View Full Version : Apple Peripheral-8 Cable
July 13th, 2012, 10:39 PM
I am trying to find an original peripheral-8 mini din 8 to DB9 cable (Apple part # M0815) to connect a Mac 512k to an imagewriter II. I purchased a knock off and I think it is faulty, so if anyone has seen an actual apple cable, please let me know.

Good luck finding an original cable. Cable to Go has been pretty reliable for me: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812196963&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA

Thanks - I have one that I purchased (not an original) and I cannot get a supposed known good imagewriter II to work, so the first thing I wanted to try (after upgrading the imagewriter driver to a system 6 version) was the cable. I find it difficcult to see how a cable of this nature could be wired incorrectly or just bad from a manufacturer, but I need to prove to the seller of the imagewriter that I have a cable that will work and since you have this, and it works, I will give it a go.

Actually, after closer review, the first link to New Egg is a Din 8 male to DB9 female, when what I need is a Din 8 male to DB9 male.

Well I suppose if you can't find a cable with a Male DB9. You could always try a gender changer. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200507
