I got this in a lot with an Apple IIc and I was wondering if they make an adapter so that I can connect my IIc to my PC for use with ADTPro...

Thanks,
Roger

Maybe. if this is a printer cable, you might be able to use a MiniDIN8-USB adapter. Something like this:

but it (the USB adapter) would ultimately be more expensive than going with standard parts.

Wow, looks like I should just forget this cable and buy a null modem cable for $20... thanks for the insight!
