I'm trying to run a number of old software titles on an Apple 1 (Mike Willegal's Apple 1 Mem Test, Microchess, Wumpus among other). I have a number of components which I belive should let me do this but I'm having trouble with one step. My preferred source for the data is a CFF1A card plugged into the expansion slot of the A1. From my reading of the CFF1A manual, I believe that, when hooked up to the A1, the CFF1A can format the CF card in ProDOS format from its own firmware. I also understand that a program called Ciderpress running on the PC can move the programs onto the CF card.
Can anyone who has experience with Ciderpress shed some light on how this step is done? (Transferring the software onto the card in a manner that will be readable) I've reviewed the Ciderpress documentation found on their site but it seems primarily oriented toward Apple II use.
In researching, I've found a number of references to .po images, but the software that I'm trying to run are .txt files with hex code. Is there a step that needs to be done to convert these hex code programs into the .po format?
Any help much appreciated.
