Mark Percival has updated his DiskMaker 8 disk image utility, which offers faster 5.25″ disk formatting, the ability to boot from your newly-created disk when it’s finished writing, and support for DOS 3.3 volume numbers.
DiskMaker 8 is an 8-bit version of Eric “Sheppy” Shepherd’s GS/OS program, DiskMaker. Developed by Mark Percival, DiskMaker 8 is a utility to convert disk images back to physical media. The intention is to bring the ease of use and functionality of Sheppy’s program to the 8-bit world, including an optional mouse interface. Requires a 128K Enhanced Apple IIe, IIc, IIc Plus or IIgs.
Rich Dreher has posted a notice on the CompactFlash Adapter for Apple II web site that the second run of cards has sold out, but that there’s enough interest that he plans to do a third run of cards. The cards should be available sometime this winter (in the December timeframe).
