says that IIsi's want 800K or SuperDrive external floppy drives. Is this because of an HFS vs MFS incompatibility?
However, is there any danger to the IIsi in hooking up an external 400k floppy drive (the kind used originally on the Mac 128?)
I don't need to do anything other than read from the 400K drive - as in to make disk images with Disk Copy 4.2 or to copy disks with Copy II Mac... whilst in System 6.0.8.
(This is for a data recovery project on marginal disks. We suspect that SuperDrives can't properly read the disks but 400k/800k drives might. I don't have any external 800k drives, but I do have a couple of 400k drives.)
