  1. I have an IBM-made 120MB 2.5" HDD that causes the boot sequence of any PB it's in to hang; good chime, grey screen and movable pointer, but doesn't progress further, and no floppy question icon appears. Other bad drives would cause the system to ask for a floppy, but not this one... The PB's I've tried it in all behave the same, though they all work as expected with known-good HDD's (boot fine) or without (floppy icon). It's just this one drive that seems to cause this issue. The drive sounds fine when booting, I've disassembled it and it doesn't have the usual rubber bumpers, dela
  2. Hello everyone! I have a SE/30 that boots from the internal HDD only if a ZIP drive is connected. I initially thought it may have something to do with bad traces on the motherboard (and still haven't checked since it is not my area of expertise), but then I remembered: the HDD is a Seagate 8GB drive taken from an external Lacie enclosure. Is it possible that I have to terminate it with the switches present on the HDD? I found the manual for the drive but I am unsure on how to proceed. Maybe it has nothing to do with this, but the jumper plug on J2 is set to "term power from
  3. Hi 69kmla community! Having some trouble figuring out how to format and initialise an external SCSI HDD (GCC Technologies UltraDrive 45) with Apple HD SC setup 2.0.3 on a Macintosh Plus from 1986 with 4MB of RAM. I read elsewhere that i need HD SC setup version 3.0 to recognise non-Apple SCSI external HDD to boot on it the system. And that 3.0 version work with System 7.0. I have System 6.0.8 on a DD Floppy Disk. The external 45MB HDD use 50pins connector with a passive SCSI terminator. The lights blinks when Mac Plus boot up and trying t
  4. This is a cautionary tale on what not to do with your Macintosh SE. Ever since I replaced the HDD in my SE, I always felt the new drive wasn't secure enough. There are six screw points on the 40 MB Conner HD SC drive and only four screw points on the SE's HDD bay. Only two of the Conner's screw points (one on the left side of the drive and one on the right) lined up with the SE's screw points. This means that the HDD was only held in place by two screws. It was okay, but it could've been more secure. Sometimes when running the SE, I would hear a "klinking" sound, which I assum
  5. Anyone happen to have a service manual for the M2115 external SCSI HDD? I have two of them I've reassembled from pieces and can't seem to get them to work. The problem is that I can't seem to figure out where the scsi ID switch connects. I think it should connect to the drive itself, but can't see where. Any help would be appreciated.
  6. I have revived yet another SE30. The HDD, however (Quantum Prodrive 80S) is throwing errors. I thought that a Lido format would find and reallocate bad blocks, but it does not seem to be doing that. So I tried the "Overnight Test" in the Lido software, hoping to do just that. However, it seems to be giving up after 100 errors have been found. Would anyone have a suggestion ? I could replace the HDD of course, but would prefer of course to keep the original, even if that means reducing the capacity a bit. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi guys, I'm new to macs in general so please takee it easy on me... :b&w: I just recently got an iBook G4 and want to replace the HDD with an SSD. Two issues that people have mentioned but seem to have no hard information about: 1 - The pin set-up of the original HDD. Some people have told me it's not a normal sized IDE. It's smaller. I can't really tell from the pictures on the internet so I'm hoping someone has done this before and can tell me definitively 2- Sata 3 to PATA. The SSD I want to use is a normal 2.5" SATA 3 HDD. Once again, "people online" have said
  8. Hi, I recently acquired as part of a bundle of macs, a CMS external HDD case, just like this one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CMS-Stack-3-Vintage-Hard-Drive-External-SCSI-For-Apple-Macintosh-Series-/151552664251 It had a Aztecmonster CF adapter and 1GB card in it but I can't get the Mac to see the device. Am thinking the dip switches on the rear of the case (which seem to impact the DB25 wiring inside the case (ID select etc?)) is the issue. (Powers up fine, Aztecmonster pwr led is on, the LED for the HDD even flickers on initially on power up) just can't be seen by lido7 or fwb etc s
