Re: Wireless stopped working

2018-10-31 Thread Len Gerstel
Many newer wireless routers, particularly budget priced, don’t support the 
older wireless standards like 802.11b that the Airport is. I would check your 
router’s supported standards first.

List purge

2017-12-27 Thread Len Gerstel
Folks,

Just a reminder.

The recent email about purging the list was only about purging email addresses 
that were bouncing back as undeliverable.

So, if you are getting the emails, you are fine. You will not be removed. 

If you have not been getting the emails (and if you haven’t, how are you 
reading this?) and they have been bounced back by your provider as 
undeliverable, then, AND ONLY THEN, will your email address be purged.

Re: Freezing HDD

2017-03-11 Thread Len Gerstel
It does work OCCASIONALLY for a limited subset of problems. Note that it is a 
last ditch effort. Before you start, have everything you need to back up the 
hard drive should it work and back it up immediately.

Also, there is always the possibility of a circuit board failure on the drive 
and I have known people to buy a working HD off ebay of the same model and swap 
the board. 

Both of these assume a hardware failure, not software.

Yes, which version of mail? I am using 2.1.3 under 10.4 and there is

The 640 x 293 is pretty close to the medium. so it may be sizing

Re: Mail corruption issue Cause:Corrupted Envelope Index

2013-08-21 Thread Len Gerstel

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

I ruled out real ram problems since it was only mail that crashed,  
and when I re-initialized it everything was fine.


It appears that the problem was a corrupted Envelope Index file.

I copied my old ~users/me/library/mail folder back, and returned the  
old mail.plist. Deleted the Envelope Index file. It rebuilt the file  
on relaunch and it appears that everything is back and working fine.


Thanks again for the help, and this trick goes into my pile of early  
step, non destructive, repairs.

Mail corruption issue

2013-08-19 Thread Len Gerstel
I am using Mail 2.1.3 on 10.4.11 installed on a G5. Something became  
corrupted and Mail would crash moments after opening. I could not  
even try and run Rebuild Mailboxes.


I tried everything I could think of. Ran disk utility, ran everything  
in OnyX, booted in Safe Mode, removed Plist. Heck, I got so desperate  
I even repaired permissions. Nothing helped.


Having to get Mail up and running, I copied my existing mail folder  
from Users/me/Library/mail to another disk and started Mail fresh. I  
tried importing the mail from the previous folder and it would crash  
upon opening after import.


The main error message I see in crash log is:

Exception:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
Codes:  KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0x8a7ad83d

Which googling implies bad ram. No new ram installed in months, no  
other apps crashing.


What I am looking to do is get my old mail back and into Mail. I have  
tried dragging individual messages ( 1070409.emlx ) onto Mail, but  
that doesn't work. I can double lick an .emlx and it opens in mail,  
but I can't search them and I have thousands of messages I am trying  
to recover, so opening each, then forwarding it to me is not a real  
option.


Thanks for any help,

Those cheap adapter do not have any provision for termination, so it

to provide termination.  I agree with everything else you wrote.



Sorry, all the cheap ones I purchased did have a place for a jumper  
for termination. And I did use multiple SCA drives in my beige G3  
tower, 9600 and 9500.



Also, when using  a SCA to 50 pin adapter, the upper 8 bits (18 unused
wires) of the wide SCA drive will not be terminated, and while it is
rare, this can cause issues too.


YMMV


SCSI voodoo doesn't happen because it fails to work when people
configure SCSI properly.  SCSI voodoo happens because SCSI often still
works even when it is misconfigured, and then when it stops working,
folks act puzzled and call it voodoo.


Respectfully disagree. Back in the day there were many people with  
scsi issues on this list that were only using 50 pin narrow and their  
scsi chain would only work if the devices were on it in a certain  
order, whether or not they were powered up, and various other problems.

