I've got two Disk 2 drives that I'd like to get up and running, but I'm a little unclear as how to proceed.
The problem is that both drives came without cables, so ordered those in ahead of time. I was expecting to hook these up to a Disk 2 controller card. However, the Apple IIe that showed up with these drives has an I/O controller with a different dsub connector. So given that I'm running 5v and 12v through those cables, I'd like to make sure I hook them up correctly.
It's been kind of hard to find a definitive source the explain this, so I'm looking to get some input.
Basically, can I connect the Disk 2 drive to that dsub (given the proper adapter) or do I need a Disk 2 controller card to do that? I believe the I/O controller deals with the more advanced cousins of the Disk 2, but I thought it would still work with the Disk 2s if they were daisy-chained.
