    RaSCSI and Maintosh Plus

    Has anyone other gotten their Plus to boot from a RaSCSI? I've created and formatted multiple disks and installed System 6.0.8, I can see it if I boot from another disk but cannot boot form the RaSCSI alone. Have tried formatting/new drivers with Special HD SC Setup 7.3.5, PLI, Blue Disc...

    Arduino SCSI device - Work in Progress

    Lost in the June crash of 2021 were several posts regarding construction of "Poor man's" blueSCSI. Though it does work, by the time you get all of the materials, board, SD holder, you might as well have just ordered the kit. Its a good project though. Multiple trouble shooting posts, wiring...

    Soldering success

    Not apple but Atari related, but a conquest, at least for me. It may give additional motivation to attempt (again) a reconstruction of the LCD ribbon for a 180c. Anyway...aside from the center ground of the FPGA (which I couldn't see but assumed I melted with a heat gun), this was all...

    Color Classic speed

    Wow...its interesting, I even owned an LC way back when and I do not remember it being this slow, maybe just happy to have color at that point.....

    Color Classic speed

    I had increased the memory on my color classic today to 8 MB hoping for a speed bump. It's running System 7.1.1 and 32 bit addressing is on, on reading System 7.1.1 has 32 bit quickdraw built in. Abuse and Prince of Persia 2 are not playable secondary to the lag. I thought at least POP would...

    Basket Case PowerBook 180c

    Yeah! Great job and good eyes....So there is hope...I would try the same except for the part about "be careful plugging and unplugging the tab connector as they (the tab contacts) can  (eventually) displace"........its pretty cramped in there but looking at taking the header off of the inverter...

    Basket Case PowerBook 180c

    Nice...be careful plugging and unplugging the tab connector as they can  (eventually) displace especially after you solder to it. I tried some of this but not as clean as you are to this point, it semi worked but it was so tedious I haven't gotten back to it. Still kicking myself for not being...

    G4 MDD PSU

    Thanks for the link it was very helpful, sorry to repeat  up information that is already out there. ....I have the same video card that you have and it inspired me to reassess and I found that I can shut the case with the 500 watt power supply mounted in that area. So the power supply swap...
