  1. Hello everyone ! I had been looking to connect my SE/30 to the internet but I struggled to find PDS boards that would fit in it, and all SCSI to Ethernet boxes that I found were missing floppies with drivers. Moreover most of this stuff was in the US so shipping would be really expensive. Then I found about scuznet, a modern design by @saybur. It was really interesting because it was made to work with an unpatched Nuvotech driver. But there was a few things I did want to change/improve to the design, including the fact that it would be really cool to be able to upgrade the firmware
  2. hello everybody, I am in this very strange situation: my Quadra 700 came with an hard disk which failed after a few weeks. I wanted to try an 80 pin hd (cheaper, easier to find) with this made-in-china adapter: https://it.aliexpress.com/item/4001112495209.html and I got my hands on a 17GB Seagate Cheetah ST318406LC (the label says it's LVD/SE). Connecting it and turning the Mac on got me chimes of death and sad mac errors 00000F / 0000003 or 000000A, with any possible combination of scsi id (now the HD is on ID 4). I could boot the Quadra with a
  3. A few days ago I got a good deal on a non working M5120 Macintosh Portable. I recapped it and it works fine except for the floppy and the hard drive. I think the floppy drive may have dirty heads or something, because mechanically it seems to work, but can't read or initialize any disc. I had a strange issue with the hard drive. It was stuck at first, but after insisting on it a few times it finally started spinning and I even could recover the data from it. The owner rejected the data, so I went to wipe it. And here began my problems. Initializing it with Apple SC Utility failed,
  4. Every time I try to boot from my LC 520's internal SCSI hard drive bay, it hangs. My external SCSI drive never fails to fully boot, however. I have also swapped the drives and the same thing happens, so I'm led to believe it's the internal hard drive bay itself. All pins are intact, unbent and clean. I have tested both drives on numerous other systems, both 68k and PowerPC, and they work fine every time. Can this be a logic board issue? I've never heard of the internal bay not working while the external does, especially if they're on the same bus. Could it be a capacitor issue? They are long o
  5. Good afternoon (for me), I decided to write this thread apart from the other one about this device because I don't want to divert the attention from the main thread. So to put you in situation, I have a Macintosh Plus with an Apple 20SC HD that originally came with a 20MB MiniScribe drive. I love the sound of that hard drive and I'm looking to get it back. The original drive has mechanical problems and stopped working many years ago, but I thought the logic board was working. This drives are surprisingly expensive nowadays, so I found this one on Ebay and thought t
  6. After finally getting around to looking at my second SE/30 and its SCSI problem I think I need a second opinion: The machine is fully recapped and other than the SCSI issue works perfectly. Symptoms: SCSI disks are seen but any filesystem found on the device gives an error "Invalid name". Initialisation hangs and then times out. I've buzzed out all the SCSI lines and the system data lines and they seem fine. Using an oscilloscope I can see data transfer on every SCSI data line. I'm using a known good SCSI device which works on other systems.
  7. 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
  8. I’m currently testing two identical JackHammer cards (3.2) to see in what condition they are. But I’m not sure if my set up is optimal. I thought an IIfx would be a decent candidate to test them with, but I’m not getting any increased performance (I get approximately 1,15 MB/sec R/W with a Seagate HD 160SC). I have tried different setups in the JackHammer control panel, and both cards behave precisely the same. I have followed all instructions in the manual (I think). However, I suspect some kind of termination issue since I’m getting error messages when testing the SCSI chain in Lido, and Sno
  9. Hello everyone, I thought I'd start a thread on my own SE/30 repair experience both to document what I did for others and to solicit some advice on a few stubborn issues I can't resolve. I picked up a nice-condition SE/30 from Craigslist that was listed as "something's wrong with it". It turned out to be externally in great condition. It is a later unit (manufactured in 91 I believe) with the Astec power supply, original hard drive, and 4 1MB sticks of RAM. When I got it home I powered it on to a muffled, indecipherable sound and classic somasimac screen. There was no hard disk activity
  10. So I am trying to recover files off an old, non functioning Performa 6116. The computer fails to power up. It could be a battery on the motherboard, could be a power supply, or who knows what. On Most old computers that have an IDE, EIDE, ATA or SATA drive I'd just pull out the hard drive, connect it to another computer via an external case, or adapter. Since the 6116 has a SCSI drive and my current computers use SATA I'm struggling with how to do this for a few reasons. 1) Is there an inexpensive SCSI enclosure that has a USB port that I can use? 2) If not an enclosure, Is there an adapte
  11. I have recently have been looking for a boot disk for the Macintosh plus and stumbled across a post of someone using a SCSI IOmega zip drive to download System 7 and boot a Macintosh. is this possible? And can someone explain it to me? and is it easy?
