I have an Apple IIe, and an Apple IIGS, my questions are for the Apple IIGS I have nailed down everything I needed to know about the IIe.
1. Can I make a boot disk with a 3.5" floppy and an emulator on my PC or MacPro (don't know if the USB floppy drive will work on the MacPro, but I have several PCs that have or can have a 3.5" floppy drive on board, or via USB)
2. I have an adapter that I bought for one of the colored CRT iMac, CRT blew, and I was able to hook the old style Apple 15 pin port to a VGA monitor, does the IIGS have a different set up or is it the same as the earlier CRT iMacs?
3. There is an 8-pin socket on the logic board (I think it was 8-pin) it had "Game" silk screened below it; what goes in that socket?
4. Will any of my IIe stuff work with the IIGS (ram card, etc.)
I apologize in advance, but I'm a CoCo, Commodore, PC guy since the 80's and don't work with a lot of Apple. I'm trying to set this IIGS up with a serial null modem to a PC to recover some files for a friend that both parents are since passed, and the stuff was written in what I'm assuming was an Apple word processor on either a IIGS or IIC (mentioned something about a clone Apple system). I tried reading them with my ZoomFloppy and a Commodore floppy drive with no success.
