Guys.

I am looking for an image of this disk.

It comes with the Apple II 3.5 Superdrive disk controller card.

It is mentioned in the manual on page 3.

I have been looking for it on Asimov and other sites but I cannot find it.

Can anyone help me out?

insanitor,

I'll take a look at my stash.

Would a disk (copy) be ok?

Whatever is convenient for you is ok with me. Smile

BTW: I no longer live in the same place now.

I moved.

I don't know if ADT would work either.

insanitor,

I checked my SuperDrive Disk Controller box this morning and there is no disk.
I looked at the packing sheet and a disk is not listed as one of the items in the box.
Then I looked at the SuperDrive Disk Controller Book and, just as you said, a disk is shown on Page 3.

It seems that I was short changed when I bought the Controller.
Everything else is there.

It also seems that I am unable to help you.

I am sorry for that.

6502enhanced can you help us both with a disk copy?

A copy would be appreciated.
I would gladly pay for the disk and shipping cost.

Tomorrow I will try to connect my superdrive to the IIe that I have connected via ethernet to my PC-I will let you know if a disk image is possible-if not I will pm you and send via mail.

It was possible to send the Image from the Apple IIe via ADTPro to the PC - so, please send me a PM with your Email addresses ...

Wouldn't it be good to upload the image to Asimov, as others might be intersted in that, too?

Just loud thinking.

I have the disk. It is strange how it seems to be a 1.44MB disk but it only has 800k of info on it?

Maybe to fit it all on a 800k disk.

I want to test it on ADT writing back to disk and if it works then I will upload it to Asimov.

That can't be what happened, can it?

The image you sent me is an 800k disk.

I copied the files from that disk to my superdrive onto a 1.44MB disk and used ADT which produced a 1.44MB disk image.

Because of this, I have no idea what size the original disk was, 800k or 1.44MB.

I have two images on my computer.

The one you sent me says 800k on my windows pc.

I then formatted a 1.44MB disk and copied the contents from the 800k disk onto the 1.44MB disk.

The new image from this disk I made says 1.44MB on my windows PC.

See what I mean?

I do not know which image is the correct one except to say that one has an extra 800k of space and one doesn't.
