    Performa 630 - RAM question

    The solder pad is for a ROM slot, not for a RAM slot.

    CUDA, EGRET, HC6805 Hacking

    I have found the information into the LPX-040 motherboard developer note : https://web.archive.org/web/20030410054223/http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/hardware/Developer_Notes/Macintosh_CPUs-PPC_Desktop/LPX-40_Dev_Note.pdf The Cudla Lite is on the clone logic board and on Power Mac 4400. It's like a CUDA classic chip with PS/2 support. On the clone from Motorola, there is PS/2 port, on the Power Mac 4400, there is trace on the logic board only.

    CUDA, EGRET, HC6805 Hacking

    Is this possible tu dump and recreate a CUDA Lite chip ? It would be fun to add PS/2 Mouse and Keyboard on a Mac. I thunk it's the same chip, but with more memory and code inside the firmware to handle PS/2 peripherals. On the Mac side, the Power Mac 4400 use this chip, but without the component to use PS/2 (the trace are on the motherboard)

    ADB Optical mouse by Kensington

    I have one like that, but my model is an USB mouse, with an ADB adapter : https://www.journaldulapin.com/2017/04/12/optical-usb-adb/
  7. Mac OS X is not writing to HFS since many years. Actually, there is no reliable solution. At home, i use a Raspberry Pi with A2server as a "proxy" : old Mac and modern Mac can write and read on it.

    Apple IIe card

    It works with Floppy Emu : https://www.journaldulapin.com/2018/02/24/apple-iie-card/ Actually, it works too with the internal floppy disk, without problems. The size of the disk image is a little problem : if the disk image is not the exact size (800 KB or 140 KB), the Floppy Emu will not see it. If you connect the Floppy Emu to the Mac internal or external floppy connector, you must use 800 KB disk image and the Mac firmware. And if you try the Floppy Emu with the external cable on the Apple II card, it's important to use the right firmware. You must connect the card with the Mac firmware on the card and change the firmware to the Apple II firmware after that. And if you want to connect the Floppy Emu to the Mac after that, you must change before. The documentation say that you cannot try to connect the Floppy Emu to a Mac with an Apple II firmware, it's dangerous for the hardware.
  9. It's very complicated to find a LCD (or even a CRT) who accept Sync On Green. A home, i have many display, and the only way to have an image is my acquisition card.

    iMac G3 (Rev A -> C) G4 CPU Upgrade

    I have tried a PowerPC 604 from an IBM machine on my G3 BW : it will not boot, with a long beep.

    Are these rare?

    Actually, the Mac PB is an LocalTalk to EtherTalk adapter, but he can draw power from ADB (or external adapter). Many Farallon adapter are faster than "normal" adapter : with an external quartz, it's possible to speed up the connexion to ~1 Mb/s (only ~230 kb/s with Localtalk). But only with driver and Farallon adapter.

    Aeroflex SCSI to USB adaptor?

    I'm not sure with this specific adapter, but i have a Microtech XpressSCSI USB to SCSI adapter and it works without driver or with driver. Without driver, i can connect one SCSI storage peripheral (just use ID0) and it works as a USB Mass Storage driver. With driver (for old OS like Mac OS 9 or Windows 98), it works with a chain and peripheral like scanner and co.
  14. You can use a Jamport : it's a peripheral like the Stealth Port. http://alexhixon.com/projects/jamport/ The adapter replace the modem to add one serial port. It works with MIDI.

    another guess what is my new toy

    I will try that. I have one, but not the power supply, but with the information, i suppose i can adapt one.
