My ROM1 GS "ticks" in GS/OS, too. It's kind of annoying at first, but you get used to it. Does anyone know of a quick fix? -Greg

Will an Apple 3.5" drive (not unidisk) work with a Unidisk controller?

Or more precisely, a controller card labled "LIRON"

What Apple II are you trying to use it with? The only one I know of
that the Apple 3.5 drive works with is the IIGS.

Short answer - no.

The IIgs, IIc+ and the Superdrive card which replaced the "Liron" card
can all use Apple 3.5 drives.

The IIc and the Liron card can only use UniDisk 3.5 drives (or the
rare SmartPort hard drive).

Thanks for the info.  A couple of web sites were ambiguous on the subject.

Only a Universal Disk Controller will work the Apple IIgs drive. I
beleive it was made by Central Point  or something like that.

Take Care

are you still having smartport problems with your gs? have you tried
getting a cheap mac classic and networking it to your gs. let the mac
read the disks for the gs.

I was just looking to stick a 3.5" drive on my //e, since I don't need 
two on my GS.

Then you need either an Apple 3.5 Controller (aka "superdrive" controller), a
Universal Disk Controller (sold under the Central Point and Laser brands), or a
PC Transporter.

The PCT in Apple mode is pretty handy.

Greg,

You _are_ aware that your web site provides no obvious means of making offers 
on advertised items nor an e-mail address.  How does one contact you?

Well, as you apparently figg'rd out, if you click the 'e-mail me'
link.......
But, as I get very little response, maybe I've got  it wrong??
(works with Opera/Eudora,Firefox...I WIPED M$IE off my system LONG
ago)
