  1. I started using my B&W Revision 2 G3 with a 20 GB drive in 2004, then I added a second disk, 80GB around 2007. The original 20 GB disk failed, so that was replaced with a 40 GB drive, so now I have 120 GB total storage on 2 drives in the machine. And it's still going strong at (or near) its 20th birthday!
  2. There's more to it than that with the Revision A motherboard G3. I had one of these for some time. The size of the hard drive also matters. You may be stuck with a small 6 GB HD in the earlier revision. Get the newer motherboard revision if you can!

    This is worth reading too. It was written by an Apple employee. Macintosh SCSI termination rules

    AppleCD 150 can't read CDs

    No, AppleCD extension was not a standard part of System 7.1. It came on a separate floppy. juanmas: you need the AppleCD extension for your Mac LC II. None of Apple's CD drives or external hard drives are SCSI terminated. You're supposed to have a terminator block on it, if it's the last device on the chain. Here's a good run-down of SCSI termination rules by an Apple employee from 1989.

    This was a known issue in 1987. It was caused by intermittent load on the power supply from the floppy drive. So the ticking is actually coming from a transformer on the analog board, but is ultimately caused by the Sony 800K drive. Read all about it: Ticking Mac

    My Macintosh Plus and 512Ke both make a soft ticking noise when no disk is inserted in the drive.

    I don't know either, but it's a typical situation. It's very quiet, isn't it? I would get the screen flicker issue sorted out first.

    As others have said, it's probably a stripped gear in the ejector. Here's how to fix the Mac 800K Disk Drive Eject Mechanism
  11. That config file should only have a single byte, a single hex digit for the slot number. You need to use a hex editor to do it.

    Floppy drive issue

    "Does the dual 800KB floppy drives supports 1,44MB drives?" No. The Mac SE needs a ROM upgrade and SuperDrive to use 1.44MB HD floppies.
