travistouchdown posted a topic in Apple I, ][, /// & LisaI know this is a dumb question, and i'm sure a i'll remember after the first post. But how does a functioning daisy chain work/function best again? So the primary disk drive is plugged into the computer, and the second floppy drive is plugged into the first...but when you fire up the computer it only reads off the first correct? If there was a program with a disk two, would you have to hit a button or key sequence for it to run the second disk. For example on an apple II, IIe, c, or gs. If anyone is up for it please remind me how best to utilize the second daisy chained drive. I guess on the GS, or computers with a GUI, both discs are visible and you can choose to run either one, so what about earlier Mac Dos systems? Thanks in advance!
I recently started a Quadra 630 project, and one of the main project goals is to convert the internal floppy drive to external. Someone mentioned: "you could always plug in an external floppy", but (since the Q630 lacks a floppy port) I have not found any external floppy drives that would work with a Quadra 630 or similar Mac. My question is: DO external floppy drives exist for 68k Macs without a floppy port? If they do exist, what were the manufacturers? Did they use SCSI?
