    SE/30 FDD stopped working correctly

    Today I checked all lines that going to FDD connector on PCB. I used a scans of official Apple schematics. No one of the lines are damaged. I also removed a bourn filter from PCB. But still my SE/30 can't format 1.4 and 800k floppies...

    SE/30 FDD stopped working correctly

    So the only solution will be the motherboard replacement?
  6. Hi all. Recenlty my FDD stopped being able to format 1.4 floppies. But 800kb formatted perfectly. I tried to: replace FDD from my Classic II replace FDD cable clear small puddles of electrolyte around capacitors on motherboard Computer correctly determines the type of diskette, so sensor working correctly. After formatting of 1.4 diskettes Mac OS show message about defective diskette, but another computer formatting it without any problem.

    I opened Mac today and saw a leaked electrolytic glue around the capacitors. So I will try to clean motherboard by first.

    Macintosh SE/30 floppy drive

    Hi. Around one month ago SE/30 worked perfectly. Two weeks ago I purchased some floppies with old software at ebay. I tried to copy/install software from they but all of them contains disk errors. Afters this I tried to copy files from my MacBook Pro to SE/30 via USB FDD. MacBook formatted and recorded floppies without any problem (FAT12), but when I tried to read them on SE/30 I got a disk errors. Today I repeated this and SE/30 shows that floppy disk has 500 kb free - that is right, because I writed almost 1 mb on it. But there is no files on the disk! Should I replace FDD in SE/30?

    SE/30 as MIDI sequencer

    Does SE/30 has enough speed and performance to operate with up to 16 MIDI channels while playing/recording of complex melodies? Are there anyone who tried to use SE/30 in studio in the past? "But Serial MIDI boxes were available back in the day" - I found a lot of cheap and cool Opcode Studio rack MIDI interfaces at ebay I also want to try to execute Akai MESA software on this computer.

    SE/30 as MIDI sequencer

    Hi all. I'm collecting old rack synthesizers, samplers and so on. Is it possible to control all of them simultaneously from some kind of MIDI sequencing software? As I know Atari ST had Steinberg Cubase which allows to record and playback a lot of MIDI-tracks. Could I use my SE/30 for making a music on my home retro-studio? Thanks.

    Radius Color Pivot driver

    No, I am using 4x16mb simms + 4x1 mb simms As I remember, I installed all of these files, but I deleted Soft Pivot because I don't need this functional.

    Radius Color Pivot driver

    I tried different combinations https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/27732-mode32-on-se30-with-4-mb-ram/?p=298048 Yesterday I installed A/UX and it is perfectly worked, until I remembered that I forgot to install Radius card. With Radius card computer shows bus error at startup (with A/UX installed or 32-bit addressing enabled in System 7). Without this card computer is fully functional.

    Radius Color Pivot driver

    As I understand, Radius Color Pivot is NOT compatible with extended memory modes on SE/30. I mean MODE32, 32-bit System Enabler and A/UX 3.0 So, only 8 mb RAM with color display, or up to 128 mb RAM but without video expanison

    MODE32 on SE/30 with 4 Mb RAM
