    Software for iigs

    Hey guys, i decided to move away from vintage Macs for a bit and try my hand at an Apple iigs. I saw that there are quite a few places online that advertise software downloads for iigs. I am wondering which of these sites the experts would recommend? Again, I am a neophyte here. Thank you...

    Mac Plus/Rominator/MacPaint 1.3 issue

    Yes that’s what I suspected but since I’m a noob I wanted someone more knowledgeable to confirm. Thank you!

    Mac Plus/Rominator/MacPaint 1.3 issue

    Yes, I got it to work with my BlueSCSI. I was trying to think of apps to put in the ROM disk and that seemed like a good one. I just thought it would be cool to be able to run on startup. But alas, I guess not. MacWrite works no problem. I haven't had a lot of success with games as the ROM...

    Mac Plus/Rominator/MacPaint 1.3 issue

    Hey guys. I am trying to get Mac Paint to run off of the Rominator I I installed on my Mac Plus. 1.0 complained that it didn't have enough memory. I decided to try MacPaint 1.3. That seems to launch but I get the message "MacPaint can't ind work space on the deault drive". Not sure what...

    Bad Ticker

    Really? Because my other board doesn’t do it! If I had another Compact Mac I would try it on there.

    Bad Ticker

    Hey guys. I need help with an analog board I am trying to run on a Mac plus. It’d driving me bananas! It makes a ticking sound when the RAM test completes. The sound goes away IF i unplug the ribbon cable from the floppy drive to the logic board OR if I put a disk in the floppy drive...

    testing Dyna Comp PSU 614-0028

    Hey guys. I just recapped a dyna comp PSU. I tried to test it on my LCII and it didnt do anything. No power to computer. I assume that this thing is compatible with my LC. Previously I had recapped a TDK and this one didn't give me any trouble. Anyone ever work on the Dyna Comp model and...

    800k floppy drive FROM HELL!

    No matter what I do it tells me the disk is unreadable and do I want to initialize. I’m definitely only turning a hair. I wonder if I’m doing something wrong that has nothing to do with tuning the motor and that is causing the unreadable disk issue. I know it’s a good disk. I know that my...

    Another 800k drive...

    This one does nothing when I insert a disk. It will seat and eject but will not read or write. it doesn't spin or anything. If it wasn't for the eject motor, I would think it's not getting power. Is this a sign that it needs a recap?

    800k floppy drive FROM HELL!

    Thank you for the replay. I’ll give it another shot. How much should I be turning the thing?

    800k floppy drive FROM HELL!

    Hey guys. I have spent two days working with an 800k floppy drive and I can't seem to get it to behave properly. I won't bore you with a detailed play by play but I'll summarize what I have done: 1. Disassembled, cleaned (99 IPA) and relubed ejection mechanism 2. Cleaned heads with 99 IPA...

    Would you help me with the corrupted EEPROMS?

    Rom-inator issues

    Thank you for this explanation! I think I should have found a "practice" logic board to mess with when playing with ROMs and sockets. It seems pretty clear to me that I ruined the existing sockets by attempting to install the ROMinator and then "cleaning". They aren't making good contact...
