I have an Apple IIe, for which I lost my original drive. I bought a replacement off of eBay, which seemed to have been tested.
I have been trying to get up and running tonight, and though I was doing fairly well - I was able to, with ADTPro, INIT disks, format them, and load on several games. Then all of a sudden, an angry perpetual regggkgkgk - reggkgkgkgkg - regkkgkgkkgk sound when I popped in one of my freshly made disks. The floppy has been temperamental the remainder of the night - I've gone from not being able to boot, to booting from the ADTPro disk but not being able to list/format the disks without it hanging in perpetual soft spinning to a repeat of the regggkgkgk - reggkgkgkgkg - regkkgkgkkgk. I cleaned the head, and it is still angry and temperamental. Heck, now even worse, as now the ADTPro disk is no longer booting - just the familiar and expected ckckckckckck at boot, then a perpetual tick-tick-tick-tick after that. Damn!!
Here is my hardware rundown:
Apple IIe 607-0164-M
Super Serial Card 670-8020-A
Disk Controller 655-0101-B
80 Column/64K Expansion 820-0067-B
Apple 5.25 Drive A9M0107
I'm running the latest v2.0.0 ADTPro, and have been using newly bought 3M DS/DD disks.
