    Compact Mac Repair Guide

    Does anyone have a component list for the se/30 analogue board and power supply, i.e. capacitor list? I believe its the same as the se. thanks Neal

    AppleCD 150 can't read CDs

    What I’d meant was downloading and burning files on my OS X machine and then trying the disc on my SE/30 just didn’t work I presumed its was Hfs wouldn’t read it, anything i tried to burn just didn’t read but like others have said it could be due to many reasons on such an old drive. That said for me pre-recorded discs both data and music did work fine. Mind you i have a newer CD-ROM drive than you. I did try both CD-R and DC-RW neither worked for me. Hopefully the terminator will do the trick for you

    Have you tried old CD-ROM software from eBay?

    Weird, I didn’t think iso music standards had changed so that leaves file formats. Hum im just trying to think what i did with mine on 7.1. I lie i did try burning CD-ROMs from my mac mini os x 10.7 and that didn’t work but never really tried any further as I couldn’t get it to recognise the HFS formac so didn’t get anywhere and just gave up, brought some newer bridge macs and zip drives I believe os 8.1 had hfs+ and could be read more easily. I don’t know it was something like that.

    My se/30 reads old data game discs (from eBay) as well as music ok although I’m on 7.5.5, Jonny is right about the write speed you’ll need to have everything at its lowest speed setting when burning ive not tried burning from a new mac though, the newest macintosh i share data with is my 2001 iMac g3 and i do that via zip discs werent CD-ROM discs 650mb back then?

    obvisously it depends on what file types you’re wanting to transfer as there are limited codecs running back on 7.1. Ogg Vorbis is available as is wav with the right software of course so yes in theory between the se/30 and g4

    10.4 can run on intel core duo but it has to be an early 10.4 but it didn’t work for me hence bridge machines are really cheap.

    I use a 2001 iMac with 10.3.9 and 9.2 on it. I had tried to run 10.4.6 from my 2009 mac mini and that didn’t work but since getting the iMac for £20 it bridges new and old really well.

    Alternatively a bridge computer in between old and new seems to be a common approach

    Audio file transfer, what about MIDI? I have a macman adaptor for mine, paid €10 for it on eBay, strangely several older keyboards use zip or floppy as well but midi might work. The only pricey thing I’ve found is getting a nice roland midi module for processing. Just a thought though Midi to usb from new mac, midiman from old and a few din cables hey presto

    I’ve read you can do it via emulation but i failed miserably trying that. Strangely its meant to be a lot easier via a pc of all things...personally i found a few zips drives and a cheap unwanted PowerPc did the trick for me and got me the exposure of using old Mac OS and hardware in the process. A roadkill 6200CD £50, its painfully slow online but works fine on macintosh garden and there’s something satisfying copying files to either floppy or Zip disk and transfering the software via this obsolete media because i can. There are others on here that have managed to transfer though. Neal
