I'd like to hear more about this. I always used individual drives
(typically SA400 mechs) when I did Apple development. The IIe and
DuoDisk were too new and expensive for a low-budget shop like us
(but we did eventually support the //c _and_ the Apple mouse)

I have a DuoDisk but no cable. What pins were used? I think I _might_
have a cable that was sacrificed to the Amiga gods by having one of the
pins broken out of one end for use as a modem cable (since the Amiga puts
voltage on some of the pins). It was a stupid thing to do, but it was
more than 10 years ago when Apple stuff was underappreciated.

Anyone have an Apple part number for a DuoDisk cable? Will a 25-pin
straight-through work?
