  1. Does anyone know if it's possible to create a cable that would enable the 1.44MB Superdrive to be plugged into the external floppy drive port of my Mac? That would be a useful hack!
  2. I've just acquired a Quadra 700 - but it has an unusual problem, and APD thinks that all checks out with the box! When the Quadra is doing nothing, the video (on the Macintosh Colour Display more usually seen connected to my LCIII) is stable and crisp. When it's processing, the video gets a slightly stippled pattern on the right side of any item on the screen (window, mouse pointer, text etc) and when it's accessing the floppy or the hard disk the stippled pattern goes berserk and extends many pixels (over 60 by the looks of it) from whatever the item it's stippling from it. This
  3. Thanks for the tip. Now I just need to get the right caps.
  4. Ouch. I hope not! Where could I get a good replacement CRT from!?
  5. Ohh kay. So now my SE/30 is booting fine, and all seemed well. But… …the screen is rather dim (in fact, totally black until the brightness knob has gone past half-way) - and occasionally shimmys very slightly. You wouldn't notice unless you were looking. Damn. Just when it all seemed to be going so well too. I guess that the problem is with the analogue board. Can anyone point me in the direction of a servicing manual for the analogue board? Does anyone have any helpful hints on what I might need to fix? Just to be clear, the SE/30 digital board has b
  6. You are all absolute legends (especially the creator of the Savage Taylor website). I set up exactly as shown, and added a brand new 16GB SD card for good measure - and now my SE/30 seems to be very happy (on cursory inspection, anyway). I'm going to soak test it with Tetris now! Thank you!
  7. Okay, so my SE/30 is recapped and, in all other respects, works fine. Even the power supply has been serviced. It's 32bit clean, packing 64MB RAM - a real beauty. I could try it with the original ROM SIMM as well, I suppose - except that my LCIII+ (also recapped) has the same problem with the adaptor and card. Once I get this working though, I think I might be tempted to buy another SCSI2SD card for my LCIII+, and retire its hard disk. The SD card that I'm using is a 1GB Kingston that I had knocking around. As I say, it seems to read okay - but the SCSI2SD / SD card combination
  8. What configuration should I use for SCSI2SD (V5.1)? I'm having no luck at all with mine. This is the story. With the old hard drive, my Mac was Sad Mac'ing on every boot. I tried fitting my spare hard disk, loose in the case, and it booted fine (so I don't think that the problem is with my SE/30). Feeling pleased with myself (and also very tired after a long day at work) I fitted it to my SE/30 - and put a mounting screw through the controller board on the hard drive. Which shouldn't even be possible, don't ask, I totally doofus'd. Without another hard drive availa
  9. Yeah - I tried that (and it's an excellent resource). Sadly, it still isn't working!
  10. Awesome work Realitystorm! That website is brilliant. Thanks for this.

  12. The twist is that it isn't for an Apple II. It isn't for an emulator either. What I'd like is an easy way to get ProDOS disk images, or software, in a format that can be readily installed on a Macintosh LCIII with an Apple II card installed. There are lots of sources of Apple II software on the internet, but when I try to copy the files onto my LCIII it almost always ends in failure. Does anyone know where I can get software in the right format, or an easy procedure to convert archives of software on the internet into the right format? All help gratefully received!
  13. I've given my son his grandfather's old G5 - just until he proves that he can look after nice things. I'm not going to splurge the cash on him only for him to break whatever it is that he's been given! The problem I have is that Parental Controls for web browsing don't seem to work any more. It's a G5 running Leopard - and I'd like to restrict adult sites (or possibly restrict his browsing only to approved sites). I don't want him to see anything traumatic! But the web filtering functionality appears to be broken. I've installed Leopard Webkit (because otherwise he
  14. And the prize goes to Bolle! Thank you - you're a top bloke and all round diamond geezer who definitely knows where his towel is. My G4 is happy again!
  15. The Mulitprocessor Plugin theory sounds interesting. Where is this plugin? It's not loose in the System folder AFAICS, nor in the Extensions folder. What's it called?
