  1. I recently bought a 661-2048 floppy drive for my PDQ G3 PowerBook. I read everywhere on the internet that the PDQ floppy was the last SuperDrive one in a laptop, so I was very surprised to discover that my unit (marked 821-4156-A) doesn't read DD 800k floppies, not even through DiskCopy.

Thanks in advance!

Here are some photos of the setup: https://imgur.com/a/kSKLTTE The thing is that SCSI Tools from 1987 shows that SCSI id 4 is currently connected, but any other tool only shows up the motherboard on SCSI id 7 Here are some pics fro
