@dochilli Hey there! This is brilliant information and a great help to a classic Mac noob such as me! I'll be buying a v5.1 from here! Does this look alright to you? I only have one Macintosh, so I won't be swapping drives or anything like that. I have 10 unformatted floppy disks on their way, so I'll get them formatted and working also! Thank you for all your help and patience!
@BadGoldEagle Hey! Thanks for the information! I have a just one questions, if that's not too much trouble! When you refer to "blank image", do you mean a blank OS (e.g. System 7) or do you mean a blank, unformatted SD Card? Then you use that same SD card later to use terminal to install the OS and use in the SCSI2SD for the Macintosh Boot disc? Thanks!
@LaPorta Hi there! Thank you for your reply, it's really helpful. The system is currently operating, and I took a look through the Utilities file on it. There are some apps for this purpose (Apple SC HD, Disc Backup, Disk Utility, and a few others from 3rd Party devs). Would those work?
Also, this is the SCSI2SD v5.1 device I'm going to be buying. You mentioned that I should get a 25-50 pin adapter. For an extra £6, I can get a 25-pin connector built into the SCSI2SD board. Would you recommend this or do you think I should get an adapter? Here's the SCSI2SD I'm looking at: https://amigakit.amiga.store/product_info.php?products_id=1264
When you say "formatted", do you mean after you connect the SCSI2SD to the external SCSI port on the back of the Mac using the method you mentioned above? Thank you!
Sorry for the questions! I'm really new to this and just want to make sure I get this right! Thank you for your patience and your help! Enjoy the rest of your day!
