  1. Looking for images, copies, or the original 1 DVD set that came with certain dual and quad core PPC power macs. DVD 1 has a hardware test that's hard to find for this model. Please PM me.
  2. Anybody remember which C.Itoh printer uses this ribbon? looking for a link to some newly made ones. I found some new ribbons a while back, but now, all i find are N.O.S, and probably dried up, or the ink no longer has any lubricating qualities left in it.
  3. I cannot find the 2 extra files (that are hyperlinked at the end) that must have came (on a floppy?) with the Apple LQ service manual that contain the parts list and the take apart section, so, no parts or take apart procedure exists on the internet. I bought a new print head, same problem as before, most of the 24 pins/lines don't print at all. Unusable garbage. Mine does not make the very sharp noises that you hear on a video of a good LQ printing on this site here: https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/16998-imagewriter-lq/?hl=imagewriter Instead, mine sounds VERY anemic. I am guessing bad caps on the print head drive board. Is that part of the main board? Anybody ever done this? Photos? How to? Even a description of how to disassemble it from someone who used to do the rebuild kits for Apple would be greatly appreciated. If there are things that need to be addressed while I have it all apart, please post! I have read that this is the same printer as a C.Itoh 715A.

    Apple IIgs System 6.0.2

    Now, all we need are some WHITE 3.5" DS DD discs and some scans of the 6.01 disc labels. You can use Illustrator or some other program to clean up the scan and change the 6.01 to 6.02. We can then make our own REAL discs and labels that look like the originals! I am one of those weirdos who really like playing with 3.5" discs. All my synth's had them. Something to do with hands-on, typing and saving your own work on a tangible medium. Writers appreciate this, as well. Anybody else interested in this?
  5. Is there a program that will burn files to a SCSI CD recorder, which CD ROM drive should I buy, and how does one do this, if at all? I realize that there is a table of contents, finalize process, etc., but this should be, in theory, possible. The redbook CD-R data rate is 4.3218Mb/sec. Will the IIGs support this ? I have a TWGS card at 7mhz, and a CFFA card that will recognize CF cards up to 128GB, if formatted with HFS. I have an Apple CD150 external SCSI drive, which is supported on the GS, but I could remove that drive and try a CDROM recorder in it. My IIgs: ROM1, 8Mb Sirius card, Ramfast D SCSI card, TWGS card.

    IIgs CD burning?

    I just figured that since it can read at 1X, it can't be much harder to write a CD at 1X. Has anyone tried to copy a CD to an HFS-formatted drive large enough to hold it? (800MB or larger)? Could this image be mounted using Mount-It or some other program? Please explain this. Is there any Cd authoring software that will take a raw 44.1 Khz stereo PCM file, add the table of contents and the other stuff (subcode channels, etc.) and create an Apple IIgs readable .iso/.cdr file? If there are any open source code out there that could be assembled/compiled/linked for the IIgs? This should be fairly easy if the hardware could support it.
  7. I can't find an owner's manual anywhere using Ebay, Google, Bing, etc. Please suggest an alternate source for this item. Also need advice on SSD drive performance vs real HDD's, max throughput specs, vs price, and is it worth it? For use in classroom/teaching/demos
  8. Hi to you all! I have an A9M0106 800K floppy drive bought off ebay, worked twice, then quit. Broken tiny white plastic gear on stepper motor shaft, Sony stepper motor. Anybody got one? Paypal, Visa, or I'll send you a check. I've also got another one that won't read at all, just spins. Anybody still fix these? PM me if interested. Many Thanks!
