  1. Nope, I tested it with a IIci and a IIsi, nothing work...
  2. I used RaSCSI with my Macs with a Pi 3 and Zero W, every time with a direct wiring, but honestly it doesn't work so good. My Macs and their SCSI controllers are still alive.
  3. Hi everybody! I'm restoring a bunch of Apple Desktop Bus mice that I found in my house, I'm also recapping them and I did a capacitors list. 1x 10uF 16V 1x 1uF 50V 1x 0,47uf 50V
  4. CORRECTION /Volumes/YOURVOLUME/YOUROS9SYSTEMFOLDER I forgot the / before Volumes
  5. SOLVED So, a user into MacOS9Lives' Facebook group pasted me a terminal line: /usr/sbin/bless --folder9 "Volumes/YOURVOLUME/YOUROS9SYSTEMFOLDER" -saveX --use9 --setOF /usr/sbin/bless --folder9 "Volumes/YOURVOLUME/YOUROS9SYSTEMFOLDER" -saveX --use9 --setOF; /sbin/reboot ^------- If you want to reboot your Macintosh after executing the script I simply pasted the first line to a text file and gave the text file to the terminal, the eMac successfully rebooted into OS 9.2.2 1) Go to Terminal 2) type "sudo nano goto9"
  6. Yep, I posted the issue in OS9Lives' Facebook group but no luck, another person had my same problem and frustration but without solution
  7. Hi everybody! Yesterday I installed Mac OS 9.2.2 on my “Unsupported” eMac G4 (1 GhZ, 40 GB, 1 GB, ATI 7500) with the MacOS9Lives disc on the second partition of my hard disk and 10.4.11 on the first partition. OS 9.2.2 works like a charm on my eMac G4 and I really want to keep it with 10.4.11, I created two separated partitions to switch the OS in the Open Firmware’s boot manager and here’s the trouble: it’s completely buggy and it doesn’t works so well with the wireless keyboard and mouse I have on the eMac, it only works with the original Pro Mouse that I use on my Quicksilver, but
  8. How do you attached the IDE drive to the SCSI controller? Is that board an IDE to SCSI?
  9. All the mothern ATX PSUs have 4 pin square connectors called "P4", maybe you can search on eBay or Aliexpress and see what matches with the molex connector with your LC, or maybe you can do a very dirty thing: remove the pins from an ATX connector (I think the pins from the 20 pin plug are the best for this job, they are thinner than the pins in the IDE molex plugs), solder a male Molex plug to them, put the pins part into the LC female port and hot-glue them... Yeah, it's so raw
  10. UPDATE 16/6/2018 I had an ASTEC PSU on my LC, not a TDK one. However, I changed these caps and... no more fish smell! Now my LC is "usable" :')
  11. Using an Arduino as SCSI device would be a beautiful thing, however, SCSI2SD has a Cortex M3 based microcontroller, the only Arduino with M3 is the "Due" model.
  12. Unfortunately you can't downgrade the firmware, put OS 9.2.2 which is more stable than 8.6
  13. I use my IIci with an ATX PSU, I manually power it by shorting PS_ON and a GND rocker switch, never had an issue, I use it also with IIsi and I used it on the Q700
  14. Hi everybody! I want to pick up an iMac G3 350/400 MhZ board to adapt it in an ATX case, does someone have a diagram for attaching an ATX PSU to the G3's mobo? Can I get the video directly from the external VGA port? Thank you
  15. I know, my SCSI2SD v5 board has 100ohm resistor packs. However, I'll hope that they'll release the v5 board's sources in future (It's an improbable thing, but dreaming is costless)
  16. At the moment I gave up and stored the compiled source everything in my HDDs, cloning this board is too expensive, especially for the 5LP and the 110 ohm resistors that costs an eye here in Italy. When I'll want to burn money I'll clone it, at the moment I want to build DA15-VGA adaptors for my Macs. Oh, a week ago I tried for the second time RaSCSI on my Pi Zero W, It's usable, but on 030 Macs doesn't works (I don't know why) and on 040 Macs sometimes it disappears, I used it well on my 6500/270, I also booted 7.6.1 from it, so, I think I'll build a RaSCSI cable.
  17. I need to do them for SCSI2SD (SIP-10 bussed resistors cost a lot here in Italy) but I need 100 ohm for recreating the 4610X-101-101LF, I need only to put 100 omh resistors in each pin? (except the first, obviously)
  18. I was asking myself the same thing, the 5LP costs about an eye for a single piece, but this would imply software and PCB adapting
  19. There are two pins on the IIsi for choosing beetween onboard ROM and SIMM ROM, if you short these the IIsi will boot from the SIMM ROM
  20. Good find, man! However, yes, re-cap it, IIsi with bad caps tends to freeze while in System, only after re-capping my IIsi I was able to use it after years of random freezing. Fortunately it has only 47uF 16V caps.
  21. I'm buying the Segger J-Link OB for flashing the LP5 via SWD on Eclipse, I have only to export the Cypress projects to Eclipse (because Cypress Project doesn't support the J-Link natively) When I compiled the SCSI2SD (not the USB_Bootloader project) the compiler wanted the USB_Bootloader.hex file for creating the SCSI2SD.hex file, so, I think that the compiler stuffs everything in the SCSI2SD project.
  22. "Another visitor, stay awhile, stay forever!" Okay, I was joking about the C64 game, "Impossible Mission" is referred to this idea. Hi everybody! So, I'm an happy owner of SCSI2SD v5 board, I use it in an external box, it works great and I use it on every SCSI Mac that I have, but they are too expensive in my opinion: I want to produce 2 boards for my childhood's lovely Macintosh IIsi and my PowerBook 145B, the 2.5 board "PowerBook edition" is more expensive than the 3.5 one so, why don't try to clone it? Obviously I clearly know that isn't an easy thing but giving a try
