  1. Hi to everyone! I am new to the forum, and need some help with my Macintosh SE FDHD. I just refurbished and fixed one Macintosh Classic and it works perfectly except SCSI HDD (which sometimes requires side kick to start spinning), for which I already purchased SCSI2SD on eBay and can't wait for it to arrive. Anyway, I started refurbishment of mentioned Macintosh SE FDHD which was in absolutely terrible condition due to battery leakage (more like battery explosion, as it looked like from inside), everything was oxidized ... totally dead. I washed every part of it, b
  2. It's a Newlife Computer Corp CD306C expansion card for the Macintosh Se. I don't know how much, but it adds more RAM, I'm unsure if it's an actual accelerator card with a 68030 processor. Also it has an empty socket. Does anyone have any information on this? I would really appreciate this.
  3. So I acquired my Macintosh SE back in early 2017, when it was fully functional and usable. Since then there have been numerous problems with the machine, the hard drive failed first and it took until recently to replace it with a 50 pin Quantum LPS drive, the floppy drive failed after shortly after the hard drive and was replaced promptly and then the screen began displaying an unusual pattern out of the blue. The images, albeit of relatively poor quality due to my lack of a good digital camera- I am a strong believer in photographic film, attached show the patterns. The startup bong occurs an
  4. Hi, This is my first post on these forums. I felt this would be the best place to come to ask how to get my Macintosh SE working again. So I managed to get my hands on this Macintosh SE. It came with the original manuals, mouse, keyboard, and even a carry bag! I paid around $5 New Zealand dollars for it. Yes I can't believe it either. So when I got it home, I plugged it in and it turned on, and it worked! I think that the disk drive is dead, because it just had the disk logo with a question mark and ejected the yellow protector disk. I left it
  5. Here i have a Macintosh SE/30s that i found on the side of the road with a bunch of keyboards. Only one of them is working but i need to save up for a Floppy Emulator drive to really get this going!Post what you got below! http://www.agoraroad.com/macforum/vintage-computers/what-vintage-macs-do-you-own/

  7. So a few moths ago I bought an SE with 800k internal floppy and 20 MB internal HDD. It worked for about a week before problems started. I was trying to install Word 5.1, but it wouldn't install unless I removed all anti-virus software so I deleted the Norton software on the HDD. When I rebooted the machine, the OS (6.0.8) didn't start up. Figuring that I probably screwed up the OS install by deleting Norton, I downloaded some system 7.0 floppy images and wrote them to some disks using my Powerbook G3. I tried to install system 7, but it said that something was wrong with the HDD and refus
  8. StuffIt 3.5 can’t see some .sit fires. I tried to install Aladin StuffIt 5.something and I don’t have 8mb or RAM on my 4mb SE. is there another software repository where everything for 68k is stored in floppy format (.dsk)? I am using SCSI2SD and Floppy Emu. Thanks.
  9. So I bought an AppleCD 600e drive recently for use with my Powerbook 5300c. Unfortunately, that laptop is having power issues and I don't have the soldering skills to fix it, so for now it is out of commission. This leaves me with a CD-ROM drive that I can't use...or can I? My SE has 4 MB of RAM and runs system 7.0 just fine. If I upgrade to 7.1 I should be able to use the CD drive, right? Are there any programs that came on CD, or that I could put on CD, that will run on an SE with 4 MB of RAM and System 7.1?

  11. I recently obtained my first 68K Macintosh, a Macintosh SE with dual 800k floppy drives. Turning it on, it boots to the blinking question mark screen, but won't read any disks. I'm almost certain that my system disk is fine; I created it with Disk Copy 4.2 on a PowerMac 6100 using this guide. I also plugged in a known working external 800k drive from an Apple IIGS, and it won't read the disk either. I've made sure to bless the system folder on the disk. Assuming that it's an issue with the logic board, which components should I look at replacing? Thanks!
  12. I thought I'd start a new thread focused solely on this topic. The Macintosh SE that I bought a month ago came with a floppy disk labeled "Your Apple Tour of the Macintosh SE". When I tested it the, the disk was read, and I worked through the intro program. So I know it worked not long ago. Meanwhile, I acquired an SE/30 - which promptly ate and destroyed that floppy disk. So the only disk that I knew worked for certain on the Macintosh is not available. I then found some 720k DOS disks and used a Power Macintosh 7100 with Disk Copy to create system disks from the disk images found on the I
  13. I recently picked up a Macintosh SE for $5. The hard disk was dead, as I expected. I put in a boot disk and turned the computer back on. However, I soon realized I was using a System 1.1 Boot disk, which is not compatible with the SE. I don't have an ADB mouse/keyboard, only a 128k/512k/Plus keyboard and mouse. I tried pulling out the disk (I didn't know about the pinhole by the disk drive when I was doing this) , and it came out. I noticed that a small metal bracket is now in the middle of the floppy drive. Is this normal? I noticed it moves upwards when the mac is turned on. I am having some
  14. Hi Everyone - I was snooping around my local electronics Recycling shop and found a Vintage Macintosh External Hardrive. I can't find anything about these units. Made by GCC Technologies "Ultra Drive 20". Did a great clean up - filled with so much dust and debris. I should of taken a before and after picture. Still Powers up. Still have to test with a Serial/SCSI cable to my Macintosh SE to see if it still 100% works. Total price = $10 dollars. Does anyone have any manuals or information on these units? All I know its a third party peripheral similar to the Macintosh Branded ones.

    No, this is the original power cable and I won't change it for one that points down.
