  1. One thing to know : i have a 12" monochome and the display works only with old Macintosh. I have searched many times to found a solution : the display need composite sync avec many modern computer don't do that with adapter. I have made an adapter for that : https://www.journaldulapin.com/2020/01/06/ecran-monochrome/
  2. It depends. It will work in a Power Mac G3... if there is a jumper to disable the BIOS from the card.
  3. I search a specific things, can you help me ? I search a ROM dump from the LaserWriter 810 Pro. Actually, i have found many pages with reference to an easter egg with this printer, and i will verify that... and i must find the ROM. I have not found a printer to make the dump. My article about that : https://www.journaldulapin.com/2019/04/20/pizza-burrito-imprimante/ (in french) There is information about that on this pages : http://www.mackido.com/EasterEggs/LaserWriters.html https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13439752 https://en.everybodywiki.com/Stump_the_Exper
  4. Actually, it will be complicated. The QT200 use Smart Media 5V card, and many readers can only read the 3,3 V card. But it's possible to find an USB reader (i have a Fujitsu model for that) or just use the serial cable. I have made a Python script to transfer the photos, and it works with modern and old computers if you have Python and a serial port. https://github.com/Dandumontp/QuickTake200
  5. I have tried on a Mac, and it's buggy. I have a Smart Media version : it's slow, you must insert battery into the fake floppy, and on the Mac, you can only read files. I have a Memory Stick version too, but it will not work. And i know there is a Multimedia Card version, too.
  6. Actually, i can force 640x480 @ 66 with SwitchresX, it's not the problem. The problem is the sync : i see the image "scrolling" when i use the correct timing.
  7. Hi, I have a little problem. I have found a 12" monochrome monitor (High Res) and i will try to connect the display to a modern Mac. And it will not work : https://www.journaldulapin.com/2018/08/17/crt-apple/ The display is working with an old Mac LC, with a Power Mac G3 (beige), but not with a modern computer. It's a fixed definition model (640x480@66) but when i try with DA15 to DB15 adapter, i can have an image, but not the synchronisation. This page say the display use a composite sync, but even with an adapter who can use (i presume) the composite sync, it will n
  8. The solder pad is for a ROM slot, not for a RAM slot.
  9. Hi. It's old, but i have found a GM ROM with 8 chip, and i have dumped the content : http://down.dandu.be/ROMb With this ROM, i can boot the Pippin from an hard drive.
  10. The ZV Ports is also used for the MPEG2 card for PowerBook G3.
  11. I have found the information into the LPX-040 motherboard developer note : https://web.archive.org/web/20030410054223/http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/hardware/Developer_Notes/Macintosh_CPUs-PPC_Desktop/LPX-40_Dev_Note.pdf The Cudla Lite is on the clone logic board and on Power Mac 4400. It's like a CUDA classic chip with PS/2 support. On the clone from Motorola, there is PS/2 port, on the Power Mac 4400, there is trace on the logic board only.
  12. Is this possible tu dump and recreate a CUDA Lite chip ? It would be fun to add PS/2 Mouse and Keyboard on a Mac. I thunk it's the same chip, but with more memory and code inside the firmware to handle PS/2 peripherals. On the Mac side, the Power Mac 4400 use this chip, but without the component to use PS/2 (the trace are on the motherboard)
  13. I have one like that, but my model is an USB mouse, with an ADB adapter : https://www.journaldulapin.com/2017/04/12/optical-usb-adb/
  14. Mac OS X is not writing to HFS since many years. Actually, there is no reliable solution. At home, i use a Raspberry Pi with A2server as a "proxy" : old Mac and modern Mac can write and read on it.

    Apple IIe card

    It works with Floppy Emu : https://www.journaldulapin.com/2018/02/24/apple-iie-card/ Actually, it works too with the internal floppy disk, without problems. The size of the disk image is a little problem : if the disk image is not the exact size (800 KB or 140 KB), the Floppy Emu will not see it. If you connect the Floppy Emu to the Mac internal or external floppy connector, you must use 800 KB disk image and the Mac firmware. And if you try the Floppy Emu with the external cable on the Apple II card, it's important to use the right firmware. You
