  1. You mean like ciderPress? https://a2ciderpress.com/ You can use that to make a ProDos disk image. Can you provide a bit more info on what hardware you have?
  2. My guides includes links to hard drive images you can use with basilisk II, these hard drive images have stuffit expander already pre-installed, and you can install any other software you need in Basilisk II as a virtual mac to get yourself setup. Then transfer what you need to, using basilisk II, via floppy, or some other transfer method. I list several on my site. See the bottom of https://www.savagetaylor.com/downloads/downloads-macintosh/
  3. You should use something like basilisk ii on your Windows machine to setup you floppy disk image before you write it to a real floppy. http://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/01/19/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-using-basilisk-ii/
  4. If you install your SCSI2SD externally then file transfer is easy if you know the size of your partitions you can extract them from your SD card and edit the contents with Basilisk II. https://www.savagetaylor.com/2019/12/19/how-ive-setup-the-scsi2sd-that-i-use-in-my-lc-475/
  5. I should have a post up this weekend for ARA 1.0. testing now with my SE and 7.01. I have a post for 2.0. https://www.savagetaylor.com/2020/12/15/appletalk-from-windows-linux-osx-to-a-68k-macintosh-using-basilisk-ii-apple-remote-access-personal-server-ara-ps-and-a-usb-serial-null-modem-cable/
  6. I plan to write a guide this weekend, similar to what I wrote for version 2 already. https://www.savagetaylor.com/2020/12/15/appletalk-from-windows-linux-osx-to-a-68k-macintosh-using-basilisk-ii-apple-remote-access-personal-server-ara-ps-and-a-usb-serial-null-modem-cable/
  7. Apple remote access works with a null modem cable between your mac and a modern system running basilisk II. It lets you setup shared folders to exchange files between the systems.
  8. Hi Eric, did you put the ProDOS extension in your extensions folder? It's in the extensions folder of my bootable images and on the Apple IIe card's setup disks in the system folder. Without that your Macintosh system can't "see" ProDOS partitions and they won't mount on your desktop. When you say "any single partition that I made ProDOS that did not also have a mac partition never showed up", I assume you mean when you formatted a drive you had to have both prodos and mac partitions? For the 1k smaller I had the same issue, the max size for a ProDOS partition is 32,767KB not 32MB
  9. On the apple iie card software you'll find the prodos extension, you need that to work with prodos partitions.
  10. Some guides I've written that might help. https://www.savagetaylor.com/topics/oldcomputersandgames/apple_iie_emulator_card/
  11. For now you can do the full install yourself if you want using Basilisk II https://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/09/02/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-installing-the-full-version-of-system-7-5-5-or-6-0-8/ I'm debating updating my images to the full versions found on Apple's Legacy Software Recovery CD https://archive.org/details/AppleLegacyRecoveryOct1999, e.g: System 3.2: 1986/06, System 3.2 / Finder 5.3 / System Software 1.1, on a 32MB volume file for use with the FloppyEMU (called System 1.0 on the CD) System 4.1: 1987/04, System 4.1 / Finder 5.5 / S
  12. Glad to hear, I see in the pic that you have a 4GB card. My images currently max out at 2GB. Let me know if you want a 4GB version
  13. I'm also updating my MAME entry, once I've got that done you should be able to use it to initialize your CF card however you want. https://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/12/26/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-using-mame/
  14. Hi Challenger, you could try writing one of my pre-created drive images to your card to start with. It will give you a 2GB drive on your CF card and should boot. https://www.savagetaylor.com/downloads/downloads-macintosh/ Or, if you want to use something like balenaEtcher or DD to create an image of your CF card and send it to me via private message I can initialize it and send it back to you setup with an initial 2GB partition. In general you should be able to use your CF card the same way I do SD cards for the SCSI2SD.
  15. https://archive.org/details/macworld00unse_41/page/168/mode/2up TOPS FastTalk and FastBox Hercules Network Graphics Card TandyLink DynaTalk Will need to keep an eye out for some of these, hopefully someone with more electronics experience than me can figure out if the external clock could be used to speed up the null-modem connection.
  16. What system do you have and what size of CF card do you want to use? You could create an image file that is the size of your CF card and then use an emulator that supports drive images to initialize the file. I used SoftMac before, but it only supports up to 3GB files, I'm planning to update my blog entry on using MAME to initialize drive files (you no longer have to compress files), so it might let you initialize larger files.
  17. I plan to look in old mac mags on the archive to see what I can find about LocalTalk/Serial devices with external clocks.
  18. Is this one? https://www.carousell.sg/p/localtalk-appletalk-2-port-farallon-vintage-phonenet-adapter-for-apple-macintosh-computer-255517060/
  19. Not yet, I need to pick up a Raspberry Pi for this and to try RaSCSI. I've found a copy of ARA 3.0 that supports PPP, just waiting for it to show up in the mail to see what it can do. I'd seen the HTTP mount extension, will see what I can do with it. Will need to do some speed tests on different options at some point.
  20. So, I figured out a way to do something similar with Basilisk II, https://www.savagetaylor.com/2020/12/17/creating-an-internet-gateway-for-you-68k-macintosh-using-basilisk-ii-ara-ps-ipnetrouter-and-a-usb-serial-null-modem-cable/ Turns out Apple has software for "dialing in" to an apple talk network, that works fine with null-modem CLL files. Once connected via apple talk, I could use TCP/IP over appleltalk and IPnetrouter to setup a gateway through basilisk II. The benefit is Basilisk II becomes a node on my AppleTalk/LocalTalk network too for sharing files via AppleTalk.
  21. Did you figure out how to create an external clock? Since I figured out how to get AppleTalk over a null modem connection, I've been wondering how to increase the speed. My USB to serial adapter is 921.6kbit/s (115.2KB/s), way faster than the 57.6 kbit/s (7.2KB/s) my LC 475 does. I'm wondering if I could use an external clock to push the LC's end of the connection to a faster speed (limited by the CPU's ability to keep up of course) The 900 kbit/s (112.5KB/s) for the IIfx and Centris/Quadra AV thanks to their Input/output processor (IOP) ports is pretty close to the speed I'd l
  22. The SE only supports 800k, the SE FDHD support 1.44, which do you have? https://everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_classic/specs/mac_se.html https://everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_classic/specs/mac_se_fdhd.html
  23. So I got the next level working, TCP/IP over AppleTalk over a null modem using ARA PS and IPNetRouter on Basilisk II. You too can experience dial-up speeds in 2020... https://www.savagetaylor.com/2020/12/17/creating-an-internet-gateway-for-you-68k-macintosh-using-basilisk-ii-ara-ps-ipnetrouter-and-a-usb-serial-null-modem-cable/ Right now I've only tested my LC 475 that is directly connected using the null modem cable. Tonight I hope to test my SE to see if it can "surf through" my LC 475 across my LocalTalk network. I also want to try this with 7.1 and Apple's Internet Router softwa
  24. I've always just used the adapter with mine https://store.inertialcomputing.com/product-p/idc50f-db25f.htm Is was there a benefit of soldering on the DB25 connector vs. using the adapter?
