Connecting the first drive

Figure 1-12 Connecting an additional disk drive

Follow these steps to connect additional disk drives to you Apple IIGS.

1. Make sure the computer is plugged in and its power is switched off.
Double-check to make sure that the power switch is set to O for Off before you connect any disk drives. If the power has been on, switch off the computer and wait at least 30 seconds before you connect a drive.

Connecting a drive when the power is on, or within 30 seconds of switching the power off, could seriously damage your disk drive and your computer.

2. If necessary, use a nail file or thin screwdriver to remove the plastic plate that covers the port on the hack of the disk drive you just connected.
