1400cs Won't Read CR-RW

Recommended Posts

Kinda what it says.  I'm working on getting disk images to the 1400 to make 800k floppies for the Mac Plus, and I hit upon the idea of using a CD-RW in order to move stuff from the Mac Pro to the PB to the Plus. (Bridge Macs FTW.). I know the drive in the PB works, it loads up, say, the Warcraft CD-R I burned just fine.  I used Verbatim CD-RW, the only ones I could actually find in small quantity.  My CD-R spindle is Memorex (I've been using them to make games for the iMac and now the G3 all along.). 

 

CD-RW reads fine in the Mac Pro.  

 

Limitation of the PB? Weirdness with media? Getting an ether dongle later in the week for the PB so could set up some sort of network share (I legit have no idea how to do this between OS8 and High Sierra.). 

 

Thanks!

To my recollection, the PB 1400 drives were unable to read RWs. I’d say great plan...just use the CD-Rs. They are a few cents now.

 

P.S. - Can’t network 8 and High Sierra directly.

Ahh okay. Yeah I can burn one prolly :D 

I was gonna try and set up a rudimentary FTP on the Pro and FTP into it from the 1400, not try to make them talk directly over the LAN.  I have a hard time sometimes getting HS to talk to Sierra, let alone OS 8! 

 

Thanks!
