    Power Macintosh G3 Minitower Upgrades

    Back again with good news. I returned today from vacation so i plugged again all the electronic devices (televisions, media players, computers). When i leave i always unplugged them all. Now the Power Macintosh G3 boots immediately! I do not have to wait for so long. I turned it off some times, i booted from 8.1, 9.1 greek and 9.2 and worked with all operation systems.

    Power Macintosh G3 Minitower Upgrades

    Back again after long time. I disabled the startup memory tests but no success. Yesterday i checked the time. It takes 1 minute for the screen to show up and and then about 1 minute and 20 seconds for mac os 9.1 to start. The same time with the memory tests on and off. I did the same with mac os 8.1 and again it takes 1 minute for the screen to show up and about 50 seconds for mac os 8.1 to start. Again with memory tests on or off the same time. I have a hard drive 120 gb with 3 partitions. One for Mac OS 8.1, one for Mac OS 9.1 Greek and Mac OS 10.2 and one for Mac OS 9.2. I remember some months before that i connected also one more dvd drive in order to have two of them installed on my power mac and when i booted the Macintosh, the screen showed up immediately. But i couldn't figure what was happening because it seemed that the computer was confused and couldn't arrange which drive to use and eject. So i kept only one dvd drive installed (a plextor one dvd writer).

    I bought two more 256mb ram sticks from OWC. My Power Macintosh G3 Minitower has 768mb full ram. I also replaced the apple 6x dvd drive with a 2004 plextor dvd writer and i wrote some games that i have downloaded from www.macintoshgarden.org via classilla with success. Specs below: Power Macintosh G3 Minitower 300mhz 768mb ram 120gb hard drive Floppy drive Plextor DVD writer drive Zip drive ATI Radeon 7000 Mac Edition 32mb ram Roland MT32 connected with Macman Midi Interface Usb firewire card Apple AV personality card

    Power Macintosh G3 Minitower Upgrades

    Today I replaced the apple 6x dvd drive with a plextor dvd writer 2004 model which I successfully burned a toast image. My computer is a power Macintosh g3 Minitower 300mhz with zip drive, 120 gb hard drive and ati Radeon 7000 mac edition 32mb vram. I wanted to have both dvd drives but all the ide cables seemed to be connected to the other devices. What can i do in order to be able to have both dvd drives and the zip drive connected? Where can I find a suitable cd bezel because the plextor hits the original bezel and cannot be come out? And finally can i burn bin/cue images in order to play games with the music directly from cd?

    Sonnet G4 Zif accelerator

    Thank you for your answers. They are very helpful.

    Sonnet G4 Zif accelerator

    Hello, i would like to ask what it needs for the Sonnet G4 accelerator for Power Macintosh G3 Minitower 300 mhz. I see some pictures on the internet and some of them show the card only and others show also the fans. Is all the package necessary for the installation? The minimum OS that supports is 9.2? Is there a big difference at speed ? Does it need drivers? Can you turn off the sonnet drivers in order to run the power mac again with the native speed? I have the Sonnet G3 nubus at 500 mhz installed in my Macintosh Performa 6116 and the the computer is a lot faster and more responsive, the best buy i have ever done for my Macs. Regards Dimitris

    Power Macintosh G3 Minitower

    The last Macintosh that I have found is a Power Macintosh G3 Minitower. I went to the seller's home but he didn't know if it was working because he didn't have an adapter to connect it with the vga monitor. I went there with an adapter and the Powermac didn't start. It's appearance was so great, all the internal and external parts were in great condition so I told him that I will take the risk to buy it and I will try to find out what is happening. The same night I solved the problem. I took out all the memory sticks and I installed one new stick that I had bought 1 month before from OWC. The Powermac worked and it was the 300mhz with full 6mb video card, apple av personality card, DVD drive and usb firewire card. I connected 120gb hard drive and the Ati Radeon 7000 Mac Edition 32mb card. I use it every day, I have installed lots of games and programs and I have also connected the Roland MT32 sound device which works perfectly on Sierra on line games. It is really a great machine, runs great games from monkey island era to 3d games like quake 3 arena. In the future I would like to acquire a sonnet g4 accelerator and the Ati Radeon 9200 Mac Edition 128mb ram.

    I have a plextor dvd drive that reads and writes and i would like to connect it to my g3 in order to have two dvd drives. The one connected now only reads dvds and cds. Is there a technical info that i have to know? What is happening with the cable which is for the direct sound from the cd?
