  1. Nice finds, especially the SCSI Pioneer Nevertheless, one looking for an IDE optical solution should consider the brand new IDE DVD-ROM drives sold on eBay Europe (Spain), Samsung SH-D162 A great device that reads any kind of DVDs, +/-, SL/DL https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lector-DVD-IDE-PATA-40-pin-interno-5-25-16x-Blanco-Samsung-SH-D162/303173142159
  2. Well… I looked at the url for "FTP (sources and binaries)" on the page you mentioned and the ftp link is indeed broken ; I tried the same url in http, and luckily it works : v 0.96 kext is built and available http://ftp.mklinux.org/pub/darwin/floppy/
  3. I have something near, I think, v 0.91. If I recall, I tested it once : it worked on the 9600 but was slow and CPU intensive
  4. DB25 male to DB25 male, termination enabled on the EN/SC, you're done
  5. Any DB25 SCSI cable is OK to connect the Asante Mini EN/SC at the end of chain
  6. Hello, In any PM 9600 config, SCSI card (or SCSi-like) should be in A1 (faster card in top slot, and then) ; according to me your config should look like this : A1 : ACARD 6880 B1 : Empty [suitable for Firewire] [or USB if nothing in C1] C1 : Empty [suitable for USB if Firewire in B1] D2 : Ethernet (in certain circumstances [OS X, intensive networking], Ethernet cards work best when they have priority over Video card here in E2 [when they are in top slot of bottom controller]) [Asante cards should always be there in D2 (OS9, OSX) E2 : IX Micro Video card or
  7. This SE/30 , for sure, has been recapped Pictures of the Motherboard in SE/30HD:Documents
  8. The Digigear SDHC PCMCIA card is 16bit https://www.ebay.com/itm/SD-SDHC-SDXC-to-ATA-Flash-Memory-PCMCIA-PC-Card-Adapter-Reader-for-256GB-128GB/371129508743 ..and very slow in the PowerBook G4's 32bit cardbus slot..
  9. 256Mb (4x64Mb interleaved) are enough and fine for a bare 10.2.8 Unless the 16Mbs are good 60ns EDO with gold connector, I'd give up with them
  10. Unless it has a big L2, a 7200rpm HD and an ATI Video card (any), I don't see what you could do with it... Are the 16Mbs 60ns or 70ns?
  11. If I were in USA I'd get an OWC memory. Currently, in France, those PC100s are difficult to find while one can still get CL3 PC133s. If only I had one, of any capacity, I would try myself...
  12. Not sure that the onboard CL2 PC66 will work with any CL3.. It would be interesting to know if someone has one working in an 366/466 iBook. OWC doesn't show it as compatible : http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/iBooks-PowerBooks/G3-iBook/
  13. Well.. Is it possible to upgrade this 466Mhz FireWire ibook G3 with CL3 SO-DIMM (PC133), or does it only work with CL2 (PC66/100), as specified by Apple ?
  14. i'm sure there is another folder which hosts local shared folders aliases (it isn't the "servers" folder)
  15. restarting extensions Off then re-delete all appletalk prefs & users&groups prefs and then pram is the best one can do otherwise, as a LocalTalk server, nothing's better than Jaguar 10.2.8 ...
  16. If I recall... the file "AppleSharePrep" stands for the Servers to be mounted at Startup, so it is no related to slow AppleShare's startup but can be deleted. And an AppleShare related folder (can't remember the name) inside SystemFolder contains the Aliases to Shared folders on your Mac. If this folder is full it does slow down a lot AppleShare Startup.
  17. remove "AppleShare prep" in prefs and also some AppleShare folder in system folder
  18. Last but not least: is there an L2 dimm on the motherboard ?
  19. i've seen some motherboards not working with G3s while others would do with the same components (i mean swaped ones). And these boards have been perfectly working for years with the original cpu.. they just wouldn't with a G3 card. it's possible that yours is one of them. You might try working with only the original CPU for some time, with full config, after full nvram reset, and then reswap cpu w/cuda reset to G3. Then you will know. In any case you shouldn t use the 2x16Mb dimms that could be 70ns and are anyway useless if not too old and risky. In fact 4x64Mb is enough and perf
  20. sorry marmotte, please just minimal-compact the config and 24 hour out of power your mac then startup
  21. big chips are older no matter edo/fpm, both are compatible and work as fpm just minimal-compact the config and 24 hour out of power your mac then startup then if it doesn't work just go to a friend that has pci powermac and test your hardware otherwise recap mother and daughter boards, as well as the psu or get a mach5 9600 sincerly yours, 604ev
  22. PS the AV card should be unplugged too for testing.. and use original hd & internal scsi please