  12. I bought an IIfx yesterday, probably none-working since the ad stated untested. What caught my interest was the Nubus cards, in this case, four of them. So far I have roughly identified three of them, I think, as one Ultra-wide SCSI controller card and two graphics card, but the fourth one was tricky for me. In my haste, I thought it was a Rocket because of the onboard sim slots and lack of output in the back. What could it be? I have yet to receive the parcel. Thanks!
  13. Just this christmas I got a macintosh se/30. I did a recap on it to bring back the sound and to bring back the occasional boot issues with the internal scsi. The internal scsi boots fine now no matter what, but neither my external scsi or external floppy ports boot. The machine starts up and when any external sources is in it gives the flashing floppy. Now I know its not the floppy since Its a emu and it works on my se and my plus. And I know its not my external scsi because It works fine when I use it on my other machines and it works when I put it in the machine. And yes there isn't the slig
  14. hi guys, I’m looking to daisy chain SCSI peripherals to my SE/30, i’ve not done this before and could do with some advise as i notice some of the peripherals require assigning a scsi daisy chain number others don’t, i have the following:- -Zip100 no scsi assignment number -AVID external HHD has assignment number. -Apple 300 CD-ROM has assignment number. -None branded CD-ROM no assignment number. -UMAX Astra 610 Flatbed scanner also has assignment number. i would like to set up the daisy chain to my SE/30 so questions are: 1.) do i have to
  15. Just as the topic asks, has anyone tried using a rounded scsi cable for their SCSI2SD or even just normal internal scsi hdd? I don't love the idea of twisting the flat cable to orientate it correctly in my SE/30. I remember in the past buying roudned IDE cables but I'm having trouble finding SCSI. Any thought or advice?
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. So I recently acquired a powerpc 8100/110 the hard drive soon broke but fortunately I had a 600 megabyte Drive. But of course with this was supposed to be a 2GB Drive and there is very little space to store anything. And I begin to look around and scsi drives are pretty expensive. But like every retro computer nerd I have a stack of IDE drives at my disposal.But of course there's no way to just slap a IDE drive into a SCSI bus. So I began to look at some I need you to SCSI bridge adapters. Now there are plenty and most of them that are listed are made by acard. But almost all of the bridge car
  19. Hello As everyone knows SCSI hard drives are becoming scarce and there are SCSI to memory cards but how about SCSI to IDE. I think this would be a pretty good solution. Has anyone installed one of these on their vintage scsi only macs? The first one I found on using google shows that these are not cheap. Any good source to consider, any where in EU or N.AM would be good.
  20. Folks.... I need some help with the correct name/nomenclature of some SCSI connectors. I am trying to plug a SCSI CD drive into the back of my Color Classic. Photo sphoto1 shows the SCSI cable connectors on the back of a CD drive. The SCSI connectors are small at about 1 and 5/8th of a inch long. Photo sphoto2 shows the SCSI cable coming from the back of my Color Classic. It is quite wide at about 2 and 1/2 inches. Is the SCSI connector in the back of my CC called a "50 pin Centronics"?
  21. I had a few LCII and LCIII back in the day, and I'm sure I tested more than one drive on the internal 50pin SCSI bus, but I can't remember if it worked?
  22. Hello everyone, I hope someone has a good idea for my little problem... I recently acquired a Quadra 630 and, unfortunately, it did not come with a CD-ROM drive, so I purchased one on eBay (AppleCD 300i Plus). The SCSI bridge was broken during shipping and I tried to plug it in just in case it still worked, but the computer did not even see the drive. I noticed that whenever the non-working drive was plugged in the computer, my external ZIP drive wouldn't work (the extension had a red X at boot), but when the CD-ROM was unplugged, it was working. Since the Z
  23. 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.

  25. Hello I have a Quadra 950 with no hard drive. I recently purchased an IBM SCSI drive, model DDRS-39130. Unfortunately the drive is 68pin female. I know that there are adapters out there but I am not sure which to get, there are so many for sale here and there that I am left confused. I love in Poland, EU but if needed, I can get this item shipped to the US. If anyone could help I would be grateful. Kind regards —Alex
