  1. I’ve always wondered if the portable would be compatible with the IIe PDS card, I tried googling and couldn’t come up with a result, I own neither but I’m just curious. I know there would need to be some kind of riser card to allow the IIe card to connect to the PDS slot but disregarding that is there anything else that prevents them from being compatible?
  2. Dear Mac enthusiasts, Finally I could figure out what was wrong with my Mac Portable backlit model and I brought it back to life yesterday afternoon. Not a really big deal, just a broken path, but it was under a chip, so it was quite difficult to find. Anyway, now that it works fine I have a couple questions: -First: when should the screen backlight turn on? I thought it came on at the same time I turn the computer on, but for some reason it doesn't until it loads the first extension. I don't really care, as it works perfectly fine, it's just curiosity.
  3. Question for those of you SE/30 owners who use a PDS video card with an external display. I have a Micron Xceed video card and grayscale setup. Grayscale works great on the internal CRT, but I've never used the DB-15 port also offered by the video card. I have a 15" Color VGA LCD that's about 10 years old. Would this adapter on Amazon be all that I would need? (Not sure how those DIP switches on the adapter are used in case like this though.) Note the horizontal scan rate mentioned in the Xceed manual page below of 31.5kHz, which seems rather odd (maybe common for Apple though?). Any tho
  4. Hello everyone! I recently acquired a CNET technology cn470e PDS card, which I installed some days ago. I wrote another post about it, but unfortunately no-one replied (https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/57586-se30-cnet-network-card/). Probably the post is too dense and full of useless things... . I am trying to surf the internet with the SE/30, but I am completely stuck. I installed OT 1.3 and AppleShare 3.7.4, Netscape 2.02 and iCab 2.99 (freezes at startup). The red LED is on (connection is good) but the greed LED is off (data being transmitted)
  5. Hello everyone! I hope this is the right place to post this, if not so then I'll remove the post. Some weeks ago I acquired on eBay a PDS network card for my SE/30: it's a CNET Technology CN470E card. Just today I found some time to install it, and TattleTech indeed confirmed some stats about this card: Now, as I have never used network cards before, I would like to know if some you could help me in configuring it and try surfing the web/share files/email, etc. There is an older topic on the forum about this card (ht
  6. Out of curiosity, what cards can be safely used in the Quadra 610 PDS slot? There is an elusive NuBus adaptor (Part 661-1718), a PPC upgrade and some class of an AV-card that converts the machine into a 660AV. What else can be used there? Also, what other machines share this slot? I'm assuming the Quadra 660AV. Are there others? Lastly, on a note of confirmation, the NewerTech QuadDoubler (50MHz 68040) for the Quadra 605 works in the Quadra 610. My beloved Performa 475 needs some love and attention. There is no more bong and the fan has stopped working. The PSU boots another
  7. I'm curious if anyone has or has seen a Quadra 605 PDS L2 cache module in real life. I'm not sure how common these things are. If anyone has one or has photos of one, I'm very interested in looking at the cache chips on the module to see what speed they are to determine if the module would function on a 33MHz bus. There's long been suggestion that this module *might* work on a LC 575 board, potentially making for an interesting CC Mystic upgrade: http://colourclassicfaq.com/mobo/mystic.shtml#Q2.1.10 Edit: also, I've read anecdotes about a LC PDS cache module as well as th
  8. I made a new walkthrough video about replacing all the electrolytic capacitors on the MicroMac DiiMO 50MHz 68030 accelerator for the SE/30. I explain my choice of Niobium Oxide capacitors over tantalum, show the replacement, then boot and run benchmarks. The SE/30 shown has a recapped motherboard, recapped analog board, and SEASONIC PSU. The video is 4K but if you're a Mac user who loves Safari, you'll need Chrome to view it in 1440p or 4K. Also, it was sadly during the making of this video that my Epic Blunder occurred. My humble thanks to all of you who are so kindly trying to help me in
  9. Just under 11 years ago I started this thread on AppleFritter about trying to create a PDS extension cable for my SE/30. On Friday I finally got it working. Here is the recipe: 3x 40-wire: 40pc Dupont Wire Jumper Cable 1P-1P 2.54mm female to Female length 20cm readily available on Ebay 4x: 40 Pin 3.5" IDE Drive Gender Changer IDC Cable Adaptor also available on Ebay 1 right angle PDS adaptor I first tried this with this wire kit with one end male and the other female. The problem here was that the pin on the male end would not get enough
  10. Recently got a IIsi and finally cracked it open to find this lovely and strange card, there is no marker of what model it is. I am thinking dual PDS adapter similar to the SuperMac one that shipped with Spigots. Anyone have more info?
  11. Would it be possible to make a PDS slot card to hold a R-Pi or other SBC to act as an ethernet adaptor and video out. Power requirements would be low. Just a thought. Any takers? This is my first post. Hello World! and fellow 68k-ers.
  12. Hi all, There is an SE/30 on sale in a local auction and the PDS card within has this bezel at the back. I'm sure that I've seen one with a switch before but I can't for the life recall what it is. I'm guessing that the 15-pin port is an AUI port. Does it ring a bell with anyone? Thanks very much, aa
  13. Three networking card options are readily available to add ethernet to Color Classic via PDS: Farallon Ethermac LC AsanteLite LC Apple Ethernet Twisted Pair LC What I can't seem figure out is which of the three is best and most reliable, not to mention multi system version compatible. Anyone have any advice? I am going to use it on a LC550 upgraded CC.
