    Default Looking for any Apple II disk games or utilities

    Looking for a few Apple II 5.25" disk games and/or utilities for testing an Apple II Europlus I'm trying to fix. Maybe a test utility would be nice. Loose disks are fine as long as they are tested and can be loaded.

    Please PM me if you can help out.

    I have a couple of Apple Magazine Disks you can have for postage? I don't know what Mac they are for. They are 3.5in Floppy's still sealed.

    I have no way to test them, I don't own a Mac. Although I guess at a push I could try them on an Amiga via ShapeShifter.

    I don't think the Amiga could read them (except for the first few tracks), since Apple disks used varying RPM for different tracks.

    I have some Apple 3" DD disks with ClarisWorks on them. Have no idea whether they work since I cannot test them, but you can have one if you want something to test with.

    Thanks guys for the kind offers - one essential detail I forgot to mention: I'm looking for 5.25" disks as that's the drive I have for the Apple II.. OP edited now.

    Have you tried ADTPro? You can load a DOS into memory via the audio port or a serial port. Might be a way to roll your own disks.

    Thanks Im aware of that tool but my Apple II doesnt have a serial card, so thought getting disks is easier.

    Fair enough, but a serial port isn't strictly necessary, I assume you've also checked out http://asciiexpress.net/diskserver/readme.html where you can copy from WAV to disk?
