    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    Hmm, I only got a 20MB-ish HD with the above parameters. Also, it felt kind of slow (took like half an hour to initialize), anyone see any that should be changed in the above?

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    I'm actually accessing the SCSI2SD right now with the Apple HD SC Setup v7. 3.5 (initializing right now), so happy days, real progress being made here now! I wonder if it was the space in the version number or something? Thanks for the help, guys!

    This is the settings I'm having now (should I alter anything?):

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    SCSI Probe (thanks a lot LaPorta!) found the card which I presume is good news! I will double-check the settings once again. There are plenty of other options that might or might not be checked/enabled as well.

    Yes, I normally have a SCSI drive attached (at this moment a Quantum 500MB) and that works so at least the internal bus is fine (haven't tried the external port as I don't have any external SCSI device).

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    Yes, I think I have the correct settings (tried a couple of different ones as well). I'll see if I can get Lido onto a diskette and try that.

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    I used the utility for Windows to access the card via the Micro USB interface on the card. I've done the settings and saved them to the card so that works (if I read them I get the same back). The HD setup doesn't see a SCSI device at all, is that normal? I'm thinking that if it was a size issue it would still pop up on the SCSI device list but maybe not usable, or? Also, the red LED starts flashing basically immediately upon powering on the SE/30.

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    I have a SCSI2SD v5.1 card that I recently bought, I've flashed it with the latest firmware available and I'm able to set configuration but when I hook it up to my SE/30 (with working SCSI bus) it's just flash the red LED every 5-10 seconds or so and I can't see the device from the OS HD setup. I'm using a SANDISK MicroSD card (16GB and Class 10 I think). Any ideas?

    ASANTE MacCon+ TK/TP problem

    If you have a working copy of the 5.6.1 drivers I'm very interested. I've managed to test the 5.2.9 drivers and the installer says that it cannot find the card. I have 6.0.8 OS installed right now. I haven't been able to run any other tool(s) which can scan the bus for the card. The Mac Con for IISi SE30 card (the 1st card), if that is installed (only) would the Asanté installer see that as the "card" or does the installer only detect if the 2nd card is attached via the ribbon cable? Since this machine was owned by someone who shouldn't have tried to repair it I'm a bit unsure if it is working properly even though the network activity light blinks on the 2nd card. I'm also thinking that it could be a PSU issue (haven't measued the +5V yet though), maybe if I take out a few RAM modules and switch from a harddisk to a SCSI2SD card I might get some extra amperage. But, a known good 5.6.1 drivers diskette would be a good step forward.

    SE/30 with graphics issue

    I don't know if I wrote that but essentially what I meant was that even though I removed the RAM modules the screen was the same upon startup (i.e not a RAM issue but something else on the mainboard (turned out to be missing signals from the UE8 chip due to capacitor leakage).
  11. Right now I think I have 6.0.8 installed (but I aim higher when I've got a library of software available and TCP/IP running (can't get my Asanté MacCon+ TK/TP going)).
  12. I'm struggling with getting software on my SE/30. I've installed StuffIt!, WinImage and MacDrive on my PC. I have no problems writing a .image file with WinImage and installing from that (OS diskettes for example) but extracting .hqx, .sea, .bin etc. is not working and I can't copy them in such a way that when I insert the diskette into the Macintosh they are executable files. Any ideas? Any good and thorough tutorial out there that I've missed? TIA!
  13. As I've repaired the SE/30 I've started looking at my ASANTE MacCon+ TK/TP (Rev B) card. I can't get this going. As I'm no expert on MacOS etc. I'm struggling both with get the drivers on a diskette but also installing. I found an diskette image (High Density) which is version 5.1.2 but it doesn't matter how I install it, I can't get card running (I see different evidence of drivers/applications being installed). The latest diskette with drivers I've found is version 5.6.1 but these images are in ".hqx" format and I've yet to find a method to extract them and create a diskette under Windows. Of course, I don't know if the board is faulty or the card that is connected to the mainboard but at least there is activity when I connect it to a switch (green LED blinks). I've tried several OSes so that isn't the problem at least. So, any advice on how to expand and write .hqx images in Windows onto a HD diskette? If so, where do I download the correct software? I've attached a picture of the MacCon+ TK/TP card connected to my switch. TIA!

    SE/30 with graphics issue

    LOL! Picture has been to large all the time but the error message hasn't been very helpful. Anyhow, here is the intitial screen. Like I've mentioned before it doesn't matter if the RAM and the ROMs are in, the stripes was there all the time until the problem was fixed/repaired (2nd picture). Happy days!
