  1. btw im also wondering is anyone has had issues enabling appletalk on the se/30, its probably an issue with my Mac but with apple talk disabled everything runs fine and I can say use fetch to download some files from my server but if I turn on appletalk it hangs during boot if the ethernet it plugged in... I was just hoping to confirm from anyone else here that has this running with an se/30 as I suspect I either have a bizarre fault on my logic board or there's something going on with the driver that needs to be modified. ive tried sys 7.0.1, 7.1, 7.5.3, 7.5.5 with and without open transport v
  2. could you add a 50pin IDC header behind the 25pin sub connector? im sure there's a few people who would like to install this internally (myself included) also a 2pin header footprint next to the D3 led to allow the option on wiring up a led rather then soldering a smt led... keep the smt footprint though, but just gives the option for an external led to be mounted say where the se/30 hdd led goes (hope that makes sense) Im not sure if would work well or not but perhaps some m3 mounting holes on the board could be useful as well also a pinheaded to enable or disabl
  3. nah i didn't find you argumentative or anything so no dramas there yeah im not to sure like I have some Mac rom Simms that are 1.38mm and 1.40mm so I honesty don't know what the situation is there? maybe some of the Mac roms came from different suppliers with different tolerances in their pcbs fab houses? im from Australia myself so if its not in metric measurements I have no clue lol I was mainly just trying to let you know that Bolle's ram sims work great and not to worry about if they would work or not as you can shim them with some tape etc ive had many r
  4. well i can 100% confirm bolle's 2 chip simms he posted here work fine. i had some issues with the sim socket connections that was fixed by adding some caption tape to the back side of the sim pcbs i used 3 or layers myself but you may only need 1-2 yourself. i also had to add 2 layers of kapton tape to my 8mg ROM Simm but i did replace the socket awhile ago with a better quality one so you may have different results there. if you're worried about it working, honestly dont as they will either work fine or just need some tape to thicken them up a little... im pretty
  5. i just had some of Bolle's 2-chip sims manufactured at 1.2mm thickness, i applied 3-4 layers of kapton tape to the back side near the contacts for the sockets and they work fine, my se/30 shows the full 128mb, i think the exact spec of thickness required is about 1.37mm, but using the tape has been reliable for me over the last week or so in daily use
  6. Now that I've got this running 100% I was wondering if there is any way to make the driver load on a unsupported Mac model. my SE/30 has an install of 7.6.1 (os 8 at some stage too) and I had to 'fool' the Mac to think its a Quadra 700 for it to boot this version of the system, but the NuvoLink extension complains on start up that this model isn't supported so I was wondering if there's anything I can hack in resedit to get it to load?
  7. it turns out that my build chain on my mac is doing something strange, it would build the firmware and when flashed to the xmega the sd hdd would work but not the lan, and it would freeze up the se/30 mac i was running it on.. i ended up switching to a linux VM and building the firmware on that and now everything works as expected
  8. yes that looks like the way to go, convert to a TTL Digital signal that can then be converted to analogue rgb vga
  9. just wondering if anyones had a similar issue of getting a crash to macsbug with when trying to shutdown the ir mac when the drivers are installed but the device isn't connected. i built one of these up and this seems to happen every time its not hooked up via scsi unless i remove the driver from the extension folder. just not sure if its an issue on my end with my setup or if others had had similar issues.. again this is a driver issue not a issue with the scuznet board
  10. that sounds really interesting, do you have a forum threat here or anything where i can follow your project? i was mainly just looking into this out of curiosity, but if you're already working on something that i can read about then that would more then satisfy my interests
  11. yeah 100% need the internal fan in the color classic, that analogue/psu board has a lot of high current devices on it that generate lots of heat. as will all electronics that live stressful lives (such are CRT driving circuitry and switch PSU's from way back) the cooler you can keep the ambient temps around those components the longer they will live. for example while you can get caps that are rated at 85C and 105C even if the temps around say are only 50-60C the 105C caps will long outlast the 85C ones. those max ratings are just that, max ratings and overtime the more stress they incur the s
  12. I have an ossc but being that is purely a RGB scan convertor, im not sure that is would even be possible to use that with the composite output of the se/30. if I can find enough specs onfo regarding the type of composite signals (and the h/v-sync) coming form the logic board then making an adaptor shouldn't be that difficult. as for the refresh rate timing well there are options for converting scan rates to more modern frequencies, it just depends what those are really. I do need to download and read that book Cheesestraws mentioned above so hopefully that will shed some light on this a bit fu
  13. thanks for the info! I'll have a look and see what I can learn from that book
  14. just wondering if anyone knows much about getting Video output from these old classic Macs directly from the logic board harness, correct me if im wrong but I think the se/30 has some form of a composite out pin as well as (I think) h/v-sync pins... so im wondering about if its possible to adapt those signals to a modern display. Im sure ages ago I read about the signal being TTL and maybe needing to be inverted but its just an idea that popped into my head and I wanted to see if anyones done this before or knows of and information about it on the web that could be used as a starting point for
  15. just wondering if you'd had a chance to check out the overclock option and if so what results you go and if you had any issues with reliability etc, mainly just curious tbh, had no issues myself during my short testing but who knows long term sort of thing.. also have you had a chance to test throughput of read and write using different sdcards yet? would be good to get some further results regarding transfer speeds beside what I posted the other day
