LC III modem port to RS-232 (Bootsrap)

Recommended Posts

Hi, Im looking for a LC III modem port to RS-232 cable so I can transfer disk images from a PC to my Apple IIGS. I found this site http://retrofloppy.com/products.html but after calculating their shipping there is no way I am paying that. They want almost $60 to ship it to me in Canada (it should only be about $15) thats highway robbery!

Hi, Tony - don't believe the automatic calculator, it's notorious for over-estimating international shipments. You've done the right thing by making contact via email.

Last one I got was a din8 to de9 adapter in which I added my own crossover cable

 

I think it cost 2 bucks on eBay... But then the cost of the cable ( which I made one out of connectors and a Ethernet cable.. For about the same price as a ready made one lol but I had the parts)

 

I'm the end I probably spent about the same on the whole thing. I had to fiddle with.making it, but I can also use it on my msdos machine
