  • Kennect
  • Kennect Rapport drivers (122 k)
  • Kennect Rapport 1.1 Drivers (old, with installer) and the newer 7.1 driver (possibly last version, no installer).
  • The Kennect Rapport is a small dongle like device that attaches to the floppy drive port of an early Mac
    (like Plus, SE, SE/30). Easily recognizable by the small size, the port underneath and blue screw knobs.
    The Kennect Rapport by itself and attached to a 800K floppy drive can read/write/init 720K PC disks,
    as well as an advanced 1.2 MB format.

    When used in conjunction with the Kennect 2.4 Drive it adds HD read/write/init capabilities to any Mac
    (including Plus/SE) as well as access to HD PC disks. It can also format HD to 2.4 MB in size. Probably
    the best thing is to be able to read HD disks on a non-HD Mac.
