    SCSI2SD Issues

    If you have others working just fine, I’d try taking one of their SD cards, put it in the problematic unit, and see if that rules out the issue. If yes, formatting issue. If issue persists, firmware configuration issue on the SCSI2SD itself. If that’s the case, I’d download the firmware from the web, reflash it, then make sure config matches a known good unit.

    SCSI2SD Issues

    I generally just stick to 1.99gb partitions (except for my pm6100 that I let utilize the whole sd card), just to be safe.

    SCSI2SD Issues

    @techknight if I’m not mistaken (though I may be), the SCSI2SD v5.x boards have on board termination and I want to say it is enabled out of the box (physically on older red boards, via firmware on newer green boards) I’ve had great luck setting up ~5 of these (SE/30, SE FDHD, CC, LC520/50, and a PM6100), all bus powered with only one of which I tried to play with the config settings on. Usually I just pop in a new SD card, plug into the Mac, and use Lido to partition the SD into ~2gb partitions (except the pm6100, let it have all the space on OS 9.1). I give 4 partitions and leave the rest blank. I imagine the starting format of the SD card is fat/exfat or whatever would be PC compatible. Lido reformats it to Mac HFS. On the pm6100 after Lido I think I reformatted from finder to HFS+ prior to OS install iirc. But it’s been about a year since I set one up, maybe newer firmware has a bug or something.

    Studio Display m7613

    Thank you @Juror22 and @OleLila for the advice. I usually try to avoid taking things apart until I have all the replacement pieces on hand so I can complete the project in one go, but it’s looking like that won’t be possible in this case. I’ll probably open it up next weekend and see if I can’t locate the number. The real shame is that, aside from the gouge marks, the panel is impressively bright. Oh well.

    Bump, anyone?

    Studio Display m7613

    Hi all, I bought a 15” Apple Studio Display, model M7613. It’s one of the early flat panel displays that matches the early PowerMac G4 plastics (think 350mhz G4, AGP graphics model, and maybe the digital audio model?), with a DVI and USB connector, and 1024*768 resolution. At any rate, the LCD panel has a few gouges in it. Does anyone know the part number for the LCD panel? I’d like to try to replace it to make it like new again.

    Building a Spotify player for my Mac SE/30

    @ants Thank you for all your help on this. Do you remember which retailer you got your 16M version at? Both Amazon and Newegg only carry the 16M version with internal antennas.

    @ants I was actually just typing up an update when I saw your reply. I found that same OpenWRT page too (https://openwrt.org/unsupported/nand_flash). No worries, now we know so we can document this so that anyone else that attempts this setup knows which version to purchase. Did some quick research, and it looks like the GL-AR300M NAND memory portion isn't supported for the installation of OpenWRT. The NAND version does supposedly also have some NOR memory on board, but getting the ar300m/-ext to check there for booting purposes is an exercise (after enough failed boot attempts from nand memory it might attempt booting from nor memory for one boot cycle). And even then, it's unclear if the onboard software will allow the "nor" version of OpenWRT 18.06.x to be applied. So based on all this, the "safe" list of GL-AR300M versions are: GL-AR300M16 (internal antennas, 16m NOR memory only) GL-AR300M16-Ext (external antennas, 16m NOR memory only) --The version you (@ants) are using And the two that aren't supported at this point in time (at least, not without some sort of workaround): GL-AR300M (internal antennas, 128m NAND memory and maybe 16m NOR memory as fallback) GL-AR300M-Ext (external antennas, 128m NAND memory and maybe 16m NOR memory as fallback) The product info above I found at https://www.gl-inet.com/products/gl-ar300m/

    @ants Gave that image a try, but still the same error. Basic Interface (non-advanced settings): Listed at bottom of screen: Model ar300m NAND (so I think you are right on the nand version, I'll give a few more nand options a try) Luci Interface: Here are some details from the system: Model: GL-AR300M Firmware: LEDE Reboot 17.01.4 r3560-79f57e422d / LuCI lede-17.01 branch (git-17.290.79498-d3f0685) System/Software/Configuration/Distribution Feeds: src/gz packages http://www.gl-inet.com/lede/2.27/ar71xx/nand (so again I think you are right about the nand memory) Details from System Log: Mon Apr 9 21:17:36 2018 kern.info kernel: [ 0.000000] CPU0 revision is: 00019374 (MIPS 24Kc) Mon Apr 9 21:17:36 2018 kern.info kernel: [ 0.000000] SoC: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9533 ver 2 rev 0 Mon Apr 9 21:17:36 2018 kern.info kernel: [ 0.117209] MIPS: machine is GL-AR300M Mon Apr 9 21:17:36 2018 kern.info kernel: [ 0.834536] nand: device found, Manufacturer ID: 0xc8, Chip ID: 0xb1 Mon Apr 9 21:17:36 2018 kern.info kernel: [ 0.841168] nand: Giga Device GD5F1GQ4U 1G 3.3V 8-bit Mon Apr 9 21:17:36 2018 kern.info kernel: [ 0.846381] nand: 128 MiB, SLC, erase size: 128 KiB, page size: 2048, OOB size: 128 I'll keep digging around in that NAND directory at openwrt's site, maybe one of them will do the trick. Thank you for the tip on memory type differences.

    Building a Spotify player for my Mac SE/30

    @ants I'm trying to get this set up, however I seem to be hitting a roadblock. While trying to upgrade my GL-AR300m mini router to a current (18.x) version of OpenWRT (using image openwrt-18.06.4-ar71xx-generic-gl-ar300m-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin) from within the Luci interface, I get the message "The uploaded image file does not contain a supported format. Make sure that you choose the generic image format for your platform." I have re-downloaded a few times, using both safari and firefox but always get the same error. Also tried openwrt-18.06.0-ar71xx-generic-gl-ar300m-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin but still get the same message. Any ideas?

    Try using Lido to format your card into 2gb partitions.

    Macintosh TV questions

    Congratulations! That monitor needs some adjustment. The Macintosh TV service manual will have the instructions(it will specify cutoffs, how much black border, etc), and I think you will need Apple display service program to show the patterns. overall though, looks good! Startup chime loud and clear?

    Shipped an LC 5xx based system!

    A different type of conquest today. I managed to successfully pack and ship a Macintosh TV from Arizona to New York and it arrived safe and sound, in one piece. With everyone’s experiences shipping LC 5xx based systems, I was extremely hesitant. In the end, I went with the following: Heavy duty extra large moving box from uhaul. Then deconstructed large boxes from Lowe’s and used Tacky glue to increase the strength of the box. An entire roll of 1 inch bubble wrap from Lowe’s. Gave a good 4 or 5 inches around the entire system, then taped tight around the corners to form good cushion from every angle. An incredible amount of peanuts on the bottom of the box (3 inches worth). Then various cushion materials to keep the computer centered in the box. Last, packing paper to hold the keyboard and other accessories centered in the top of the box. The computer was orientated screen face down. All in all, nearly $50 and 4 hours time spent in packing materials alone. BUT, it did make it across the country in one piece.

    Best ROM disk for ROMinator / GGLabs?

    What’s the size difference between disk copy 4.2 and 6.3.3? 6.3.3 has the ability to mount disk images. Could be a handy feature.
