    What can cause an external superdrive to fail?

    Well no clue on the original drive and why it is not reading properly. I tried cleaning the head again to no avail. I tried a second Superdrive and it is 100% dead, the Applesauce can't talk to it at all. I found a third that works that has a dead eject motor; dead as in doesn't do anything...

    What can cause an external superdrive to fail?

    Well, it's definitely the floppy drive. I pulled the one out of my LC 475 and it works fine with the Applesauce. Still wondering what can cause them to go bad.

    What can cause an external superdrive to fail?

    In the last couple of weeks I've used my Applesauce to convert quite a few 3.5" floppies ... 400k, 800k, and 1.44M. It worked well. I even broke the drive eject gear, replaced it, and it kept on chugging just fine. But a few disks I did this week have me scratching my head. They came with...

    Anyone have Farallon StarCommand?

    Wow, the files shared with me are still on dropbox after 6 years. I looked just to verify how they were packaged to see if they are done so in a way that preserves the resource fork; they are in zip files, which I am grabbing again. But a quick perusal seems to indicate that things in this...

    Anyone have Farallon StarCommand?

    Oh, how random. I found a .sit archive of StarCommand 3.2 on a WAREZ collection someone passed on to me via Dropbox in 2015. There is a TON of stuff that is part of this collection and I've never given it a second look. I wonder if there are some lost things people have been looking for in...

    Anyone have Farallon StarCommand?

    I've got two of the Farallon StarControllers now, but both of them came with corrupt software floppies. :( Anyone have a copy of the StarController StarCommand software disk imaged?

    IMG vs DMG - best practices archiving CDs

    Oh, and can OS 9, System 8, System 7 mount ISO images easily?

    IMG vs DMG - best practices archiving CDs

    Yes, I'd be curious how to do this with DD. Do you think it will work on a CD Catalina Disk Copy won't make an image of?

    IMG vs DMG - best practices archiving CDs

    Well heck, with some of the CD's, I can't create an image via Disk Copy on Catalina. They must be HFS format or something, not a standard CD format.

    IMG vs DMG - best practices archiving CDs

    I think this was discussed in the previous incarnation of 68kmla but I can't find it anymore. I am going through all my media to archive it for eventual posting to vintageapple.org, and other places. Floppies are easy with Applesauce. I'm a little confused about the best way to archive CDs...

    G4 B&W thoughts

    As I go through all my stuff to figure out what to get rid of, I started playing around with a G4 B&W 450.  It needs a DVD-RW drive and an HD, but is in otherwise good working condition.  I'm a little torn on this one.  On the plus side, I'm really impressed with the case design and how...

    540c not enough free memory error

    540c not enough free memory error

    Unless I am missing something, plenty of memory available.

    540c not enough free memory error

    I've got a 540c in very good shape with 20MB ram.  It seems that most programs give me the "not enough free memory" error.  For example, running fetch 2.12. It is running 7.6.1 and the OS is only using 3 Megs and change, so memory is definitely not an issue. The memory control panel does not...
