  1. Hi all, My iMac G3's CD-ROM is struggling to eject CDs, I have to grab the partially ejected CD and yank it out before it inserts itself again. I thought about replacing it with another drive, but I've came across this guide, and I'm wondering if it would be any help to me? also, concerning the guide, I'm not sure if it's good idea to microwave a rubber band in water at 115ºC. The water will be boiling and I'm afraid that the rubber band would melt...
  2. Hi all, got my performa up and running a few problems though, the floppy doesn’t seem to line up well with the hole on the front, is it easy to re seat it? and secondly the CD-ROM kind of tried to do something but didn’t actually spin up, i’ve not taken it apart yet but thought it maybe a drive belt issue, anyone else had similar issue? Luckily i have an external scsi CD-ROM for my se/30 so did a fresh os8 install via that but would like to get it working in the performa if i can. any assistance would be greatful neal
  3. Hello guys Maybe someone had similiar problem and know the solution. I have a small external SCSI CD-ROM Drive Panasonic / Matshita KXL-810AN. It can be attached on PCMCIA SCSI-II Card or straight to Macintosh SCSI-Port with an 25pol to 50pol SCSI Cable / Adapter. I try to get it running on my PowerBook 2400c under MacOS 9.2.2 I didn't get any CDs mounted, because there is no driver. I have Pioneer CD-ROM Driver installed, it works with the Pioneer drives only, and not with Panasonic drive. I also modified the standard Apple CD/D
  4. 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?
  5. Now I have my Centris 650 up and running in a totally gorgeous way, I've now hit a new problem that I didn't anticipate. I've spent an hour or so going round in circles courtesy of Google without much joy, hence I am posting again! The short question is "Is it possible to burn CD-R's using OSX (either 10.5.8 on my G4 or 10.11.3 on my i7) that can be read by my CD drive in my Centris?" If someone can give a positive answer, the inevitable follow up is "HOW?" Any advice gratefully received, as I would like to get to the bottom of this one, as I hoped I could use the CD drive in the C
  6. I recently acquired a working, but neglected Quadra 840AV. It came with 3 hard drives installed, an original CD-ROM drive, and with a 64 MB of RAM. It clearly needed a total recap of a motherboard and a good cleanup, which I did. Then I tested the machine, and I found out that a CD-ROM drive wasn't detected, even that it was connected properly. I figured out that it must be the drive that failed. Then I cracked open the Sony CDU561-25 drive, and to my surprise, I found capacitors that have leaked and corroded the PCB. The damage was quite bad, but fixable. There was a group that leaked, a
