    Wanted: MS DOS on original 3.5" Floppies

    Does anyone have MS DOS on 3.5" floppies that I could buy? I'm looking for any version from v5.0 upwards! Many thanks.

    I know that there are sites I can download it from but I need it on the original floppy disks for an arts project.

    I might have 5 and 6.22, at least I used to. You say its for an arts project - do you need the disks to actually work? That I can't guarantee

    Yes please - there's a sequence to be filmed that shows them being inserted into a floppy drive and then a cut to the screen that shows the install taking place.

    Darn it .. I've just disposed of a load of floppies, which I think included a set of Dos Disks .. I know there was certainly Windows 3.1 in there ..

    OK, I'll have a look (and test them if I find them) over the weekend

    Any good t'ya? Apologies for the terrible camera phone pic.

    We've just dug out some old disks but they've got post-it notes on them saying they're faulty. If that's the case I'll certainly be interested! How much do you want for them & we'll of course pay p&P as well.

    Many thanks to all those who offered disks - in the end we managed to find a set and our resident Photoshop whizz recreated the labels for us and the student is very happy.
