    I would caution against that particular cable because it uses the Prolific chipset. Instead look for one based on FTDI. You'll be happy you did - particularly on OSX.

    ADTPro will work fine in Franklins with expansion slots if you get a Super Serial card for it. There's no cassette on the Franklins. So serial is the most practical way to get info in and out of...

    Is your disk virtual? My new favorite hex editor is HxD (Windows only, I think) that lets you search for hex patterns.

    Get yourself a copy of the SSC user's manual and read up on it. Depending on the version, the section on terminal mode lives in different places. Several versions are here:...

    You could try terminal mode of your SSC if it's bog-standard comms you're trying to do.

    Hmmm, I've not come across one in North America that didn't. Of course, Apple II computers themselves don't adhere particularly well to NTSC... but that's the opposite problem. This monitor won't...

    Yes. It's got a very long-persistence phosphorous coating, so it's not particularly good for watching TV.

    On the plus side, they're pretty easy to come by. There's a couple of different possible CRT colors, and of course there's the normal dark brown vs. light tan accented one specifically targeted at...

    Correct, if you were only going to replace one. But you've experienced one failure already - chances are really good you'll have more. Deslolder them all, put in sockets, and replace all chips. ...

    Can you give a snap of the board serial number (near the power supply), and a snap of the power switch on the back of the power supply? Looks like a rev3 mobo (pulling the CPU will reveal the rev#...

    I wouldn't bother cleaning the slots unless they were not functioning in some way. The mechanical abrasion of inserting and removing cards has the effect of cleaning right where it matters most. ...

    See that hole about one inch from the back, at the top of each card? That was where you were supposed to insert the screwdriver and PULL.

    How sure are you that it's exactly the same ProDOS version? Have you tried any other versions (especially earlier ones)? How confident are you that your boot loader code in ROM is correct and is...

    What's the part numbers on your ROMs? I see these in Asimov:

    It's in the list because ProDOS reports it in the list of disk devices, but of course when ADTPro goes to ask what the volume name is, it's blank. I can probably figure out what's unique about 4/1...

    It sounds like something is up with your IIc. If you make or boot a DOS 3.3 disk, does it work normally - and respond on S6,D1?

    Sheepshaver? DiskCopy format? None of that is going to help you - this is a 140k disk for an Apple II. The Mac is not going to have any idea what to do with it. An 800k ProDOS disk is...

    Be very careful with that. Be especially careful not to apply ANY upwards force on the upper head past its natural stopping point.

    How bad was this "disaster," anyway?

    I have a slightly simpler recipe that may also work for you. On the left, MiniDIN 8. On the right, DE-9. This avoids pins 1 and 9 on your DE-9 end that you...

    Correct.


    There's no connection - so just leave them dangling (or snip them off). Just don't connect them to anything.

    You are being much too literal. This is ASCII art.

    Let's look at MiniDIN8 pins 4 and 8. What that means is that pins 4 and 8 tie together, and together connect to pin 5 of the DE-9 plug.

    The imagewriter one might work, but you will likely need a 25-9 pin adapter to mate it with a USB-RS232 device. Or the modem one might work with a null modem as well as that 25-9 adaptation. These...
