My cousin have one of those knew Macs about 2 years old top, so i think it has those knew operating systems and CPU's and its different than the Macintosh Classic ones .
if i use his computer to go online and go to the websites where they have programs for old macs.
1. Can i just download them to the floppy drive on his unit , ???
would they change or get ultered because of the knew mac's are different than the old ones.???
2. can I then copy those to the Floppys, and then i would be able to use them on my Mac classic with no problem at all,
and without doing any modification and i dont need to be a computer Tech to do it.???
I have system 6.8 something on my Mac.
Iam unable to use Mac bull to copy files from my Pc to Mac, i keep getting errors, the file is missing......etc.
Can you help please.
sincerely Matt.

If you post the models of the new and old Macs it would make it easier to give a precise answer.

i got an imac with external, i discovered classics dont like thernet too much, it wont work for file transfers, it hangs after a while. You much get an external, but make sure to format as "Macintosh Standard File System" instead of "Macintosh Extended"

[ramble]With all of the "accent" in your typos, it sounds like you're speaking a different dialect of english. Maybe we can call our new understandable, yet "confusing" english, Ye Olde English...
