Subject: IBM Wheelwriter Diskette Question


I have a customer who wants to retrieve data from an IBM Wheelwriter 70,
Series II, Model 6789 Typewriter 3.5 inch diskettes. I do not have any of
these diskettes. I would assume they'd be a much lower capacity than the
standard 1.4meg, and probably non DOS. Does anyone have any suggestions how
such data can be retrieved?
