    Third generation (3G) iPod and Mac OS 9

    Just bumping this to see if anyone else has tried this. Thanks!

    Newton / Kodak picture card adapter ?

    The Newton natively only support Linear Flash, which is not what a compact flash card is. However! You can download ATA Support here: https://www.kallisys.com/ and you can use a compact flash card in a PCMCIA adapter. You won't be able to transfer files by putting them on the card, the Newton's storage of 'soups' aren't exactly files, but you can expand your Newton's storage this way.

    I believe I have a stock 2400 CPU. Let me check and get back to you.

    Newbie Newton questions...

    For the 2000/2100 you would need a AA battery 'cage', in my experience the rechargeable packs are more common with those. Any 100 series just takes AA's as is, and modern rechargeable AA's last a good while. Newtontalk is the best resource for Newton info, if you're not used to a mailing list you can search the archives at the site.

    Third generation (3G) iPod and Mac OS 9

    I recently picked up a working 3rd gen iPod (dock connector, 4 buttons across the top only charges via firewire), and I'm trying to see if I can get it to show up in iTunes 2 in Mac OS 9. I'm connected to a G4 cube via firewire, I know OS 9 never did anything w/ USB syncing and ipods. I found a couple old posts out there (https://forums.ilounge.com/threads/3g-ipod-and-os9.5724/) and it seems like it should be possible, but I'm not sure. I even tried Audion but that just freezes when the iPod is attached. The iPod does show up in the Finder as a Firewire disk and behaves normally there. Nothing ever shows up in iTunes. Has any one ever tried this?

    A mild update to my earlier query about the Studio Display at resolutions other than 640x480 or 1280x1024. Installing several different ATI drivers made no difference... but installing 9.2.2 did. 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, and native all work normally and look good now.

    Also, I'm noticing some weird splotches in the black plastic on the image. Not sure what that is, it's not there in real life.

    I recently got a gen-u-wine Macintosh TV front plate for my 575 with a Macintosh TV board. One black piece at a time, I guess...the two tone look is a little funny but it works. But i realized the TV uses a caddy CD-ROM, so my current tray loader is blocked.

    Great find on that TAM, what a lot of goodies inside. Are you going to clean up and keep the TAM itself? I'm curious how had the speaker grills are to clean.

    I have not tried in OS X (this only has OS 9 installed right now.) Thank you for that link, that is a TON of info. I've tried to wade through and try a couple different drivers but so far no change. Gotta keep working.

    It does say 'Apple Studio Display' in the title bar, so it knows that much. I'm just using ADC direct from the video card, I think it's a rage 128. No brightness slider, though...so you're right, maybe its not being detected right. No way to adjust refresh rate.

    Recently picked up G4 Cube from another member on here...what a machine! My 17" ADC Studio display that has been sitting around now has a purpose. Only thing that is odd is it works great in 1280x1024 and 640x480, but anything inbetween I get a screen like this: Now, my memory may be fuzzy, but everymac backs me up, I thought this screen supported 800x600 and 1024x768. Anyone else know?

    One of my old computer collection rules for myself is that everything has to have a purpose or a job...which is really so that I don't just buy All The Old Macs. I have found since my 6500 jukebox my nearby Color Classic isn't doing much. I'm trying to think of a way to use it as a part of my daily routine in my office but I'm at a bit of a loss for it. It can't do anything (visualizer/MP3s) that the 6500 can (it is a Mystic with an Apple IIe card). It needs a job. (i mean, other than looking charming)

    I really like SoundJam. It has Shuffle By Album, even so long ago, it still baffles me why Apple never had built in on iOS.

    Well the World's Most Overcomplicated Jukebox is fully functional: I've got 40 GB of MP3's that play great through SoundJam MP. iTunes 2 is really unstable with a library of that size in Mac OS 9. (SoundJam is...relatively stable). Spotify plays via sound-in on the iPad mini. WhiteCap works as a visualizer as a plugin in SoundJam and a standalone program for the Spotify tunes. The whole thing works pretty well, and I'm able to mute sound via the 6500's remote at my desk. I still haven't figured out track skipping via the remote and I don't know that it's even possible.