 Greetings all,
 I need some help remembering - a trip down memory lane.
 I find myself in an unplanned need to access six IBM SCSI-Ultra 320
 drives (with SCA interface, so I know an adapter from 68-pin cable to
 SCA is most likely involved). I seem to recall that I had such a card
 from either Adaptec or ATTO (or Initio) that addressed such a
 situation and I ran it off of a beige G3 tower.
 Does any of that bring up like memories for you? What I needed help in
 is remembering what cards worked with Macs; regarding legacy, I can go
 as far back as a beige G3 (desktop) running OS 9, or a Quicksilver
 running OS X (10.4, or earlier, I have 10.1, 10.2, 10.3).
 Any remembrances appreciated. Any stores you may know of that would
 sell adapters would be great as well.
 Many thanks for any thoughts,
 Regards,

1) SCSI under X is more Voodoo than it EVER was in 9, so go with the Beige. The 
slight speed hit of the slower pci slots is MORE than made up for with hair you 
will keep, and the time for all of your posts here asking for SCSI help.

2) Adaptec cards are my recommendation, if you need a card. Trouble is, if you 
search by card number (2940 etc) many cards that were not cross platform had 
the same model number. ie: There were 2940s for PCs and different firmware 
2940s for Macs. So be careful. 

3) There are many SCA to 68 and 50 pin adapters available. These go directly on 
the back of the drive then you use a standard 50 or 68 pin cable. Unless you 
are doing data intensive work, just go with the cheapest setup.

AAAGGGHH Durn failing memory...

Beiges have onboard 50 pin SCSI. Just get one of the SCA to 50 pin adapters and 
plug into the fully supported onboard scsi on the beige. These adapters are 
available on ebay for under $5 shipped. I am sure you can easily beat this on

I ran many sca drives in my beiges with those adapters with never any problems. 

As to stores, depends what is nearby to you. I only have access to MicroCenters 
and some small shops near me, but they are expensive $39.99(low turnover, low 
demand item). But the swap list should be able to get you one in a couple of 
days. Heck, someone could overnight one to you for less than MicroCenter's 
price.

does a Good Thing!!  But nooo?  They're denying it while doing  
it?  Why would they do that?  What has happened to their corporate  
culture that would cause this to happen?  I just don't get it.


The general consensus around the net is that since Adobe was shutting  
down the activation servers for CS2, this was SUPPOSED to be given  
out only to current CS2 customers so they could still use their  
software.


Once this was out in the wild, Adobe is (theoretically) smart enough  
to know that there are no take backs on the net. My thought is that  
while they might not admit the mistake, they are going to leave it up  
and hope for the drug dealer model. The first one is free...

Well, just went to:


http://www.adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html


To see what else was on the page, and it redirects to the main  
Creative Suite page, touting CS6.


Maybe they ARE doing a silent take back. If you are smart or devious  
enough to find the released version of CS 2 on the net, you probably  
can find a newer version also. If you aren't, no harm, no foul, you  
can still buy the current version.

 According to Forbes and other sources:
 
 Adobe has shut down the activation servers, but they're NOT giving anything 
 away for free.  The packages provided for download now require a registration 
 key, instead of reaching for the server.  Said key is ONLY available to 
 *existing* CS2 customers.


Well, they are not checking too well. The download page lists serial numbers 
for each of the apps.

Ten Four Fox Caution, still checking

Just a possible word of caution. I just downloaded the latest  
TenFourFox, 17.0, and it hangs on opening, even before a window opens.


Redownloading now, and will update after a redownload.

Running 10.4.11 on a G5 and have had no problems with previous versions.

Of course, having no problems with previous versions, I overwrote the

You may be able to swap those keys in the Keyboard control panel,

As Bruce said, any usb keyboard should work. Any keys above the

help with browsing (forward, back, home, reload) don't work with  
TenFourFox or Safari 4.1.3


So pick one for the action you like. I recommend getting one with a  
built in usb hub, they are incredibly handy.


In 10.4 you can remap the modifier keys with the keyboard Control  
Panel, don't know about earlier. But to be honest, after about a week  
the muscle memory gets used to the different key locations and it is  
not an issue after that.

I started
updating the installations soon after. 10.2 is now the most recent

all security updates supplied by Software Update, but I had to use my

I checked the last three or four days for updates on Mac OS X 10.2  
and today
with 10.3 and noticed that the servers from Apple were unreachable  
from within
Apple’s own Software Update application (http://support.apple.com/

I then checked to see if updates from the support page
(http://support.apple.com/downloads/) can be downloaded normally,  
which they

can. So there is still a (hard) way to update a Mac OS X pre-10.4.

I also noticed that Mac OS X prior to 10.5 has been removed from  
Apples

internet website (http://www.apple.com/support/mac/).

