Occasional droppings related to old technology, media and hoarding issues.
I uncovered this while sorting out all the Apple // stuff. It has no other port on it.
Corvus made drives for the Apple II.
Yeah, I remember them in the Apple // programming lab in high school. The Apples were networked together and ran Constellation to share the hard drive.I have three of the drives upstairs, no controllers or cables or software. This thing, though...it's just got the 9-pin connector and some DIP switches. At first I thought it was a modem but there are no other ports.
Hi Jason, it looks like some kind of backup device. Remind me Corvus Constellation for Apple ][. It was 5MB storage device, but I'm not sure. If you look inside, you can find it! :-)
Hi Synestheia - I traded this piece off some time ago but I found out it was a (rare) Corvus interface for the early Macintosh computers - the ones old enough to have 9-pin serial ports on them.
