    Macintosh SE with Lapis Displayserver card

    Thanks for taking the time to help. Unfortunately the Mobius driver doesn’t work. The monitors I connect don’t even show the sign of any signal. Either I really need the Lapis driver or maybe the card is dead somehow. Anyway, here some more photos.

    Portable and floppy emu

    I have removed the original Portable SCSI harddisk. The goo issue killed it. I love the total silent portable. The floppy emu works  great on the external floppy port. But it does not work on the internal floppy connectors. Am I missing something?
