I have a ProFILE 5 MB and a ProFILE 10 MB. Both work.
I have found that I get I/O errors when trying to use Copy II+ (or
other disk utility software) to access or format a ProFILE when the
cable is loose. Check the connection and make sure that the cable you
are using to connect the ProFILE to the interface card is solidly
connected. It is usually wise to screw the cable in all the way so
that it doesn't come loose.
Take a look at both ends of the cable that you are using and make sure
that there is no Pin #7. If there is a Pin #7 then it either won't
fit on the connector to the interface card or, even if you cram it on
there, it will be too loose to function properly.
If your cable has a Pin #7, you can extract Pin #7 with a pair of
needle-nose pliars. That's what I do when one of my ProFILE cables go
bad--just take any standard DB-25 cable and remove Pin #7.
Also, check to make sure that the card is a 10 MB ProFILE card rather
than a 5 MB ProFILE card. I believe that the cards were the same,
save for a single ROM that is different on the 10 MB card than on the
5 MB card.
Those drives are a lot of fun once you get them working. Just have to
make sure that the connections are all good. (And if all else fails,
try re-seating the card!)
All tried my card is right, it's the one for the 10 MB version
