Hi,

I sold Apple products from 1982 until 1996. I still have a ROM 3 IIgs and would love to get a copy of the store demo disk that was made to draw attention to the IIgs in stores when played through the Bose roommate Apple speakers.

I have seen disk images of it online, but so far no luck getting anything to work. If anyone has copies or can make me copies, please let me know.

Best Regards,

Jim

I thought you sounded familiar... I see we left you high and dry over here:

The images that folks pointed you to over there are a little tricky to unpack. The easiest thing for you to do would be to instead download and unzip this:

http://mirrors.apple2.org.za/ftp.apple.asimov.net/images/gs/demo/SalesDemo.2mg.zip

That will let you run the images in an emulator. If you want physical floppies, then you're either in the business of transferring via serial, relying on the kindness of strangers, or using a service to create them for you:

Am I mis-remembering? I thought the IIGS store demo (I assume we're talking about the original Jazz demo) didn't work properly on the ROM 3.

It is the Jazz demo... and you might be right about the ROM03. Being too lazy to make a real disk, I see it boots and runs fine in GSport as a ROM01 machine; but ROM03 crashes right away. TDNBW.
