    Damaged my System 7 System folder with an HD20 running System 6 - Help!

    I decided to try and replace the SCSCI2HD System folder with the contents of a FloppyEmu(FE) HD20 mode System 7.1 system folder. I verified the contents of the FE HD20 System 7.1 System folder by booting up my Macintosh Plus with the FE HD20 System 7.1. I made notes of the contents of the System...

    Damaged my System 7 System folder with an HD20 running System 6 - Help!

    I have a Macintosh SE/30 with a SCSI2HD with many applications and files that I have acquired and created over 5 years. The SD card in the SCSI2HD drive is not accessible with the back cover installed. As a result I have not made a backup copy of the SD card contents. My plan was to use my...

    Infocom Trinity - How to make a disk that is playable on Macintosh 512K

    As it turns out, my 400k Trinity disk had the CDEF virus. The CDEF virus does not affect the Mac Plus running system 6.0.3 and the Trinity disk worked fine on that computer. I repaired the disk using Disinfectant 3.7.1 and am now able to run the Trinity on my original Macintosh with 512K.

    What’s happening to my 400k disks?

    It was the CDEF virus. I used Disinfectant 3.7.1 to repair the disks. Now the disks work again on the original Macintosh.

    What’s happening to my 400k disks?

    I have an original Macintosh that has its memory expanded to 512K. I had a number of 400k disks (Finder 4.1 and Finder 5.1) that work ( read and write files) on this computer. I also have a Macintosh Plus computer that has its memory expanded to 4MB. When I startup the Mac Plus with one of the...

    Infocom Trinity - How to make a disk that is playable on Macintosh 512K

    I tried to use the latest Macintosh system for the 512k Macintosh (Finder 5.5, I think) with the Trinity game on its own 400k disk (System and Finder and Trinity game will not fit on 400k disk), but this would not work on my original Macintosh with 512k RAM. As soon as I double click on Trinity...

    Infocom Trinity - How to make a disk that is playable on Macintosh 512K

    Just tried my FE with my MacPlus booted with my 400k disk with Finder 4.1and the 400k Trinity disk image I made on mini Vmac and that works. Hmmmm…not sure why it doesn’t work on my original Mac with 512K (system bomb/error). Even when connected to my MacPlus the FE doesn’t like the Trinity disk...

    Infocom Trinity - How to make a disk that is playable on Macintosh 512K

    I must be doing something wrong. My goal is to make a playable 400K 3.5 inch disk of the Infocom Trinity game for my original Mac that has 512K ram. I've dowloaded the disk image for the Trinity game and can run this disk image on mini vMac, but when I transfer the disk image to my FloppyEmu...

    SCSI floppy drive for Mac SE/30?

    Here is what’s up with my floppy drive: I have a Mac SE/30 with Rominator II and SCSI2SD drive. I have a 1.44MB superdrive as the internal floppy drive. I can sometimes read an application or formatted disk, but most times after opening a file or writing a file to the disk the Finder shows an...

    SCSI floppy drive for Mac SE/30?

    That Iomega Floptical drive would work for me. Unfortunately, they are pretty pricey on eBay. Looked at the completed auctions and it appears I just missed a sale for it. Bummer. I’ll keep my eyes open for a motherboard for sale that works. Thanks.

    SCSI floppy drive for Mac SE/30?

    I have not had any success fixing my Mac SE/30 floppy drive interface. But I do have a working SCSI interface and SCSI2HD hard drive. I do have some original 3.5 inch 1.44MB diskettes that I would like to use on my SE/30 and am wondering if anyone has successfully interfaced a SCSI floppy drive...

    Mac SE/30 cannot initialize internal or external floppy drive

    I have a Mac SE/30 with Rominator II and SCSI2SD drive. I have a 1.44MB superdrive as the internal floppy drive. I can sometimes read an application or formatted disk, but most times after opening a file or writing a file to the disk the Finder shows an error that the disk "<disk name>" cannot...
