If you have serial card you can transfer images and just about any files between your PC and mac. How ever u need a NULL modem adapter for all transfers.

: 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!
