  1. Today I returned to my Quadra 950 projects and discovered an odd problem. I have two of these, both were working as of a month or so ago, and today they BOTH fail to recognize the keyboard or mouse which of course makes it hard to control boot up options never mind do anything useful. Tried the obvious: different keyboards, cords, etc. and verified that the keyboard, mouse, and cables I'm using work fine on a Mac IIsi. Strange that BOTH computers developed the same symptoms at the same time. Anybody else seen this kind of problem on vintage Macs? The older they get, the more electronic issues they develop. To my knowledge these have not been re-capped. Batteries were replaced at some point in the last couple of years so I believe they are good. I may retest on another power outlet just because I find it so strange this appeared so suddenly on both machines at the same time. Any advice on troubleshooting, workarounds, or true solutions appreciated. Heartbreaking to lose my Attila the Mac pair. I'm like Noah saving the species 2 by 2. Craig
  2. I recently picked up an Apple IIgs. Everything is working except the mouse. I even tried using the ADB-USB Wombat (which allows you to connect USB mouse and keyboards to an older Apple computer). And the usb mouse did not work either. The ADB keyboard works fine. The USB keyboard works fine (when hooked up with the ADB-USB) I checked in the IIGS Control Panel (loading during startup of the Apple) and the Slot 4 is set to Mouse (was told it needed to be that way). The motherboard is super clean, and the battery is not exploded, its actually working and has todays date on it SO I loaded up zany golf game, and its runs and sounds fine. But the mouse doesnt move anywhere on the screen. I also had a copy of like GEOS 5.xx and the mouse cursor looks like its in the upper left of the menu area on the screen, but it never moves anywhere I tried using 3 different ADB keyboards and 3 different ADB mice, and different combinations of them..and the mouse never works I am fairly new to these apple retro computers. Have you ever seen the mouse not work. And am I supposed to be loading some kind of a mouse driver first? Maybe that is the simple reason it doesnt work. But I was under the impression that the AppleIIGS would just make the mouse work without any drivers???? Thanks for any advice on this. Am hoping I can get this mouse working PS Also, I hooked up a joystick and it worked fine in a game. So its like everything is working except a mouse :-(((
  3. I have developed an adapter for using USB keyboards and mice over ADB. View a video demonstration of the prototype below. It is powered by the ADB bus and hosts USB keyboards, mice, and hubs. The production version will have an integrated hub with two ports (one keyboard, one mouse). The prototype is functional, but there is a lot of work left to do. Designing the PCB, implementing some additional firmware features I have planned, designing an enclosure, implementing a test suite, etc. Expecting to be able to ship them in 1Q 2017.

    Branching PowerKey ADB Cable?

    Does anyone know anything about the PowerKey Classic's ADB cable? Here's the diagram they show from the manual: I've got one coming in a few weeks, but it doesn't appear to include the cable. Would just using a simple passive S-Video splitter work?

    Help: Making an ADB Extension Cable

    Hello all, I have a spare ADB lead which I cut off of an AppleDesign keyboard and an ADB port that I unsoldered from a scrap IIci 'board. I would like to attached them together to create an ADB extension cable. Does anybody know what each colour wire corresponds to?
