  • Some correct 800k disks would probably be more reliable, but I discovered a work-around for the 1.44mb disk that I have in abundant supply. By taping over the write tab for "side two" of the disk the PPC7700 is confused by the disks and asks me to format before use, but as a 800k disk instead of the 1.44mb disk that they actually are. Using this trick and a burned copy of the Apple...

  • I'll check that out Alex, thanks. Ian, I have a PPC 7100 and/or my PowerBook (something) from 1993 that I was going to use to copy the images, the disks or lack thereof was my biggest issue. The drive seems to work correctly, it will accept and eject disks. I've read that they have issues, but this one seems to work, at least as far as I can test. Also, the workshops sound great...

  • I just got a free 512k Mac, but I have no system disk. Would it be possible for someone to make me a copy of one of the compatible OSs and bring it to VCFEast in April?

I have at least one Mac that...

  • Hello everyone, I finally have something worthwhile to post here, so I'm going to post. I just got my second Sharp PC-7000 at VCF this year, and I'm having some issues with the Canon MDD 413 dual floppy drive. The drive will work alright as long as I keep it going. The issue is that when the drive stops, it has a tendency to not start again until I gently give the drum a nudge...
