VST SuperDisk driver for OS 9 (PowerBook G3 drive module)?
Does anyone have the driver/extension for OS 9 to use a VST SuperDisk drive? I cannot find this anywhere for the life of me.

Update: found it through Driver Guide (scammiest site evar), added it to Macintosh Garden.

What a hassle.

Kudos on uploading it. It's frustrating trying to find an old file, that was once easily available. I once tried to find an old game demo on OS 9 (Ghost Master) but it was long gone from all the original servers. And my old MacAddict discs began - the month after they distributed that demo. Heh.

Years later, I did find the international demo file. How big is Macintosh Garden willing to go? It's 100 MB.

Yeah, unfortunately, Macintosh Garden can't afford the storage or bandwidth to host large files. A lot of stuff is gone now because of MegaUpload getting shut down, and the people who originally uploaded it never provided a new copy.

Maximum file size, btw, is 400MB.

The thing that grinds my gears about Driver Guide is the fact that they force Windows users to use a very scammy "downloader" with a total of five attempts to trick you into installing crapware. If you switch your browser user agent to a different OS, you can download the file directly.

Thanks for posting this. I planned to use the Pismo to dump some floppies and I would have been stuck without these drivers.

No problem - I'm glad someone else got use out of my efforts. :)
