Weird issues on a couple II's...
Firstly, am dealing with an original Apple II. Fire it up, it shows the usual garbled characters, then the monitor prompt. Hit reset. Another monitor prompt appears just below it. The rest of the keyboard is unresponsive. Machine has 32KB of RAM installed in it, and does exactly the same thing whether or not there are any cards in it. Also is the same with the shift key mod installed or reverted to stock. Other than this issue, and the usual iffy video out jack, it seems to be a solid machine with just the usual layer of dust from sitting for nine years or so. I do have a couple II+ machines lying around that I could swap parts back and forth with. Might fiddle around with that either tomorrow or early this coming week.
Secondly, I am having issues getting a Unidisk 3.5 recognized on my Enhanced //e with a Laser UDC. Do I need to dumb down the Unidisk 3.5 by turning it into an Apple 3.5 Drive before the UDC will recognize it? It's been a good 26 years since I last read the A+ magazine that showed all the various floppy drives that would work on a II series machine, so I'm a bit rusty. Bought the drive in 2005, a few months after I bought the //e from someone in Oregon, but never was able to source the actual Liron card for it.
Anyway, been awhile since I've visited the forums - might've been late 2004, early 2005. Was pleasantly surprised that I remembered my login info.
