    My 5170 is definitely on my home network. That’s how I get files to a computer with a 360K floppy drive the easiest way.

    I think someone here rewrote the 3com 3c509 drivers to work on 8088 too,...

    I don’t want spoilers for when the video comes out. ;)

    Just kidding.

    I wonder if one of those cassette adapters people used to use in their cars when portable CD players came out would work in...

    I wasn’t suggesting that they are $6 each. I just located the first 34 pin connectors on amazon and the kit was $6.

    Were you using a USB to IDE adapter with your modern computer? Those don’t like really old IDE drives. If you’ve got a connector on the motherboard that might have a better chance of working. But I...

    You could also get a crimper and some 34 pin IDC connectors and add one to your existing cable. Probably not the cheapest route, at about $18 US for the crimper set with some connectors that are too...

    Does your TVGA 9000i have the 8/16 bit jumpers at J8 and J9 or at J1 and J3?

    If you don't have enough RAM, you could be thrashing the drive just for swapfile.
  9. Sticky: board with 4 knobs 0 through 9.

    What's this? I'm not sure it's computer related.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I was talking about the jumpers on the drive, but if you've disconnected it, that's probably not the main issue. What cards are installed in the system? If I have a system that just suddenly...

    What drive is is and what exactly are the jumpers set for? Some drives have different settings for single drive than the do for master. If you go into the BIOS setup, do you see the new drive, at...

    Page 422 here says that it isn't required for the to be a load. It does talk about a power-good signal required to turn the light on.

    When I checked the back side, it looks like the only pins on the ISA connector are gnd.

    If I did it right, it looks like the top end goes to pin 10 on the ram chips, which the data sheet says is VCC. The other end seems to be goin all over the place. Many address lines and data lines on...
  17. Can you help identify this bad resistor on an STB Evolution ISA VGA card?

    Any idea what value this resistor is? It looks burned right where I'd expect a colored band to be. Also, how likely is it that this failed resistor would make the card be dead?

    I’ve tried controllers from seagate and dtc in my XT in addition to the original xebec. While I didn’t try every possible combination, at no point was I able to swap controllers without low level...

    I've got a couple of "N" USB adapters from belkin that seem to work pretty well. I don't think the ones I have work on both frequencies, just the 2.4, I think. Another thing I use, for my old...

    Every NT 4 cd I’ve had is bootable. The hack with the 2000 boot image is because the NT 4.0 cd doesn’t have the message “press any key to boot from CD” and instead it will boot directly to setup...

    It probably doesn't support LBA translation. Using a newer drive might actually work better, but it's hit or miss. I tried a few IDE drives on my IBM 5170 before I found a drive that was happy to...

    Did you update your address? I just bought like half a dozen things from them, they have St412 style MFM cables too, and I think shipping was like $7.45, which I'm guessing is a flat rate box.

    Yeah, a better idea might be to build your own adapter with name brand plugs and receptacles from the hardware store, at least that way you know if you got good components or not. I've not had any...
