I finally managed to get my hands on a YD-8U10 floppy drive, one of the few (or maybe only) that works on a Jornada 820. And it sure does!
Now I can post Photos from my Sony Mavica directly to the internet without ever using a PC

Nice work! To be honest I had forgotten about cameras that used floppies for storage.

Very nice!

Kinda reminds me of War Games (The 1st movie).

The Travel 120 works on the Jornadas too. It's a pcmcia type floppy that reads/writes 720 or 1.44 disks, also reads/writes the LS120 mb disks too. Do they still make those?

Of course your camera can use that Sony floppy/memory stick adapter too. Thinking you could use a pcmcia memory stick adapter as another option…though not sure really.

I doubt they're still in production, Rich. Who'd use them other than vintage computing buffs like us? (I have a Travel 120 buried somewhere in my house. )

I'd forgotten about the Mavica too until you mentioned it, Karpour. We actually had one of those at work about 20 years ago.

First time I've heard the term, Mavica.
Nostalgy time for you folks out there:

We don't seem to have a Travwl 120 in the HCL!


Is the photograph of a 8U10-8300 (which is in the HCL) or is the YD-8U10 a different device (which isn't)?

It's the same one, C:Amie. I mentioned it here:

https://www.hpcfactor.com/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=4840

I have one too, but it's the 4x-speed model (YD-8U14).

The Y-E Data Web site is closed now, but you can see them here in the Wayback Machine:
