Question about which Macintosh Series used the //e Card (Apple II Emulator)

Can someone tell me which model Macintosh used the //e card , so that you can hook up a 5 1/4 floppy or a 3/4 diskette to bootup Apple II software? I can't remember if it was the Macintosh PLUS or Macintosh Classic?

Thanks :o)

I have about 5 of these cards. I have run them in the LC, LCII, LCIII, and I have an LC475 and the 475 runs the fastest.

I bought a whole bunch of Apple II and Mac junk from a lady here near my house and it had about 5 of these cards and about 8 of the Y cables in the cache. I purchased a few LCs off eBay and have all 5 of these cards running in various models of LC.

The software is downloadable and I use these for ADT. These are really cool. They don't run all Apple II software, but they sure run alot of it.

Thanks,
Jay

hmmm interesting , because the Mac was a Macintosh PLUS or a Macintosh Classic , either one , not quite sure , but I know there was a 3 1/4 floppy disk that had a emulator on it , and I was able to hook up a 5 1/4 drive :o) Once I booted up the emulator , it showed to familure Apple II at the top of the mac screen and drops to a DOS prompt. I was told also that the Macintosh Color Classic can use the //e card as well.

Thanks again.

Maybe a Mac SE/30, it has a PDS in it...

Not sure that is an LC-PDS slot, though. Maybe Patrick was remembering the 5-1/4" DOS disk and card you could plug into any other PDS-type slot, including the SE/30...

It would be in the same Category of Machine as the LC Macs.. The SE and SE/30 are limited to 8 MB RAM because of the Dirty-ROM Issues of the early Macs..
