A member of the list sent me older software which helped quite a bit. The Global Village card now works, the ethernet card says its unrecognizable and the smartmedia adapter says its defective (all tested in my 1400 and work). The only thing odd is they still do not show up on the desktop, everything is mentioned in the PCMCIA control strip. Is this normal or is something still not working correct? Any idea's or suggestions?

You can also "dismount" each by dragging these to the trash. Earlier MacOSes would work with the installation of the PC Card Software you mentioned, perhaps extracted from the install disk using Tome Viewer. Based upon the universal rejection (i.e., non-recognition) of all the PC cards you mentioned, the two possibilities are: 1) the PC Card Software is incorrectly installed, and/or 2) the card cage is defective. The Rev. B card cage is really a Rev. A with a number of trace cuts and discrete wire adds, plus a few additional discrete components. IOW, a desperate attempt to save a fatally-flawed design. The Rev. C is a complete redesign, including a completely new LSI chip and a quite different component layout. -- PowerBooks is sponsored by <http://lowendmac.com/> and...
