    .Dsk to 3.5" floppy...color classic to IIc+ ?

    You can write prodos disks on your Mac, the software for the apple iie card comes with a prodos extension. I include the extension on my image files. https://www.savagetaylor.com/downloads/ You do not need the apple iie card for the extension to work.

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    Since you have 8.1 working under basilisk, use that as your primary disk (boot), use mine as the secondary. Delete the system folder off mine. Copy the 8.1 system folder over, and run system picker to "bless it".

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    HFV files don't have the mac driver and partition table. I discuss that on my blog http://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/05/28/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-creating-your-own-boot-able-disk-image/. I'm not sure what you mean by the "Unix root folder". Do you mean the icon pointing to you OS X files?

    MacSD - new SCSI SD card emulation tool

    The SCSI2SD files have both the mac driver and partition information in the file. The floppyEMU file doesn't include either, that file is just a single partition and is used with the floppyEMU's HD20 emulation. I'll update my site to say my SCSI2SD images work with MacSD

    MacSD - new SCSI SD card emulation tool

    What type of images does this support? Full drive, e.g. multiple partitions in one file, or one partition per file? I looked in the manual and wasn't sure. I'm Steve from http://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/01/05/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-using-a-scsi2sd-adapter/, and I was wondering if my existing SCSI2SD or floppyEMU images would work
  6. So what was the purpose of the memory upgrade boards for the Macintosh Plus? Were they simply cheaper than buying the 1MB SIMMs? https://archive.org/details/macworld00unse_z38/page/144/mode/2up I'm working on a new entry for my site that lists the different accelerators for the Plus (linking to reviews/adds when I find them), and am debating listing memory addons too, but I don't know if many people use them.

    Color Classic SCSI2SD issue

    Have you tried http://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/01/05/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-using-a-scsi2sd-adapter/
  8. I have 2 Novy 30s for the plus, both installed with the power supply mod, you might have this one: https://archive.org/details/MacUser8803March1988/page/n125/mode/2up

    Backing up 80MB HDD to ZIP

    Actually that is all you need to do. Then you can make an image of the disk and read the files of the image in basilisk

    Setting up a soldering station

    Thanks everyone.
  11. I have a fair number of old boards I want to recap, instead of sending them out I've decided I want to learn how to do the work myself. What would people suggest as a good initial setup to get me started? I did a search and found a lot of mentions of doing the work, but I didn't find a thread where people discussed what they use to do the work.

    Networking Color Classic to modern MacOS X

    Some routers will not recognize these old 10Mbps cards. My setup https://www.savagetaylor.com/2020/05/10/macplus-on-my-network-using-scsi-to-ethernet/

    PowerBook 145B CAN run System 7.0.1

    You can have both systems on the same drive and use system picker to choose between them. https://www.savagetaylor.com/downloads

    Help with my Macintosh Classic

    If you are looking for a gear for you floppy, and it's the one that typically goes.... there is a small gear made of softer plastic that breaks down over time. The thread I've linked to has suggestions of where you can buy a printed replacement. https://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.A0.H0.Xeject+gear.TRS5&_nkw=macintosh+gear&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_osacat=0&_odkw=floppy+gear https://www.shapeways.com/product/M84R343FR/4-x-gears-for-macintosh-512k-vintage-floppy-drive (I got mine from here, but that doesn't seem to be for sale anymore) https://www.shapeways.com/product/27DNUVPJA/replacement-floppy-drive-gear-for-macintosh-comput?optionId=148365838&li=marketplace
