The Apple III Plus has a DB25 connector for the external disk drive I/O port. The standard Disk III has a 26-DIP flat connector on the cable. To use the standard Disk III with an Apple III+, you must acquire a Disk III Cable Adapter. The service part number for this cable adapter is 655-6101. Future Disk III drive cables will have a DB25 connector and will need no adapter. CAUTION: Before connecting a Disk III to an Apple III+, be sure that pin 13 has been removed from the adapter. The pin can either be clipped off or pulled out. Later versions of the adapters may have this pin removed for you.
