How long would an opus file be and still be of tolerable quality in 1.44MB Maybe midi is the way to go.

>> No.56148214

File is too large with the EXIF to fit a floppy so I already stripped it.

>> No.56148267

It's not tolerable waiting that long copying 1.4MB from a floppy.

>> No.56148330

So I`m answering my own quesiton,
1.4 @ ~8kbps is ~24 minutes but the quality is worse than a phonograph or possibly about the same.

16kbps is half the size, but the quality is slightly worse than a vinyl record player.

32kbps is like the quality of a shitty streaming video of the early 2000s

Anything above 64 or 128 is about mp3 player quality and the difference between those you have to listen for the compression 256 is could probably satisfy an audiopile

>> No.56148363

Wrong, 4 bytes will fit only 368640 times (and that assuming you write to disk directly without establishing any filesystem on it, otherwise there's overhead which further reduces the number).

1.4MiB is much close to the correct number. The popular "1.44MB" is wrong, and so is 1.4MB. To come up with the figure 1.44, you have to mix up decimal and binary units.

512 bytes x 18 sectors/track x 80 tracks/head x 2 heads = 1474560 bytes. Divided by 1024 it's 1440 kiB (now the bullshit becomes apparent because having divided the total capacity by 1024 first, you'd now have to divide by 1000 to arrive at 1.44 which would be neither MB nor MiB), which is in turn 1.40625 MiB.

Sure you can, plenty of old DOS/other home computer games, and also a lot if not most of console ROMs from that era (a Super Mario Bros. ROM is only 40KiB iirc).
