Macintosh Floppy Emu available from BMOW

Floppy disks got you down?  Here is a great solution, I'm ordering mine soon (So many retro toys and books it is going to be a great Christmas)from the web site:"Love old Macintosh computers? Floppy Emu is a prototype floppy disk drive emulator for vintage Macs. It uses an SD memory card and custom hardware to mimic a 400K, 800K, or 1.4MB 3.5 inch disk drive and floppy disk. It plugs into the Mac’s external or internal floppy connector, and behaves exactly like a real disk drive, requiring no…See More

Archiving my Floppy Disks

Finally (and about time too), I got around to setting up my KryoFlux Disk USB Floppy Controller.

http://www.kryoflux.com/

The USB controller has been sitting in its box for over a year now, and the spare 1/2 day arrived, and I hooked it up to my miniServer.  Previous attempts to us my QuickSilver2000 PowerMac didn't work, as the KryoFlux program would only support USB drivers under 10.6+ Intel Macs.  Although the windows…

Recent Aquisitions

Hello everybody. It's been a while since I posted. Nothing much interesting happening on my projects bench, but have picked up some new bits.



  • non working Tangerine iMac

  • iBook Graphite
  • PowerBook G3 Wallstreet PDQ
  • HD20 - with cable chopped off

The HD20 is the interesting one, just picked it up locally on eBay. It is minus the interface (floppy) cable that has been chopped off. I'm assuming that the cable from a spare 400K external… Continue

512K M0001WP Macintosh welcomed to the family

Picked up a 512K Mac this weekend, came with extended keyboard, mouse, and external FDD, but no software.



There was a floppy stuck in the external drive, and I had to open up the case and degunk the lubricant to free up the release mechanism, but unfortunately the disk was not bootable (the label says it's an excel data disk).



Is there any way I can get hold of systems/software disks for my 512K? My PBDuo230 won't power up, so I can't download an "archive" copy of… Continue

Awesome!  I use to not like Macs, I didn't understand the operating system.   I'm still not up on  a lot about the older OS's, but I can't believe how awesome OS X is!!  I hope Lion's not the end.
