Hey guys... I'm having difficulties.
I'm trying to create some Apple /// boot disks using MacADT. I have an SE/30 running MacADT, connected to an Apple //c. I format the disk using the //c with the "INIT HELLO" command. I am able to successfuly copy //-series software .dsk files from the SE/30 to the //c using MacADT to ADT transfer.
So I downloaded the Apple3SystemUtils.dsk file from an FTP site, and other system disk files for the Apple ///. I transferred them in the same way to 5.25" floppies using MacADT to ADT (SE/30 to //c). However when I put these disks in the Apple ///, it won't boot. It just gives the error, "I/O Error" in the center of the screen (no other info). When there's no disk in the drive, it just says RETRY ;
Obviously the Apple //c uses a different disk format than the Apple ///. But how else am I supposed to get the SOS disks for Apple /// ???
Someone please help. E-mail or respond here thanks!
Also I tried something else which didn't work either. I used ProDOS to format the disk. This did not help. (Previously I was using DOS 3.3)
Also I downloaded and made a disk of ADTpro, and while I can run it under ProDOS, I cannot Receive from the SE/30 running MacADT. Though If I'm running DOS 3.3 and plain-old ADT, I can receive from MacADT. Is there a newer version of MacADT than 1.2.1, which would properly talk to ADTpro?
