    Compact Mac Server

    Two users so far - woohoo! I accidentally found out that my MacBook Pro running OS X 10.12.6 can transfer files to and from the server - the server just showed up in Finder one day and I clicked "Connect". I assumed that modern Macs wouldn't be able to connect to older versions of Netatalk. This is another nice way to get files from my modern Mac to my old Macs (ftp is what I was using before this).

    .img files with old Macs

    I have not. What format would one convert it to?

    .img files with old Macs

    So I found this great library of old compact Mac software on archive.org here: https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_mac The problem is that most of their hard drive images are in .img format and I can't get any of my old Macs (SE/30 & QuickSilver) to read them. I've tried Disk Copy, ImageMaster, MountImage, and ShrinkWrap without any luck. I've tried downloading directly to my Mac QuickSilver running OS9 from archive.org and that doesn't work either. My modern MacBook can mount the images but you cannot simply copy the files over directly, as they all appear as documents on the old Mac. Has anyone gotten these .img files to mount on your old Macs?

    Netatalk SD Card Image?

    If anyone is interested in signing on to my Pi server with your old Mac, log on to my BBS for instructions (click on link in my signature). I've only got B&W Mac games up on there now but will be adding much more in the near future...

    Netatalk SD Card Image?

    I was able to get A2Server up and running! My issue was trying to get it working via wifi - ethernet works perfectly.

    Netatalk SD Card Image?

    Thanks for the info. I've got a RPi running TCP'ser to emulate a Hayes modem for my BBS, and I figured that it could also be used as a backup server for my old Macs, and possibly link to it for the Mac download section of the BBS in the future. The applefool site looks quite daunting - that's why I was hoping somebody had a prebuilt image... I've tried to get A2Server up and running but get the "Apple II clients cannot connect because Appletalk networking is unavailable..." message. I'm using Raspbian and it's supposed to automatically install Appletalk for you, but this does not appear to be the case. I already have an account on VTools, but I was looking to set up something more local.

    .img files with old Macs

    I tried the Disk Copy 6.5 beta without any luck. I'm assuming these images were created with OS X Disk Utility as you said and meant for use with old Mac emulators.

    .img files with old Macs

    As a workaround, I was able to download the .img files to my old white MacBook running OS X 10.4.11, mount the images, then copy the individual files / folders via AppleShare to my Mac SE/30 (with ethernet card). Good thing I've got so many old Macs laying around here! That's pretty sweet that OS X 10.4 can file share with the old Macs...

    SE/30 with Vertical Pinstripes

    Did some further testing tonight - got good continuity from the pad of pin 2 of UE8 (vid0) to UC7 but not from the pin itself. Ran a wire from pin 2 of UE8 to pin 2 of UC7 and all is good now! I suspect a leaking cap adjacent to UE8 was the cause...

    SE/30 with Vertical Pinstripes

    Hey guys, I recently recapped a SE/30 board for sound issues and in the process got the dreaded vertical pinstripes (aka gangster pinstripes). I've got good continuity chip to chip with vid (0) - vid (7), so I'm thinking that UE8 may be bad. Is there a way to confirm that this chip is bad? And is there anyone that could replace this chip for me? Thanks in advance, Todd

    SE/30 with Vertical Pinstripes

    Thanks for the help! I've got good continuity between pins 14 of UA8-AD8 to pin 13 of UE6.

    SE/30 with Vertical Pinstripes

    Just to be clear - these are the vertical single pixel lines that occur every 8 pixels (see attached picture). The issue comes and goes. Everything else is working fine, even the sound now!

    Problem with DaynaPORT E/si30 network card

    If anyone is interested, using an AUI transceiver did fix my issue - the SE/30 is now on the Net! I got a CentreCom Cisco 210TS AUI transceiver off of eBay and all is good now.

    Problem with DaynaPORT E/si30 network card

    Sorry to revive a dead thread, but I'm having the same issue with my DynaPort E/Si30 card and an Airport Express. There's an AUI port on the network card - would using an AUI transceiver fix this issue? Thanks in advance!

    LCIII with no sound

    Hey guys, Here's a weird issue - my LCIII speaker was making some static noises for a few days and now there is no sound at all while in Mac mode, but when I launch my IIe card the sound works fine. The volume is cranked all the way up on the Mac end. I've read that bad caps can cause sound issues, but why would it work in IIe mode then? Any idea what's wrong? Thanks in advance!

    LCIII with no sound

    Thanks for the detailed suggestions and schematics. Continuity is good between all of those points. Looking more like the sound chip? I should note that there's no sound coming through the headphones jack as well.

    LCIII with no sound

    So about a month later and after much begging, I got my board back recapped. Unfortunately I still have no sound. Is there a way to test the sound chip (344S033-B) to see if it's the culprit? Thanks!

    LCIII with no sound

    I had already sent my board out so no worries. I had no idea that there were issues with maccaps.com - I sent a Mac Classic board to him a few years ago and had no problems...

    LCIII with no sound

    Thanks for the info - I ended up sending the board off to mac-caps.com. Not a fan of surface mount soldering...

    LCIII with no sound

    Good to know - thanks. I'll start by replacing the caps. Does anyone have a good source for the caps?
  21. Hey guys, Has anyone gotten the Apple IIe card to work with the Quadra 630 using OS 7.5.5? I can't get the Memory control panel to display the option to select 24-bit memory addressing. I've read elsewhere that you can't have more than 8 megs of RAM or the Memory control panel won't give you the option, but even when I remove my 32 meg RAM chip I can't get that option to show. Anyone else had any luck? Thanks in advance!

    Quadra 630 and Apple IIe Card

    Rats... The manual for the Quadra 630 confirms it: "The Macintosh LC 630 and Macintosh Quadra 630 computers operate only in 32-bit addressing mode, so they do not support the Apple IIe card for the Macintosh LC." Looks like the IIe card is going back in my LC III...
