  1. iBook G3 cd rom drive wont stay closed

    Just got a drive from eBay. It wasn't cheap, but has all the hardware.
  2. I just got a Clamshell with a completely dead battery. I decided I wanted it to work, so I took apart a working, but used battery. I transferred the cell pairs into the housing, and connected it all up again. It isn't perfect, and the housing is held together with electrical tape, but boy, does it work! 4.5 hours of battery life! WOO!
  3. iBook G3 cd rom drive wont stay closed

    It might be completely fugly, but I could probably put another drive in there. It wouldn't match the faceplace though. Anyone got a drive?!
  4. iBook G3 cd rom drive wont stay closed

    It has a piece of plastic that is a catch snapped off internally.
  5. iBook G3 cd rom drive wont stay closed

    Never mind, it's broken in a way I really can't fix...
  6. iBook G3 Clamshell

    Thanks! I like snow! Up here in Maine, we get a lot!
  7. iBook G3 Clamshell

    Here goes! I recently traded iBook G4s for an iBook G3 clamshell! It works great, although the cosmetics are not the best! I also immediately recelled the battery, and so far, it's been running 3 hours on a charge! Thanks @jack for your time!
  8. I have an iBook G3 clamshell with a pop out cd drive that won't stay closed. It works fine and reads cd's if you hold it or tape it shut, but it won't latch. Can I have some help fixing it? If not, will anyone sell me a drive for really, really cheap?
  9. iBook G4 to G3 Clamshell Mod

    I just tried it, and I can confirm, putting a different barrel size on their works fine!
  10. SE/30 Damaged Pad at C3.. part at Y1?

    Flip it over and see if you can find where the via goes. It looks eaten away. Use a multimeter to check yourself.
  11. External SCSI-mounted SCSI2SD Housing?

    Yes, I don't see why not. You just need a cn50 cable like used in a scsi external drive, and just plug the scsi2sd into that. You should just be able to use it normally.
  12. iBook G4 to G3 Clamshell Mod

    I have extra iBooks G4 chargers and I don't want to use Chinese power supply's. They seem like a fire hazard.
  13. Is it possible to modify an iBook G4 power adapter to an iBook Clamshell? Thanks.
  14. Macintosh Plus

    I found that rather amusing. Yea, I think you should be able to use it. Give it a power up to test it. If it doesn't immediately sound awful, buy an 88MB Cartridge or 2. I think they are cheap on eBay. They make good storage for compacts.
