Apple //c data

2000-08-12 17:45:48+00 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

Anyone out there know an affordable solution to transferring some data that might still reside on 5.25" Apple //c disks? I assume ProDOS, but they might be DOS3.3.

I'd say, hit ebay or garage sales and buy and Apple IIc and send them via serial port. I think the Apple IIgs might be able to read IIc disks and write Mac OS floppies - if you know someone with a IIgs...

http://www.ece.nwu.edu/~cbachman/apple.html Yup yup, you're better off getting an Apple II model at a garage sale and xmodeming the files over to your PC.

Damn, finding hardware probably won't be that hard, finding software might be a bitch.

Is it worth $75 to you? http://www.thearc.com/apple2.html $75 for guaranteed working hardware ain't bad. Also, for the price, I'm sure you could get them to give you a boot disk an a terminal app.

The cables and software for moving files between the Apple II and a PC are here in my office somewhere. The Apple IIs that we had were disposed of two weeks ago, proving again that a need will arise for anything that has remained unused for years shortly after that item is disposed of. Let me know if you need the cable and software and give me shipping instructions.

I've got a //c if needed. It may actually give me an excuse to see if it still boots <grin>
