  1. Are SCSI to IDE adapters a thing that work for Macs ?
  2. Can this be accomplished on a Mac? I guess a PPC bistro would be good enough ?

    Bad caps leading to slow performance ?

    I learned something today: performa 475 is not an LC III! Makes sense why the game is so slow. Everything else is fine on it, the word processing, after dark screensavers etc. Its the raw lack of speed. I did not know you could put System 6 on the Performa 400. I was under the impression that the Performa shipped after introduction of Mac OS 7 (although it should be identical to the LC which can boot system 6). I will have to try to boot off a system 6 floppy (6.0.8? right?) later tonight.

    Performa 400 - AKA LC II - It cant even play simcity 2000 without stuttering. LC 475 (AKA LC III has no issues) maybe I should swap the HD's and see if there is any difference
  5. Its an old quantum drive that I had but forgot the password. I guess I can format it but I would like the old software on it.
  6. I know all of them need to be replaced but is slow performance a sign of failing caps? I see visible damage on the board.
  7. trying to get this old external working

    I know this thread is old, but does anyone know if he's ok? There have not been any uploads or updates in years. Hope he is doing fine.
  9. It’s on 7.5 right now but I want it on 7.1. Anyone have any experiences with both ?

    More than ten years later - these machines do have some worth even though being slow.
