    Newton / Kodak picture card adapter ?

    Greetings all, Very kindly a friend of mine has dug a working Newton out of his attic and is going to hand it over this weekend (what an awesome dude!). In preparation of this momentous event I've been powering up my old hardware so that I can 'sync' with the Newton, and therefore install new software etc. I installed the connection kit for classic OS onto a G3 iMac I have in the workshop. I don't (yet) have a physical cable but maybe one will be included in the bag of goodies (fingers crossed) so I was pottering around and dug out a box of random PCMCIA cards I've collected over the years, several of which are Kodak branded Compact Flash to PCMCIA adapters. Does anyone know if these will work as a storage medium on the Newton? There are two 10mb CF 'Kodak Picture Card' modules and one 1gb lexar module which is probably not supported from what I read online... Many thanks for thoughts on this! p.s there's no Newton smiley and there should be... Mods! Mods!!

    Does anyone have a Supermac Superview SCSI?

    Yes, I did find a copy of the driver, do you need it? I searched for hours could not find it anywhere on the web, I only found it by running unerase on my scsi2sd.

    Apple IIGS Repair Help

    Ah yeah you know what, I did come across one article referencing ram codes and a 1 amongst 0s reflecting the position of the ram issue. So position "2" ram, per the 1 in the code in the pics above, would be where exactly? Sorry, I'm a total newb when it comes to this stuff.

    Apple IIGS Repair Help

    Looks like a ram issue to me. Probably not related to the battery problem
  7. I just recently obtained my first Apple II, an Apple IIGS, as it was too good of a price to pass up. Previously, I had only dipped into vintage compact Mac land, with an SE/30, Classic, Classic II and Color Classic. I popped open the case upon unboxing it (awful pack job, btw, but it somehow made the journey safely without any visible damage), which revealed a pretty significant battery explosion - the battery and top part of the battery enclosure were nowhere to be found - perhaps removed by a previous owner, who knows...In any event, I cleaned the motherboard with a qtip and isopropyl alcohol to remove most of the battery gunk. "After" pictures attached below. I do intend to try to clean it off further with a toothbrush and alcohol, as someone suggested on an Apple II Facebook group. I was able to get the system to boot as it should the first time I fired her up (blue screen with Apple IIGS, ROM03), but only for a few seconds, and since then, it has been in a perpetual self-test loop upon firing up. Pics below. Any advice as to what to do next, besides, trying a toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol, with particular attention payed to Slot 1 and the IWM chip? I thought a recap could be in the cards, but I've been informed that caps on Apple IIs don't need to be replaced like on 68k macs. Any truth to that? Any help you're able to offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  8. 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.

    To be honest, I have multiple rooms for my collection. It's always in progress.
  10. +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:
  15. LaPorta

    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.

  22. 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?
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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.
