Im looking at this Apple IIe system to buy here in town.
It's a really good buy, lots of accessories and software original boxes and manuals, etc.
Problem is, I went there to test it tonight, and the duodisk was not getting power. I tried both ports on the computer, and it's an Apple DB-29 cable which had some pins missing.. (not sure if that makes a difference, it was only ~2 pins)
So next thing i tried, the guy had an apple II 3.5" drive. I connected that to the machine, and the duodisk into the 3.5 drive just for testing. The red light stayed glowing on the drive, but no disk activity.
Also, both red lights on the drive would come on for a split second whenever turning the machine on or off.
Any ideas? I really dont want to miss out on this system for something little like this.
