    IIsi System installing woes.

    I've exhausted all my solutions in trying to replace the SCSI HD in my IIsi with a larger one, but hopefully someone can tell me a possibly stupidly obvious thing I may have missed or am doing wrong. My IIsi HD has it's original 80MB Quantum HD installed, but since I had a spare Apple branded...

    PowerBook 190 not powering on after reassembly.

    My word, old laptops can be an absolute pain in the ass. I fired up the lowly 190 today (yes the one everyone seems to hate) only to find the trackpad stopped working (buttons were fine). Figured I'd check the connections, clean them and reseat them, then hope and pray the thing would work...

    PowerBook external SCSI CD not working.

    So I've been working on my PowerBook 500's and my 180c, managed to get them in a nice running condition. Data transfering on these machines is nothing short of a bit of a pain but I should have the tools to do it.nor so I thought. I have one of these "Media Vision" HDI to 25-pin SCSI adapters...

    Renaming the "Trash" (pre OSX).

    I've managed to find plenty of stuff on the net about doing this in OSX, but absolutely nothing on if it's also possible to rename it in a OS9 and before environment. Does anyone know of it's possible? Maybe I'm just being thick!

    6100 Sonnet sticker location.

    I'm undecided where to place the newly arrived case sticker to reflect the G3 card that's installed! What do you guys think? 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6:

    PM 7600/132 HD issues.

    So I've gotten all my old Mac's to a point where I'm happy (at least the ones that are working). All but one machine remains, my 7600. This one is (or was) a bit of a beast. Loaded with a Crescendo G4 450/1M and half a GB of RAM, this thing used to fly. Or so I remember. I'm pretty sure this...

    IIcx with a nice surprise inside.

    So I found a IIcx for sale on the 'Bay and it was recently listed. At first I thought it looked pretty junk, and since I had a IIci, I wasn't that interested. However, as I looked through the photos I could see potential. So the only bad parts are it had no HD and it was listed as "faulty" but...

    PB190, is it the worst? (Probably).

    Just finally received a PowerBook 190 I won some time ago on eBay. Widely regarded as (one of) the WORST PowerBook's designed and made. I can kinda see why people have that opinion or it. Plastics are poor, can't use an external display (at least on mine), no mic input and because it's not the...

    Help identifying NuBus RAM card. (RAM Disk?)

    Hi again. Another bit of hardware I'm struggling to find any info on, let alone software. I got this NuBus RAM Disk Card (I think?). There's no markings or make of any kind on the card itself. Just lots of off-the-shelf looking IC's and some stickers with manufacturing numbers on them. It...

    HDI-20 disassembly help.

    I got two of these HDI-20 disk drives and both have issues (one doesn't let disks in and the other seems bereft of life). There's no screws anywhere on these so how the hell do you open one up? I assume you have to pry it open but I fear I may break some clips if I do some guess work! Anyone...

    Performa 630 DOS issues.

    Hi again chaps. I've drawn a blank on this one so I figured you guys are the best people to turn to. So I have a couple of issues with my 630 that have cropped up since I've upgraded the HD to an 8GB one (2x 4GB partitions). First one is that it crashes a few seconds after selecting "Shut...

    Help identifying Lapis PDS card.

    As per title, does anyone have any information on this card? I was going to list it up for sale but I got no idea what it is exactly! I assume some kind of mono video card (duel or full page display?). Does anyone have info on this? Better yet are the drivers still available? Regardless, I'm...

    IIvx not powering on.

    Hi guys, been a while. In my absence, I've actually been quite busy. I've been sorting out alot of my old Mac 68K (and a few PPC) machines and over the past few years, bringing them out of storage with mostly positive results. However this IIvx (I know, hardly one of the 'good' ones but I...

    OS 7.1 disk image with enabler for LC III

    Hi all long time no see. Had alot of "life" things going on so wasn't able to be so active and had such little time, apologies. Long story short I finally got round to sorting out some of my machines with the help of that awesome BigMessOfWires Mac Emu device I got a few days back. I'm trying to...

    ATi 9200LE in PowerMac 7600 (OS 9.2.2)

    I just received a "Mac Edition" Radeon 9200LE card and I was wanting to swap it out with the Rage card currently installed. I am fruitlessly looking for drivers for this card to work on OS 9.2.2. Does anyone here know where I can find them or if they have a CD they can upload as an .ISO or...

    Upgrading from G3 to G4 in my 7600/132.

    I need a hand as I had bought a 9600 tower from eBay and I havn't the space for it so I had given the basic tower away and kept some of the cards. One of which is a Sonnet Crescendo G4 450/1M which will fit my 7600 fine. However, it has a 400Mhz G3 card installed currently (XLR8) and swapping...

    Floppy drive wont stop ejecting.

    I have seemed to come accross this issue a few times in the past but never botherd to look much into it, that is until now. I am curious as to how I can fix this now as I have run out of spare floppy drives. Esentially, I had replaced the intermal 3.5" floppy drive in the Macintosh Plus with a...

    Drivers for Crescendo G3 NuBus & Asante Net. Card?

    I got a bit of a dilemma for old hardware drivers atm for a couple of machines. Il start with the Sonnet G3 upgrade. I currently have it installed in my 6100/66 PowerMac, although I can find the product on the website (only difference is mine has a black heatsink rather then a purple one) I...

    Unusual RAM issue with my IIsi.

    Hmm, well this is odd. I got some non-parity RAM for my Macintosh IIsi and it appears to still be complaining with the 'chimes of death'. I've tried different sticks, different capacities, even paraty RAM just to be sure and all the same result. It boots just fine with none installed (well it...
