    China Ebay 68040 processor

    Well, here is the report with the 68LC040 on board. So I thought they must be the same.. Perhaps someone could confirm.

    I gathered my courage and changed the CPU And.. it does not seem to have a FPU. PayPal dispute next. Where can you buy a legitimate 68040 nowadays?

    China Ebay 68040 processor

    Oh dear. Will I risk the LC575 logic board if I try? If so, perhaps I should leave it at that Would I expect to see improvements in audioediting operations (e.g. in Alchemy) with a floating point unit? Soundfiles are stored as integers in the digital audio formats I assume and not floating points..

    On OS8 one could see the processor in the System Profiler, but I cannot find similar thing in OS7.5.3..
  5. How can I check if my 68040 is legit and not a rebranded LC68040? On OS7.5.3. Picture below
  6. Not yet, because i found a way that is working now. I guess I have found a way works and I am satisfied with this (By the way, I erroneously referenced PB170s first post when i should have qouted his second post, in my last post)
  7. Hi. i just saw your answer: That might explain why AIFF files that are edited on OSX10.11 are not possible to open from within Alchemy, but WAVE files are (I assume here that the WAVE files has not changed format) - I might be on thin ground here though.. I am not able to open the AIFF or WAVE files (i.e. recognizing that it is with doubleclicking on any of the two filetypes from within the 7.5.3 Finder. (AIFF and WAVE files that are edited in OS7.5.3 in Alchemy I can doubleclick on in Finder and they are automatically opened in Alchemy.) But I guess that has to do perhaps with creator-codes (or something like that) not being kept in OSX versions later than 10.4.x when transferred between machines, so the Finder does not know which program to associate the files with.. perhaps

    FTP and OS7.6

    I am using 32 mb in the Mystic upgrade now. I think that is a perfect compromise - shorter startuptime than having a full 128 mb and while at the same time more than enough for my needs. FTP also works really well now - lightning quick! So far I am using 2 Gb drives on my SCSI2SD stemming from ´starting on OS7.1. I guess I can make the drive sizes 4 Gb now in 7.5.3 and even up to 2 Tb per harddisk if i should decide to upgrade to OS7.6?
  9. It has gradually stopped working, causing my hardware to hang on stratup. Since some of my old hardware only accepts these old drive types I need to have it working. Will it be possible to try and rescue it / repair it?
  10. Perhaps. I bought the ethernetcard about 8 months ago and it is looking similar to the kind of Farallon ethernetcard you can buy on ebay now for 15 USD with the driver floppy disk. I had very slow performance on the CC. It will be interesting to test it on the LC575. It was called "Macintosh Color Classic Ethernet Card Apple LC 575 PDS Farallon New"

    FTP and OS7.6

    Ok. I actually was lucky to find a LC575 logicboard that I´ll install in the Color Classic shortly. Perhaps I should install 7.6 on this? I think I read somewhere that this will be more stable than 7.5 on a LC575.
  12. @nglevin Thanks for your good answers, as always. I suppose that the SCSI implementation in 7.1.1 Pro will be the same as in 7.1 and not possible to improve on (in this generation of OS). So upgrading to 7.1.1 Pro will probably not solve my SCSI problem and I should not attempt it. I need a system that works bort wrt SCSI and FTP. In my experience the SCSI-implementation is better in 7.5.3 than in 7.1 w.r.t. interfacing to other, older SCSIequipment (7.1 scsi is not usable, but 7.5.3 SCSI works fine). My Color Classic had 7.1 when I got it two years ago so I have tried both 7.1 and 7.5.3. I guess then that my best bet perhaps will be to upgrade my CC logicboard to a Lc575, still keep system 7.5.3(which works wrt SCSI) and hopefully the CC will then both be faster and work better wrt FTP, than my CC does now. @mraroid cool down.. please.
  13. I downloaded SSW-7-Pro-Disk-Images from MacintoshGarden and followed the instructions for installing system 7.1.1 Pro and ran the Compatibility Checker which instructed me to remove a lot of files from the old 7.1 system folder including the 401 enabler, which I did Of course now my CC won´t restart so I can´t continue the installation, but assuming I get my backup SD card into my SCSI2SD drive so I can boot system 7.1; is there a specific way to install System 7.1.1 Pro on the CC that will work? Is it possible? The best would be to install 7.1.1 Pro (over my 7.1) in such a way as not having to reinstall all my old applications. The reason I want to try 7.1.1Pro is that using FTP on OS7.5.3 proved much too slow for it to work reliably.
  14. I forgot to mention, the audio editor I have installed is Alchemy v3 in OS7.1. None of the file associations in Finder for the transferred sound files are correct, they both show up as document type, but this is not so cruical since I am able to open the WAV files from within Alchemy. Another observation is that when I used zip-disks to transfer WAV and AIFF files to the the exact same thing happens; I could only open the WAV files. I think PC Exchange plays a role here because if my memory is right I was not able to read WAV files either before installing PC Exchange (but it only seems to convert the WAV files correctly and not the AIFF files). So, probably some creator/type code/information is missing for the AIFF files when they go from from OSX10.11 to OS7.1 that PC Exchange is not able to correct, but that is ok as long as I am able to open WAV files. Usng ResEdit for each file will be too timeconsuming when working on lots of files. The reason for trying to get FTP to work was that the ZIP disk not an alternative for file transfers as it was not reliable. sometimes, when the zip disk is connected, I get the grid pattern on startup and the SE/30 freezes, even though have recapped the logic board - not sure why this happens..
  15. Finally updating to OpenTransport 1.1.2 solved it. I am able to open WAV files, but not AIFF files.
