Also, has anyone ever used one of these--can it be used to expand the AppleWorks desktop? If not, I should probably stop trying to get the software for it and sell it instead.

My Erphi disks seem to be for a disk controller card. I've uploaded them to http://www.brutaldeluxe.fr/public/

Robert,

I don't speak German, but I took a look at the technical pages at the
rear of the manual you linked, and it is neither an Aux-Slot (e.g.
RamWorks) clone, which is for the IIe only, nor does it seem to be a
Slinky (e.g. RamFactor) clone.

Given that those are two of the three memory card types that AppleWorks
3/4/5 recognize out of the box (the other being IIgs expansion memory),
I think it may be tough to expand the AppleWorks desktop with them.

On the other hand, if it happens to be a clone of the bank-switched
Legend Industries 1 meg card, you might want to try and get a Legend
utility disk and see if they don't have a mod program to patch
AppleWorks 3 to use it. Or, get a copy of PlusWorks to use with
AppleWorks 2 and give it a try. Here's some docs:

<http://apple2online.com/web_documents/Plusworks%20WS.pdf>

Since you have a IIe, and are interested in AppleWorks, you can get an 8
Meg card from Garrett's Workshop for only $35.00 and AppleWorks 5.1 can
use 6 meg of it for Desktop. Just a suggestion, of course.

Antoine,

Merci beaucoup d’avoir cherché!

Vous avez raison, les disques que vous avez téléchargés étaient pour la carte de contrôleur de disque erphi. Je les ai enregistrés dans mes archives de disques locaux, juste au cas où. J’apprécie l’effort que vous avez fait.

-Robert

Hi Robert,
Thank you for answering in French :-)
I wrote to Tom, a German collector who provided me with Erphi materials for the Apple II Documentation Project. I also gave him the link to here.

Cheers,
Antoine

Thanks. Some of the Legend tools work, other don't. Thanks for the lead. I wasn't aware of Garrett's Workshop--ordered a card!

Robert,

I imagine you'll be happy with that Garrett's Workshop card. These
modern cards are really low-power designs that should run very cool.

Just in case you do want to use that card for a giant AppleWorks
Desktop, know that out-of-the-box AppleWorks 5.1 will use 3 Meg of it,
giving you about a 2 Meg Desktop.

But, I have patched 'APLWORKS.SYSTEM' to use 6 Megs on these new cards,
giving you about a 4 Meg Desktop.

The replacement file (and some background on the mods) are here:

All the best,
