Macintosh SE to SE/30 Upgrade: Drive Issues< Back to Tech Info Library Index
Article Created: 6 December 1989
I have a Macintosh SE with two floppy drives. Can I upgrade to a Macintosh SE/30 with one Apple SuperDrive (formerly Apple FDHD) and one 800K floppy drive?
It is not possible to upgrade a Macintosh SE with two floppy drives to a Macintosh SE/30 with one SuperDrive and one 800K floppy drive. This is because the Macintosh SE/30 logic board has only one internal floppy-drive connector. When upgrading a dual floppy drive Macintosh SE, you must remove one of the internal floppy drives.
It is possible to upgrade to the SuperDrive without also upgrading to the Macintosh SE/30 logic board. In this case it would be possible to retain both floppy drives.
