    Hello everyone.
    I bought this 128k with a 2 meg levco upgrade.
    Can someone here get me the disks for it?
    I know I can download the sofware, but the problem is that even my ancient IBM's have disk drives. I thought I had a case with a disk drive but I can't find it.
    I need:
    Disk Write (MacWrite 4.5)
    Paint (MacPaint 1.5)
    System Disk

    Can paypal

    I guess what I am saying is, the programs can be downloaded here.
    can someone put them on a 3.5" disk for me and send them? I don't have a floppy drive with internet connection.

    Hello, 128kmacintosh.

    I think this can easily solve your problem :)
    I have a friend (Kevin Rye) who runs a website specifically for what you need, custom disks for old Macs. I personally purchase all of my disks from him.

    I would send him an email to make sure that you order exactly what you need, first.

    The website is www.RescueMyClassicMac.com (They are $10 each and can be purchased with PayPal.)
    You can even order custom disks with multiple programs if you supply the images.

    (Note, the Macintosh 128k can only support 400k disks)

    P.S.
    I suggest purchasing a disk drive cleaning kit first, as if the drive is dirty, it can 'fry' the floppies you enter. You can find them easily on eBay. I will link one that seems reasonably cheap.
