    Zip 100mb from a Win 10 PC to a Mac sys 7.1

    What I do: Win 10 PC + USB zip drive 100 => PC format Zip disk Q700 Sys 7.5 with the iomega extension + SCSI zip drive 100 => read/write PC formatted Zip disks

    Zip 100mb from a Win 10 PC to a Mac sys 7.1

    With 7.1, I always used a control panel "DOS Bestandsuitwisseling" ("DOS file exchange") system prog FN7.1P5, that I saparatelly installed. Made June-10-1993. That works with PC 1.44MB, but not ZIP. But I like 7.5 with its nicer backgrounds and Apple Menu, I`ll keep it. I will find the Dutch version one day Back in the day, our Performa 475 had System 7.1, but also a control panel called "Performa" that added some 7.5 features to 7.1 like the backgrounds and the help menu. It doesn`t work on something else than a Performa though. Btw, that QS 733 that I was going to buy, turned out to be dead, so I got it for free. Luckily it wasn`t a far drive and its case is still perfect.

    Zip 100mb from a Win 10 PC to a Mac sys 7.1

    That's what I did then, installing 7.5 on the Q700. Works fine. Reads PC zips now. On the downside, its the English version, I haven't found the Dutch 7.5 yet. 7.1 was a Dutch version I had for more than 20 years.

    Zip 100mb from a Win 10 PC to a Mac sys 7.1

    If there is a point where Mac could read PC formatted zips, OS9 can read them? With a bridge machine it will be solved. That QS DP I have is an OSX system. I am picking op another QS (733) next week that I want to turn into an OS9 machine and I`m going to install a IDE zip into it.
  5. I have a USB drive that works on a Win 10 PC and a SCSI drive that works on a Q700 with system 7.1. They can`t read the other ones formatted disks though. (they can with a 1.44mb floppy) Is it possible to transfer files via Zip 100 from a modern PC (or Mac) to an old Mac?

    Removing IIci motherboard

    OK got it out. Just use a lot of force.
  7. I have bought a IIci. I want to remove the motherboard but I can`t slide it all the way to lift it out. I watched this video: So I removed the speaker and the reset switches, but I can`t slide it all the way. Just one mm before I could take it out, it blocks. Am I missing something?
  8. I have had a greenish screen connecting an IBM 15" lcd to a Q700. Trying different adapters and settings didn't help. A Viewsonic 15" lcd gave no problems though.
  9. The quadra 700 only uses 256k vram chips. Six slots filled, gives you 2mb total (512k on board). It takes 512k's but only sees 256k of them.
  10. Yes, Aan De Slag means Getting Started. It contains some general info about the hardware, connecting and installing the system software. The label on the box says "Quadra 700 7.0.1 7up"
  11. This is what came with a quadra (Dutch): Macintosh User Manual and Quadra 700 Read Me First.

    Performa 476

    My first computer was a Performa 475 in 1995. After a couple of years it began to shut down after a while. With the top removed, it kept going for longer. Later I got the chimes of death and threw it away. That case didn`t cool a 68LC040 enough I suppose.
