    Adding Wi-Fi to my Mac SE/30

    Thanks for your work When you say the other is more robust, does that mean the Vonets will loose connection to the router more often or otherwise be less reliable?

    Adding Wi-Fi to my Mac SE/30

    I would like to add this wifi to my Compact Macs, but the Vonets VM300 Wi-Fi Module seems not to be available anymore. Are there other similar WIFI modules that may work?
  3. Alternatively: can I get read AND write access to a HFS drive from within OSX 10.11?
  4. Has anyone formatted a SCSI2SD drive with FAT16 and had it recognized in OS7? I tried formatting in Terminal using "sudo newfs_msdos -F 16 /dev/disk3", but OS7 was not able to see it.. (using SCSI2SD v6 via usb). If this was possible then one could just use a usb-cable and SCSI2SD v6 to transfer files between the OS7 Mac and OSX, as they both would recognize FAT16 ! (SCSI2SD v6 give access to the drives via usb just as if there was a scsi-connection)
  5. ..which clearly, also cannot be correct.
  6. You are right. When I change to 256 colors the graphics of pictures and and the clarity of the letters on the desktop got better. When I upgraded I used the disks for OS7.5.3 that are on the internet. (donĀ“t remember the exact link but I have the 19.bin files for the installation, see the install readme file below). What are my options now? Thanks. Name: System 7.5 Version 7.5.3 Version: n/a Released: January 30, 1999 Requires: System 7.5.3 requires an Apple Macintosh or PowerBook computer with at least 4MB of RAM. Note: newer Macintosh and PowerBook computers require versions of System software higher than version 7.5.3 in order to operate. See TIL article 8970 for information on which CPUs support System 7.5.3. Description: This is the North American English version of System 7.5 version 7.5.3, which includes the following system updates: System 7.5 Update 2.0 and System 7.5.3 Revision 2. For further information on System 7.5.3, please consult the Technical Information Library. Instructions: This software is available as 19 parts of a self-mounting Disk Copy image. Download all 19 parts to your hard drive and then double-click on the first part to mount the compressed disk image on your desktop. Note that self-mounting Disk Images require Mac OS version 7.0.1 or later. If you are using a version of Mac OS prior to this, you can download the System 7.5 Network Access floppy disk and boot your Macintosh from that to use this software.
  7. No. (I dont understand the ipad argument.) Eventhough he has taken screenshots I can see that my colourresolution is way worse than his. Trust me on this..
  8. I am just installing a Farallon EtherMac card in my color classic. i have long been thinking that the grahics on my ColorClassic and comparing my screen shot (by Ipad) to the picture in the link (9nth from above) I can clearly see, apart from the raster effects, that my color resolution is not as good as on his webpage. I also think my letters on the desktop are quite blurry. So, what is wrong with my Color Classic compared to this one and what can I do to improve the graphics? They are already on Thousands of Colors in the Monitor Control panel.. Link: http://appletothecore.me/files/color_classc_network_card_install.php You can clearly see my screen has less colorresolution on the "edges of the skies".
  9. Yes, I forgot to mention i already have PC Exchange on the OS7.5.3 SE/30. Can anyone confirm that it will also see a FAT harddrive? I guess when PC Exchange was made installing a FAT hardisk in a SE/30 was not too common..

    Color Classic Can't Boot From Hard Drive Anymore?

    Just my 2 cents: 1) unplug/replug scsi cable on both sides 2) perhaps SD card is defect. Try another.
  11. I am using a SCSI2SD with four drives of 2 Gb each. Would my SE/30 and ColorClassic be able to read one of the drives if I formatted it as FAT16? I know they can read/write to a zip-100 mb disk which is formatted as FAT16, so I got an idea for networking to my OSX mac if it works..
