MacBottom breakthrough

Recommended Posts

Good news! 
I think I may have found some drivers / utilities!
Go to http://vintageapplemac.com/154-classic-mac-survival-kit

And download:
http://vintageapplemac.com/files/misc/ClassicMacSurvivalKit.sit
Under Hardware, you will find:
MacBottom 800K.img.sit
MacBottom MFS.image.sit


I was able to convert the 800k file,
but not the MFS file.
…And I haven’t tested or used either one, yet.

 

If you still have your drive, let me know what your experience is.

It'll be a week and a half, before I get everything together, to give it a try..

If I get there first, I'll let you know.

Good luck!

Wow too bad it came a year too late. 

 

I got rid of it after I knew I would never get it running again. And yet, here we are... 

 

THIS is what turns me into a hoarder and not want to throw anything out! GRRRRR. 

 

I did keep the MFM drive though just in case a HyperDrive unit fails as it fits.

That's too bad. I know how ya feel..

I guess it'll be there for the next person looking for it.

I'll still report whatever happens, when I get my MacBottom serial drive & 512kE together...

As a side note, have you guys compiled and installed the MFS Lives! filesystem extension for Mac OS X? I have it running. It's very useful; you can just double-click MFS disk images and they'll mount read-only.
