    Solutions for HDI45 to VGA or DB15?

    Awesome! Why o why doesn't Ebay show this when I search for it. I now have two computers that have this port. Thanks, this price is totally reasonable.

    Solutions for HDI45 to VGA or DB15?

    Sadly they're out of stock if you click "Add to Cart". I'm shocked no one else has made these.

    Solutions for HDI45 to VGA or DB15?

    I have a "Macintosh Performa 6115CD" and need to get a video cable for it that converts HDI45 to a VGA or DB15. But man the original ones are crazy spendy. I found this oddly on Walmart online store...

    Color Classic best way to transfer files over Ethernet?

    Ok interesting. I also wonder if a SheepShaver emulator couldn't be used to connect? Then it would be easy to transfer between Windows to the emulator, then to the Color Classic from OS9 or OS7.

    Color Classic best way to transfer files over Ethernet?

    Hey I just fixed a Color Classic. However like LC computers these don't have external floppy ports. Whats the best way to transfer files between modern macOS, Windows or Linux to a 68k mac over Ethernet? Is there any software that can simulate AppleTalk over ethernet on Win/Mac/Lin? Or any FTP...

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    Looking it up, the only thing LC III+ doesn't support is some L2 cache card maybe (that LC III does). And the mod effects this the same way. So unless you use that card doesn't sound like their is any issue. (I'm still considering if I want to do the mod or not)

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    But the LC 475 / Performa 475 don't have a integrated FPU right? (as you can't add one). Also why did Apple limit the clock to 25mhz when it ran fine at 33mhz? I'll have to consider if I want to do this or not. Looks like an easy change but sometimes I prefer devices more true to their original...

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    Its faster than I expected. Only ever used an LC & LC II in the past for these. Do you know if the FPU helps in games in general that use "floats"? Or does a game need to be compile specifically to use it? What game did you use that required it btw?

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    Well it turns out the HD was going bad and its head getting stuck. Trying to take it apart to adjust it, I bent a head (its toast). So put in a SCSI2SD and just put on OS 7.5.5 directly and everything works! * Computer re-capped * Added heatsinks on hot chips * Add FPU !! * SCSI2SD drive (still...

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    7.5.3 CD version could fit within a 35mb drive image FloppyEmu could emulate. Maybe if I just copy all the CD files to a drive image, I could install from that.

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    That requires a CD. LC III needs disks. I need an approach that doesn't require a working CD drive. For one there is no way to emulate a CD drive in the future if they went bad (or does someone make a ODE for Mac?).

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    I couldn't get 7.5 to install either (forgot to list that).

    LC III has errors installing 7.1 or 7.5.3

    I have an LC III that I cannot get to install a OS. Using a up to date FloppyEmu. Tried multiple copies of 7.1, 7.1.1, 7.1.2 & 7.5.3 (that were in .dsk or .img format). The installers just keep erroring out. Different versions will error out on different disks. Can someone share a working copy...

    Macintosh II floppy interface doesn't work (IC chip?)

    I have a Mac II that WAS fully working I had just cleaned and right before I put back on the lid I added a drive B cable to go out the back (for FloppyEmu). Banging my head on the wall but I shorted something while messing with the cable while power was on and now drive A or B will work. They...

    BYTEBOOSTERS Atari joystick converter for Apple II not working

    So I just got one of these: https://console5.com/store/byteboosters-sega-atari-snes-joystick-adapter-to-apple-ii-e-c-c-iigs.html I've tested with two different Atari Joysticks with Mario Bros on Apple II+ and the jump button is always pressed (DPad / Joystick works fine).
