Good afternoon all,
Well... I've got myself a bit of a quandry this afternoon. I am in the midst of an upgrade / restoration of a IIe Platinum and decided to add an Accelerator. It happened to be a TransWarp card in Slot 1. Now, little did I know that unless you set the switches on the card just so, the external disk drives will not operate correctly. I found out quick.
I decided to pull the TW and put in a ZIP Chip (8 Mhz)instead. This got me the same results. I had to reconfigure the ZIP for 50% (4 Mhz) and set slots 5, 6, and 7 in Normal Speed Mode.
By this time I am asking myself "Just what the hell is an accelerator card good for if it won't accelerate?!?!"
LOL I know it has to do with the crystal and the timing for the IIe.
So now, I am to the point that I am deciding whether or not I should use one at all.
Has anyone else dealt with this problem? Is there a solution? Will Batman and Robin save Commissoner Gordon from the Joker?
