  1. Today
  2. This is an old thread but I've got some results, when I open SCSI2SD monitor and it said SCSI Test: OK and SD Test: FAIL, I got these results by connecting SCSI2SD to the Mac Color Classic with SCSI Cable and Molex power connector, and I also connected it to my MacBook via USB.

    DeeNams collection and finds

    To be honest, I have multiple rooms for my collection. It's always in progress.
  4. +1. With some modification to the color palette, the flight scene could be the sequel to Another World, after the ending scene, perhaps? Rewriting the horrible Heart of the Alien, that fortunately never made it to the Mac.

    50 pin -> 80 pin SCSI?

    Using Modern Hard Drives on Old Macs?

    Fabulous collection and even better Mac Man Cave! Is that one side of the display room or did you set your stuff up in a borrowed board room for the photo session?

    Bad caps often look normal. I would start by recapping the logicboard to try and solve this.

    50 pin -> 80 pin SCSI?

    There was a brief discussion on another thread recently:

    Mac lc 475 no sound

    Yes it is odd. I am suspecting something interrupting the output to the internal speaker. Alternatively, something could be shorting the external port, which makes the machine “think” there is something plugged in there all the time, cutting off the internal speaker. No matter how good caps look, they always need to be changed at this age if they are surface mount electrolytics.

    Mac lc 475 no sound

    No, never recapped, psu never recapped, caps are all good lookin'. I don't know if there's corrosion under the chips but they all look very good, the only lookin bad is J22 in the photo. where's the sound chip on the lc 475? and why the output jack is still workin? it sounds strange to me...

    50 pin -> 80 pin SCSI?

    Yes, has been a long time, but yes it worked for me.

    I do have a real soft spot for the eMate. Mine has just got a new actual use, I'm going to use it as the out-of-band management terminal for my network kit

  16. Has anyone had success using a 50 -> 80 pin SCSI adapter in a Mac so that the more common 80 pin SCSI drives can be used?
  17. Oh what an honor to me Well, I also wanted to use your NeoWidEx but I have to change ROMs first due I still have 3A/88 My Prommer and some ROMs are ready to have ome fun today I will report back, if NeoWidEx will finally see my Widget(s). Another Error I get using BLU and trying to LLF is Error-Code 75... I will write a Blog-Entry on my Homepage soon (http://www.marnoweb.de/de/Bastelecke.html) including a whole set of more detailed photos, even the manually adjustment of the positions of some parts and brake etc. :D
  18. I am pretty sure it's correct, but thought it worth checking with someone more knowledgeable than I... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4MB-30-Pin-Simm-Fpm-Parity-9-Chip-RAM-Memory-4Mx9-5V-70ns-Samsung-KMM594000B-7/274302508296
  19. Totally. That's why I said opt for one of the really cheap SSDs as they will still saturate the PCI bus with ease. The video memory looks good to me.

    Got a Power Macintosh G3 Desktop, what is it???

    Thanks, that's interesting information! Will an SATA SSD be bottlenecked by the PCI bus? For video memory, does this look like it would work? https://www.ebay.com/itm/143566116522

    Revitalization of a PCMCIA Rev. B card cage

    I got both modules very cheap with a 520c and a 540c. The owners didn't really know what they were selling.

    Revitalization of a PCMCIA Rev. B card cage

    I'll try the Rev. B booting again, later. I'm refurbishing my three 540c before. They are really good machines.
  23. Any cheap SATA SSD probably is the most economical way, seeing that you already have two SATA cards at hand right there. I think that's a leftover from the intention to build a CHRP compliant system with clones already in mind. The board also has a Jumper to switch between support for a Mac or standard ATX power supply. Not sure if that ever was a thing. The G3 and G4 ZIF modules have their own fast cache. Video memory. It takes standard SGRAM SO-DIMMs I think.
  24. Unfortunately I know very little about these models, so I'm not going to be any of help in terms of your questions but I just wanted to post to say, a little historical tidbit on this model, this is a cool Mac to own because I believe this is the first Power Macintosh model launched under Steve Jobs / Jon Rubenstein's helm - (I can't remember where the G3 AIO falls in the timeline but I am pretty sure that was being worked on before Jobs/Rubenstein were in control of product development...) the desktop G3 was a really successful model as far as I know and Apple desperately needed it after being crushed by the more competitively priced clones at the time. I'm not sure how many they sold exactly, they seem hard to come by now, there's a couple on eBay but priced a little high. With this model Apple also returned to better packaging again, I think these came in a white box with a color photo of the desktop G3 on the front, and a blue accessories box inside. Good luck with your upgrades :)
  25. I recently got a PM G3 desktop and I was wondering about upgrades for it and also how to get an OS installed on it most effectively. It currently has a 1GB HDD, but it doesn't boot and according to everymac it isn't the original, so I'm wanting to replace it, but what is the best replacement for it? There's SCSI, onboard IDE, IDE on a PCI card, or maybe SATA in a PCI card, if thats not a waste of resources... Here's what I'm working with. 1) Whats the fastest hard drive/SSD option I can get for it? 2) Why is there a spot on the motherboard with 34 pins marked "floppy"? 3) Is there a version of the motherboard that can use the "Cache" slot thats blank on this board? 4) What is that little SODIMM looking port by the video circuitry? 5) Does anyone here have a couple 128MB low profile RAM modules I can use? I only have high-profile ones. 6) Whats going on with the personality card and why does it have so many open ports? Can I upgrade it? Here's the PCI cards I have to work with, I don't know if any are useful for this Mac or not: There's a Promise Ultra100, a Promise SATA150, and a Silicon Image SataLink sil3112.
  26. Thanks! Which directory did you upload them to? I can't seem to find the file(s).
