So I recently acquired a powerpc 8100/110 the hard drive soon broke but fortunately I had a 600 megabyte Drive. But of course with this was supposed to be a 2GB Drive and there is very little space to store anything. And I begin to look around and scsi drives are pretty expensive. But like every retro computer nerd I have a stack of IDE drives at my disposal.But of course there's no way to just slap a IDE drive into a SCSI bus. So I began to look at some I need you to SCSI bridge adapters. Now there are plenty and most of them that are listed are made by acard. But almost all of the bridge cards are extremely expensive to the point of being illogical. But some are $60 or around that price range, still this isn't a great deal. So I was wondering does anyone know of any affordable solutions to have an IDE work on a SCSI bus?

I have a 15" Apple studio display hooked up to my cube. Some months ago I noticed the bottom half of the screen being dim and a the led error blink sequence "short - short - short". According to Apple it means "video output wrong" but the display shows the same error code when hooked up the a powermac G4 MDD, unlikey error it seems. I decided to open the display and check it's internal organs. Nothing seems wrong, but I noticed the following. I took both light bulbs out and connected them to the inverter. The top bulb is working, and when I switched the bulbs, the bottom bulb (connected at the top connector) was working as well. Apparently the bottom connection doesn't get any power. What do you think? Bad inverter board? Or could the problem lie with the logic board? According to someone on Macrumors it could be a heat issue (he had a similar problem where the problem dissapeared when the screen was hot enough - I haven't noticed this yet, the problem is continous)
Hello all, I wanted to hear your thoughts on this; I recently acquired a recapped SE/30 (which as of this past weekend is now using a CF card for solid state storage and super-fast startup!) The machine is beautiful, but what has proven a mixed blessing is the damage to the plastic of the front casing that occurred during shipping (I say this because I ended up getting the machine for free via UPS shipping insurance due to the damage and an unseated ROM SIMM which caused SimasiMac) To cut to the chase: Has anyone had any experience repaired cracked or broken off plastic on these compact macs? My plan is to reattach a piece, fill in the cracks (pictures below) with some kind of material), then sand it down so it is flush with the rest of the casing. Here's a link for a two-step plastic I found, if you have any suggestions or alternative solutions, I'm all ears. http://www.plast-aid.com/ // mdent23
