Apple ][c ADTPro transfer issue

Hey, all. I have an Apple IIc I'm trying to get some disk images for with ADTPro. I can get the Speedieboot to send over the client, but I can't pull off any images after that. Half the time it says "host timeout" and the other half the time I get it to start pulling off the client and it freezes after two blocks and I get the message "Image transfer aborted" on the host (An IBM A31 with a serial null modem cable, made to the specs on the ADTPro site for an Apple IIc null modem).

Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

Hi there - it looks like your A31 has a native serial port. So retro! Wink Clearly you're in the right place.

If you would, try the ADTPro-v.r.m.zip version I have posted in testcase:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/adtpro/files/adtpro/Testcase/

Do please report back if that works better for you. There's a fix for native serial ports in there that I think will help you.

Thanks for the prompt response! I'll give it a go when I get home from work later tonight.

Ok, great. You're the third positive confirmation, so looks like I'll be keeping that fix. No ETA on a release yet, though... I'd suggest you use what you have until such time as 2.0.1 comes out.

Re: Apple ][c ADTPro transfer issue

I too always had trouble with ADP pro on my IIC... I can get it eventually but every once in a while it hangs. I find the transfer is more reliable on Windows 8.1 than Windows XP. It almost always hangs before the halfway point, if it gets past that then 98% chance it will finish without issue. I did an experiment once, and I recopied the data from one disk to another before transfer (essentially defragging the disk) and the new copy went without a hitch... the old original I couldn't transfer for anything... (mines a Rom 255)

Re: Apple ][c ADTPro transfer issue

Doing serial transfers on my computers with ADT never fails unless there is a problem with the disk image itself. With Ethernet, that's another story. I did buy a new PCIE Serial and Parallel combo card but I have not tried it with that. It seems to have new additional capabilities in the control panel but I do not know how it would affect ADT. It would be interesting to find out.

I am not sure if this is a placebo effect... but I found that pounding on the ENTER key gets it going sometimes when it stalls...
