I just got a wonderful, like-new //c a couple weeks ago and just ordered a 6FT IIc to ImgWriter I cable to connect it to my PC. I also bought a 10FT DB9M to DB25F serial cable for the conversion. Is that too long? 6FT may just barely reach in my current configuration.

Also, has anyone else had luck using ADT on a //c? Is it possible to transfer .DO images as well as .DSK? If not, is there a program that will let me convert .DO's to .DSK's?

I have a copy of ProTerm 3 on the way (didn't know about ADT when I won it on ebay). Does anyone out there use ProTerm for transferring binaries to and from a PC? Entire disk images? I read about a PRODOS emulator for the PC... has anyone found that to be helpful for maintaining Apple files across this serial network?

I've amassed quite a collection of links to various FAQ's about these things, and they are EXTREMELY helpful, but I just want to be prepared.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated... from one Apple veteran to another ;) I'm sure my next onslaught of questions will be about various assemblers. I've been writing sound routines using the mini-assembler (gak).

Thanks all!
