A Kryoflux courtesy of Christian Barstch.  Good bloke to chat to too about the old days of XCopy and his various trips to Anguila as a nipper when he was working for Cachet after school.  All because he sent in a list of 'how to copy game X using these parameters' and Cachet hired him.

The Kryoflux is a great piece of kit. I was using it to backup some Apple ][ disks the other day.

An Apple ][ Super Serial card. I've been after one for a while for use with ADTPro... can't wait for this thing to make it's arduous journey across the pond.

Yeah. I had enough of a problem finding one there. If I'd waited to get one from the UK I could be old(er) and grey(er) before one turned up for sale.

CFFA v3.0 for my Apple IIe - Does floppy disk images and hard disk images (both at the same time) from CF card or USB....... Might need to bring it to Snibston.. and also maybe get the CF interface in the RCM IIGS working now I understand this one.

Does that run off a floppy card or does it have it's own interface ? as my IIe has floppy card + drives but my II europlus has no cards at all....it doesn't even have a top case, and I had to make a PS/2 keyboard interface for it as it's own keyboard was knackered :(

Cheers.

Phill.

Its a standalone interface with its own ROM code and on board RAM for loading the images into etc.... very slick - not cheap though.

Please do. It's an evil b'stard.

We have the floppies. We have the PDFs.

Unfortunately, we also have a crash dump :(

A non-working 5.25" caddy with a non-working DVD-Writer.  Why?  Caddy will be used purely for hosting drives for my Kryoflux and the DVD-Writer will be stripped back to bits and the lens used (once I work out how to attach it to a magnetic ring) on the back of my phone as a super-duper macro lens :)   At 99p + delivery, it was worth.

Some C64 original disks (more targets for my Kryoflux) - almost forgot about the auction as was in the middle of a fight in Fallout 3.  Got there with 13 seconds to spare :)
