Welcome Apple II Fan to the Apple II Disk Server, where you can download over 1500 disk images directly to your Apple ][+ or //e disk ][ drive at 9600 BPS!!! Be sure to check out our sister site: Apple Game Server Online!.

Need help? Then please watch this video demo.

There are four download options: HIFI or 8KFI with FORMAT or NO-FORMAT. 8KFI is a bit slower (~15 seconds), but should work on all systems. If HIFI does not work for you, then it never will on that system, use 8KFI. Use NO-FORMAT if your disks are already formatted (it will save you about 30 seconds). For offline use right-click AIF or WAV and download.

Disk downloads take about 3 minutes and write to slot 6 disk 1. The most common cause of error is external sounds being piped into the download stream (e.g. mail alerts) and low volume--crank up the volume and try again.

Can't find what you are looking for? Then check out Virtual Apple and Asimov. You'll also need this: ADTPro.

Send feedback, bugs, questions, etc... to: datajerk@gmail.com. See the CHANGE LOG for updates (below).
