  1. Wow, this is so amazing! I’d also like to build one of these prototype SE boards. - Alex
  2. A number of pages are on the Internet Archive, here: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://lam.kilu.de/lam2//* - Alex
  3. Have you made any more progress on this? This is a really great idea, and there are a ton of machines lacking easy access to Ethernet. - Alex
  4. Actually, the IIc can support SmartPort drives (IIgs-style) natively, and so can the IIe, given an appropriate controller card. Having now read the other thread (sorry that I missed that, earlier), and it sounds like you're already on the path. Again, thanks so much for such a great device! Thanks! - Alex
  5. It truly is an amazing device. I've used mine to boot a friends 128k Mac (that I replaced _all_ the RAM in!), and my Mac IIci. What versatility! BMOW, have you considered making your drive Apple IIe/c/gs-compatible? - Alex
  6. Just to note, I've tested the latest firmware, and it's absolutely perfect. Thanks so much! - Alex
  7. Indeed, my searching seems to indicate the same. I also found this program, which seems to work well, though I have only tested it a bit: http://sunsky3s.s41.xrea.com/dmgconverter/index.html It seems to create valid raw images, given a variety of formats, fairly easily. I also ran across an old hint that additional formats can be enabled for Disk Utility, using the following: $ defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility advanced-image-options -bool true In my (limited) testing, on 10.8.5, it does enable the formats, but trying to create a Disk Copy 4.2 image from an existing UDIF
  8. I will look in to finding the Disk Copy 6.x format documentation. As to directly running Disk Copy, that's a no go, as Mini vMac doesn't really emulate a floppy drive. Actually, that seems to be a shortcoming of all of the Macintosh emulators. For most purposes, it doesn't really matter, but for image creation and writing, it is somewhat critical. I have tried Basilisk II, MESS, Mini vMac, and Sheepshaver. Thanks!
  9. Very close. Now, I just need to figure out how to get from Disk Copy 6.x to .raw. Thanks for the pointer!
  10. Yep, that's definitely useful, so long as you aren't trying to convert disk images from another format, to Disk Copy 4.2.
  11. All I can say is, what a fantastic product! On a side note, how does everyone make DiskCopy 4.2 images? I assume that you use a real Mac with a real superdrive? I've been trying, with little success, to find an alternative. This would be especially handy since Apple has many Disk Copy 6.x images on their HTTP archive. - Alex
  12. And to reply to myself, again (I can't edit posts more than a couple minutes old, for some reason), I resoldered the CPLD, and now the board works perfectly! Thanks again! I'm really looking forward to the code release that supports folders. - Alex
  13. And now I can't replicate the PH2/3 GND short. Odd. All of the other signals check out OK, though. - Alex
  14. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm still checking everything, but I found that PH2 and PH3 are shorted to GND. Is that right? It appears that the pins on the board are connected, for those, on the pads near the edge of the board, in Eagle. Thanks! - Alex
