Title: Toshiba EW-100 with 8 Inch floppy drives
Post by: Tom Paynter on March 03, 2014, 02:01:34 PM
Hello All,

This is only my second post, so please let me know if I'm not following site etiquette.

I have recently brought a Toshiba EW-100 word processor as a restoration project, it currently fails to boot, probably because the system disk has degraded over time, but I'm working on that.

(http://www.tdpe.co.uk/projects/tdp_wiki/images/thumb/c/c4/Toshiba_EW-100.png/647px-Toshiba_EW-100.png)

What I wanted to ask is:
Does anyone know anything about these systems/seen them before?
And has anyone else got anything similar(big and ugly with 8 Inch disks) systems?

Its got an 8085 processor and 64K of ram, I have started writing a page about it:

And I am currently building a tool for recovering the 8 Inch floppies.

Cheers,
Tom
