Iomega Zip Package v4.2 (948 k)

Iomega Bernoulli Driver v3.53 (547 k)
Iomega Floptical Driver v4.0.4 (49 k) The Iomega Floptical SCSI disk drive reads and writes both 1.4MB 3.5 inch floppies (handy on 800 KB only
Macs like the Mac Plus) and special 20 MB Floptical disks.
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.
NEC Speedycd v5.31a (1101 k)
Latest MAC driver v5.31a for NEC drives, as of 8/27/96.
This driver supports all macs running sys 6.08 up.

Pioneer CLD 4.03 (120 k)
Custom CLD 1.8 for Pioneer DRM-1804X
version of FWB CD-ROM Toolkit (712 k) - Works great with the Pioneer changers.
Further details about Pioneer CD, CD changer Drives/Drivers: Click
- FWB CD-ROM Toolkit supports the Pioneer CD-ROM changers.
Even the old 2.3.1 version works fine with the DRM-60x series with Mac OS
9.1 on a Powermac 7300. The Juke Mounter is a bit annoying since the default
settings are to mount all CDs at startup and to use a large amount of hard
drive space for caching. It still complains about running out of cache space.
I turned the caching all off and also set it to not mount anything at startup.
Rodime 2.03 (25 k) - Rodime's disk formatter and driver-installer.
This driver is capable of partitioning a Rodime disk into multiple volumes
Smart Format, Image, Restore (744 k)

Manager is the only way to format, test, or change the SCSI ID of the drive (no switch-selectable SCSI ID on these!)
