Exclamation A good few coverdisk collection auctions on eBay

Some appear to have a dirt cheap price on them too. I'm tempted to buy!


Of course, I still need your word as to whether you'd prefer me to ship them to you afterwards! That and the issue of The One I obtained last week as well.

Yeah you see lots of coverdisk lots appearing on ebay. Buying is 100% up to you

Coverdisk scans are one thing that we've uploaded 100% - if the disk scan is missing in AMR then we don't have an original of the disk.

I suspect any sort of international shipping will be quite prohibitive...

Erm, how about I give out any disks you need for free, and you only pay for shipping???

Haven't really got a good enough scanner it seems, I'm afraid.


And what about the risk of damaging disks, or even the possibility of imaging them? The latter I can't do.

Cool to hear that. There's a couple ending in around half a day's time or so...

9 CLASSIC Amiga Magazine Cover Disks (Set 1)

Out of this set it appears we'd only need AB'92 (to scan the cover), the Quik and Silva disk (not sure what magazine that's from!), and the mystery Amiga Mania disk.

9 CLASSIC Amiga Magazine Cover Disks (Set 2)

And out of this one it'd only be useful for filling in the missing scans for 3 of those 4 Amiga Action disks.

looked high and low for mine, but just cant find.

I would've thought someone here did still have a copy of the AP13 disk, but had trouble getting round the obstacle of this copy protection. Is it really not considered important enough to get IPF'd by the SPS team, when they had time for Cannon Soccer, Cannon Fodder Plus and what not?

I have AP13 coverdisks (that's a scan of my disk on AMR), but we can't image it due to the copy protection.

Aaaaah, tough copy protection eh? Can't even make an extended ADF out of it? (Not that I know which tools/hardware you need to make such things) But yes, this does look like a job for IFW and co.....

I've just heard back from the guy running this auction. Here's what he had to say:

Quote:
Hi,
( Please note that this list does not include the Public Domain and application disks)

The cover disks are as follows:

Amiga Shopper Shareware collection issue 21, 23,25,27,31,32,33.

CU Amiga disk nos: 40,41,44,50,54,56,58,59,64,68,70,76,
78,89,100,108,109,110,115,122,128,129,136,160,175.

Amiga Computing - Oct 91, Aug 92,Sept 92,Feb 94 (A and B),April 95 (A and B)

One Amiga July 94 A and B

Amiga Format - disk 12,15,23,26,29,39,45,46,50,51b,
52a,53a,54a,56b,57a,57b,58a,58b,58c,
61a,63b,65a,66a,67a,67b,67c,

Amiga Format collection - Animation station, Devpac2,Prodata,Amos.

Amiga User International - disk 9,14,15,23,24,26,27,28,42

Amiga action Xmas 94, Amiga Power disk 4, Zero Oct 90.

As you can see, it would take a very long time to catalog what each and every individual disk contains.

If there is a specific application, demo, or
utility that you are after, why not try the forums on many of the Amiga enthusiast sites that are still going strong out there ?

Hope this answers your query,
Cheers mcmurdo111
Not sure if you're missing any out of that list?

And I've recently won that auction and paid for it btw!

The One July 94 you don't appear to have, so I'm more than happy to help! But I really need to know who to send these disks to....

Easiest is probably to upload it to the HOL ftp then to let either myself or Codetapper know. Either of us can add it to AMR.

Well the disks came today, and I had a good grin on my face looking through all of them!

I could just send you the whole package/box like how it arrived Bip?

In the meantime, someone's flogging approximately 540 coverdisks in a single set.


That many disks could mean a chance of finding more rarities among the common/already-dumped stuff. It'll come to £21 total though. Should I take the risk folks?

I guess you need to ask yourself whether you have the storage space to keep it all, and calculate the time required to image all those disks! But I'm sure it'd plug a lot of gaps...
