    I got a VersaWriter unit but have no documentation nor software for it. Been searching in vain online for the materials, so I thought I would ask the community here if anyone either has the documentation &/or software or know where I can get it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Ken

    ZIP Technology ZIP Drive

    I just received an Apple IIGS with a ZIP Technology ZIP Drive in it. This drive has a Conner CP2044PK hard drive which will not boot (although the drive spins and spins). I've been trying to find information about this device - software, user manual, etc. - and have turned up empty-handed so...

    I recently acquired a small lot of Apple ][+ systems and, to my pleasant surprise, there was an Apple ][ in the lot, serial number 3884. There is a small article with photographs available on www.Apple2Online.com if anyone is interested in seeing it. Anyway... the system boots fine but there...

    Looking for an EDD+ Plus Card

    As some of you may already know, Neil Shapiro of CompuServe fame recently donated 400+ floppies to Apple2Online.com. I have been going through them to create .DSK archival copies to post on the system for everyone to enjoy. I went through about 200 floppies, and of those, I was only able to...

    I sat down today to start work on getting some of the 485 disks that Neil Shapiro (of CompuServe fame) donated to A2OL this week. I have two CF cards - one 128 MB, the other 256 MB, that have been having serious problems in getting them to function on the CFFA3K. I'm hoping someone can give me...

    I acquired an EDD+ card with cable and I am having a bit of a difficult time getting it connected. I have the manuals etc for the card, but it talks only about connecting the EDD+ with a Disk ][ drive and controller. The only thing is says in the manual (that I could find) is that if you are...

    CFFA3K Card Up on eBay

    After a lot of thought, I decided to put the brand new CFFA3000 card I purchased last year and never used up for sale on eBay. I had purchased 2 of them, one for my IIGS, the other for my IIe, but I was able to get a MicroDrive Turbo for my IIGS, so that left me with one extra CFFA3K card. I...

    New Mystery Card

    Does anyone have any idea what this card is for? Not much identification on the card save for "ALF 10-4-1A" on what I believe is the bottom of the card, and "QUARK" on the opposite side. Came to me with the cable affixed as indicated in the photo. Ken www.Apple2Online.com

    Using an LCD monitor on a IIGS

    I know this has been discussed in the past, but I can't seem to find the threads (probably ignorance on my part). I have a board on my IIGS which allows me to connect the IIGS to an LCD monitor. The results are acceptable, but still not very good. On eBay, there is a seller who is selling a...

    65816 Replacement Chips

    I need to find a replacement CPU for a IIGS motherboard I have here, and the only thing I can see to find is W65C816S which operates at a maximum of 14 MHz. So, my dumb question of the month is: Can this chip be used in a stock IIGS? Is the CPU like memory - you can use a faster-rated chip but...

    CF Extenders

    I posted a similiar post on www.Apple2Online.com and thought I would do the same here in case there is any interest. With the popularity of the MicroDrives and CFFA3K cards, which allow you to use CompactFlash cards as drives, I'm wondering if there is any interest in CF Extender cables. I use...
