Wow, it's been quite a while since I was here! Hope everyone is OK, survived COVID as well as one could hope, and still enjoying the hobby!
So I have a IIc that I have taken out of the battered IIc case and would like it to run a longer disk drive cable. I believe that a Disk II cable will work, and it certainly seems to work just fine. However, the Disk II ALSO works (not just the IIc drive), which I found fascinating, though that is likely old news to you pros. :)
One thing, though. The Disk II will boot to DOS 3.3, etc. but when the drive is NOT in use, the IIc's disk use red light stays on. This is strange, to my mind. It is not the cable, as the IIc drive works just fine with it, and the disk use light stays off when the drive is not being accessed.
Anyone know why this would happen?
