  1. Dr Bott's switch is great (4 ADB Macs with the same monitor, keyboard, mouse) but as you mentioned it is very expensive. I remember some years ago the price was 99$. Now it costs 149$. Regarding the switching i just want to choose the Mac i want to play with so i mind only for the booting in order not to change cables. I don't mind if i cannot choose while both computers are turned on. My office is small and i have one small corner for my retro stuff. I try to find various ways to connect as many computers as i can Right now i have the following connected with switches, audio mixe
  2. something like that for instance? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Switch-DB15-AB-2-Way-Manual-Switch-Box-1347/332787481986?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item4d7badfd82:g:ZNMAAOxyHslQ89E4&amdata=enc%3AAQAFAAACcBaobrjLl8XobRIiIML1V4Imu%252Fn%252BzU5L90Z278x5ickkCrLl8erj3ATP5raQxjc%252F%252B02H59fQ4mQ%252B8f0OULx4SMxbVSPg3NMW71ynheZuujxo62TBLtKvNS%252BJkDMqh%252B5s0k9EE7E8HhGbcZ2%252B%252BFpeA6LC8vav694se86oY%252FGmNTgWk1i8HZkXGJjFyfda9zxfshGtd1t5rDLLhqr%252FaYYbbWMl%252F%252F0hJjY4uL6UjKT%252B3rbKzM2IWnOAz9FZGeN%252FA%252BwSku1Q8xr87lAr52HnFFILeWwZz3Txd%252ByAJ%252BDXRMjDRLsiGg5M96u3R6WPR
  3. Hello, i would like to ask if there is a switch in order to connect two computers with one monitor, the Macintosh Color Display M1212. Right now i have my Performa 6116CD connected and i would like to connect also my Macintosh LC475 which is at basement right now. Due to lack of space i cannot use another monitor. Something easy and economic. Regards Dimitris from Greece
  4. This is no good. One important thing for me is to be able to boot from the SSD.
  5. You mean that you bought the Sata card from the ebay linked above?
  6. Well, it worked. Yesterday night before I turn off the computer, i erased the partition 1 and changed it from extended to standard. I installed again the international version of Mac OS 7.6 (the cd contains various languages and i installed the international English one). Now it boots normally and i installed also the Sonnet G3 drivers with success. So, the steps i did: I initialized the hard drive and created three partitions with disk setup 1.7.3: one standard and two extended. I installed firstly Mac OS 8.1 in partition 2 in order to be able to boot from hard drive and to b
  7. Yesterday evening finally i initialized my hard drive. Again 3 partitions but this time i made all of them extended. I used the drive setup 1.7.3 version. Can Mac OS 7.6.1 be installed in extended format drive? The other times i had the one partition standard and the other two partitions extended. I installed Mac OS 8.1 in partition 2 and runs with success. In partition 1 i tried a cd international Mac OS 7.6 from macintoshgarden and also system 7.5 version for Powermac 6100 but with booting a msg came on screen saying that i have to update my disk.
  8. I will check it when i get home. I will try to install also an international version of 7.6.
  9. It boots normally with the extensions off pressing the shift key. But i don't remember which version of drive setup i used to initialize my hard drive. For a year it was working perfectly until yesterday where my computer stuck with Pirates Gold (which was running just fine every time i was trying it, it's the first time this happened). Then i reset the computer and i couldn't boot with Mac OS 7.6.1.
  10. Back again for this. As i have read in internet, i assume that this problem is common. My Mac is the following: Performa 6116CD Sonnet G3 500 Mhz installed 136mb ram 73gb hard drive Apple 4x scsi cd Apple 8100 video card 4mb For years i had the same problem. I couldn't find a solution. I have 3 partitions on my hard drive: one for Mac OS 8.1, one for Mac OS 9 and for the remaining i want to have the 7.6 because it is really fast and some games (Gobliiins 1, Gobliiins 3, Lost in Time) run only with this version. Last year (after long time) i mana
  11. I agree. Years before i had a typical Philips VGA 14 inches monitor connected with my Mac Performa 6116CD. I started looking for an Apple Monitor and my first choice was the Apple Audiovision 14 Display monitor but it was difficulty to be found and usually very expensive. Finally i bought a Macintosh Color Display Monitor M1212 and i can say that the quality is fantastic. It has great sharp picture and all games look great. My dos computer is connected with a nice Sony 15" trinitron monitor and it is next to my Macintosh Color Display Monitor. I can say that Mac graphics which use usually bigg
  12. So, what happened? Did you buy the Apple Audiovision Display? i would like to read your opinion. As i have read it is one of the best CRT Apple monitors.
  13. My computer is a Power Macintosh G3 Minitower (300 mhz, 768mb ram, 120gb hd, Mac OS 8.1 and 9.2.2 installed, Ati Radeon 7000 32mb Mac edition). I use it for retro gaming. - This card is for sata I speed only? - What is the maximum speed that I can have with an ssd for this computer? - Does it have big difference on speed comparatively to ide hd? - In numbers, what (indicatively) speed may i have? - Can i boot from the ssd? - Generally is it worth having an ssd on this computer? thanks
  14. Has anyone tried this? https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Port-SATA-PCI-Controller-Card-Apple-Macintosh-PowerMac-G3-G4-G5-SSD-OSX-OS-9-/254669346388?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  15. Thank you for the info. I have the Roland SC88 manual and it has the same computer cable wiring diagram. It seems that a serial cable is suitable for the connection but i am not totally sure. I have an extra cable and i will try to test it. If it's possible, i want to connect the SC88 with my Powermac G3 Minitower without using a midi interface device like the Macman Midi.
