I subscribe hardly anywhere. But this sounds familiar to me. Throughout the nineties I had to handle PC-Word-files again and again. Some of them were readable on the LC (7.1).
A change of the floppy drive and PC Exchange (really, PC Ex made reading PC disks possible, but only in combination with a new drive) gave my setup a slight 'compatiblity',
But in a way it felt good not to be another grey in the crowd...

Well, I read it (by using the link), and wanted to comment there,
but I was forced to do it this way then.
There's always more than one possible solution.
Can it be the earliest LC's had drives not capable of PC disks ?

All LCs came with 1.44MB SuperDrives, which could read/write DOS disks. The PC Exchange program was the opener utility Apple supplied, not the full translator like MacLinkPlus. Feel free to email me directly if you wish to continue: adam AT
