    SE/30 networking almost working, help

    Up until recently Asante offered the old drivers and manuals for download. Seems to be gone. I think 5.6.1 is the latest version of Asante EtherTalk.

    SCSI2SD in HD20SC?

    I have no specific experience with this combination but I cannot see why this should not work. The HD20SC - without the HDD - is just a case with a power supply and an SCSI connection. Do not mix up the HD20 with the HD20SC. The former is a special kind of HDD with am Apple floppy connector. The HD20SC is normal SCSI HDD. The SE/30 can use all kinds of SCSI drives, e.g. also SCSI Zip drives. So: should work.

    SE/30: distorted picture

    I asked the seller: he did not change the caps on the analog board (but on the main board) and did not manipulate the crt magnets or yoke.

    SE/30: distorted picture

    Yes, he wrote that he could not regulate the height of the picture with the pot. That is one thing. I'm more worried about the uneven distortion. Maybe it is the deflector magnets? P.S. How did you find the ad?

    SE/30: distorted picture

    Hi, I purchased an SE/30 which runs fine but the monitor picture is vertically compressed (more on the left side, less on the right side). It stays the same even when the SE/30 warms up. Is this a problem on the analog board or at the monitor yoke? Any hints are much appreciated. Best, bobo68
  6. Yes, these are the chips plus the muxes UA8 - UD8. Numbering scheme is correct. You need to check all connections systematically. When I did it I built a little spreadsheet with the expected connections (chip & pin <-> chip & pin) and then checked all of them.

    SE/30 distorted or no sound

    I'd check all connections of the ASC based on SE/30 schematics. What kind of bomb / message do you get? I would assume that there is something wrong with the bus address lines incl. chips select etc. of the ASC. HTH, bobo68
  8. Nope, in this case the three mentioned jumpers disable: http://keycorner.org/pub/text/doc/dsas3xxx.pdf If it works I would not change anything.
  9. Is there a pcmcia card installed with the UPS program? Anyway, you should be able to circumvent the UPS package from starting by booting with extension off. See http://www.pda-soft.de/faq/frames_newton-faq-nos.html#IIIB2c Best, Boris
  10. You do not need one of the very rare SCSI-Ethernet adapters. There are PDS slot cards available like the Asante MacCon+ 30i.

    Installing Xlr8 450 MHz G3 ZIF

    Just search the interwebs. Don't know if this is the card you have: http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/OSX//G3CARDS/XLR8_MAChCarrier450/ The software to configure the card is described here, although it should boot into standard settings without software: http://lowendmac.com/misc/05/0606.html Best, bobo68

    Reading Floppy disk

    I'm not really sure what you want to achieve. But you probably need a bridge Mac that can transfer files between the 400k floppies of the Mac 512k and the "modern" world (1.44 floppy, network, zip drive, usb stick, ...). New external floppy drives cannot read the 400k/800k GCR floppy format of the classic Macs.

    New to Newton - Card Problems

    The getting started cards that came with the OMP were ROM cards: http://www.forcedperfect.net/gear/software/newtongettingstartedcard/ They have no battery.

    se/30 SCSI2SD

    SCSI2SD util says "SD Capacity (512-byte sectors): 0" when I have no SD in the slot. Otherwise it reports the size of the SD. The SCSI2SD monitor opens a little window with: SCSI2SD Device: Ready, 4.6 SD Test: OK SCSI Test: OK Have you tried different USB cables? Apart from that I'd say your SCSI2SD is broken but the USB HID Write Failure is strange. There is a short manual and a FAQ available.

    Macintosh Plus...should I buy?

    Mac Plus has no fan.
