ADTPro is sending garbled text when I try to send data to boot my Apple IIe, but it's consistent garbled text. Any suggestions?
I've an Apple IIe I'm trying to talk to, and recently purchased a Super Serial Card. Following the instructions on the site, I can get the "APPLE SSC:" prompt, but when I give the send/recieve commands from each machine, I get garbled text. It's always the same garbled text, however, which leads me to believe it might be a baud setting, although I'm using 9600 baud/"APPLE SSC:14B" commands. Different baud settings will make the characters different, of course, but also consistent. At 9600 baud the read when I try "Speediboot" out starts as follows:
]L2A PG$"52L2 !#HMJ
I'm mainly listing this in case someone might be able figure out if there's a bit rate way to translate from "CP" to "CALL -151".
Ways that make the situation more challenging:
-I'm using Windows 7 on a Dell Laptop
-I'm using Slot 1 on the Apple IIe board, the other slots are either taken or crowded out by other cards.
-I'm using this modem cable currently - I've tried both the "Modem" and "Terminal" settings on the card. This above text is with the card on the "Terminal" setting. The "Modem" setting does not seem to send any information.
-I also have an Airlink 101 Serial-USB converter to make the last connection to my laptop. This setup may be the problem, but these were the cables I had around at the time - could there be a Null-Modem/Serial Conflict? The drivers _seem_ to be OK (something I'm a little surprised by, myself).
The thing is, the whole process seems to be pretty close to working. My initial plan is to try another cable, followed by a different, non-Windows 7 machine, but is there some head-slapping element or setting I'm overlooking, given these symptoms? Would the other switches on the Super Serial Card have anything to do with this?
Thanks to all in advance!
