

    I never got into satellite TV. I had a few "black boxes" over the years.