I will now also continue to update my 10.3 using the priviously  
downloaded

.dmg installation images I collected and preserved for such cases.


Anyone else having problem with Software Update?

Assuming you are smart enough not to put your fingers in a spinning fan blade

It is only the power supply fan shroud that reduces the height. If you cut that

If that's what is going on it's a bug in IOS, or something odd that  
Verizon is doing. My iPad is running the same version of IOS as he  
is, and this is being set by the  email libs in IOS, so if it was  
something with the app, it should have happened to mine as well.


Best to teach him how to send more than one photo at a time:

Go to the Photos app, select either an album, your photo stream or  
the camera roll, and WITHOUT selecting a picture,  click the 'out  
of box arrow' (damned if I know what the official name for it  
is...) tap on the photos you want to send, then tap share. Much  
easier than sending multiple emails!


Thanks for the iphone tip, I'll try it tonight. You know how it is,  
the big cheese gets all the cool toys, and those of us down in the  
trenches have to support them  without the budget to have one to know

Mail 2.1.3 vs iPhone 4s problem

2012-05-16 Thread Len Gerstel

Relevant Hardware/software:

PowerMac G5 running 10.4.11 with Mail 2.1.3
iPhone 4s with latest updates.

My brother got an iPhone 4s for business. Most of the reason he went  
with it is the camera. I am working on getting him to be able to  
batch send the pics, but for now he sends them as individual picture  
messages to my email. I then select all the emails, click forward to  
make them one email with 10 photos and forward that to the  
appropriate people.


With his old, semi dumb phone, everything worked fine. Each photo was  
in the forwarded email at the proper size. With the iPhone, the first  
picture of the group that I select to forward is fine. The rest of  
the pictures are not in the email. Instead there is the proper size  
one of the first picture, then there are small thumbnails of the  
first picture equal in number to the number of pictures that were  
supposed to be forwarded.


I have checked and all the photos coming from the iPhone do have  
separate names. But in the forwarded email it shows one large of the  
first photo, then the thumbnails of the same photo and they all have  
the same the same (ie: a large picture of img_2496 then 9 thumbnail  
size pics of the same image, all also names img_2496)


Anyone seen this before or have any thoughts?

Thanks,
Len Gerstel

I don't mind constructive criticism, but the real Firefox doesn't  
have any
of these either (except WebGL, which Mozilla does not support on  
10.4 or
10.5), and neither do many other browsers. If people are going to  
evaluate
features, comparing them against a realistic benchmark is always  
ideal.


Cameron,

Please understand that the above was not meant as a criticism. It was  
simply a report on the test results for TenFourFox that Bruce  
wondered about. I did not even look at the test page results for  
other browsers,


Looking at the test results, TenFourFox holds its' own very well,  
even beating Safari 5.1 by a little and trouncing IE 9, which only  
scored 138. It even scores better than the beta of IE 10.

Mail error log

2012-05-03 Thread Len Gerstel

Running Mail 2.1.3 on a G5 with 10.4.11. Connecting to a POP server

I am having connection issues to my mail server, hosted by a small  
firm. I frequently get the connection issue (I am pretty sure that is  
it) icon when checking mail. The icon that is an exclamation point in  
a triangle inside a circle. It normally goes away the next time Mail  
autochecks for new mail, but right now it has been in this state for  
45 minutes.


I am looking for the error log that might give a hard reason for this  
(can't find server, too many connections-connection denied, whatever)  
to pass on to the hosting company, since I am probably the most tech  
literate customer.


The only Mail logs I can find are in /var/log/mail.log (and mail.log. 
0.gz through mail.log.4.gz). None of these have any entries for  
today, and the issue is going on right now.

You need to use a hack to get Quartz Extreme running on pci video

I used it on 10.2, but never needed it on any OS higher so I don't

Yes, they just work. At least as tested through 8.x, 9.x and 10.2

What I am trying to do is export the email addresses only from one

inbox for my business account.

I have 14,000 email messages in my business email in box, with  
probably 1500 unique addresses. I can dedupe the addresses, but I  
have to get them out first.

Re: 68 pin vs. 50 pin SCSI HD?

68 pin is wide scsi. 16 bit data path vs the 50 pin's 8 bit. Drives might be 
slightly newer, but check the individual drives.

You may also want to look onto 80 pin SCA scsi. These are server drives and the 
sca adapters are also easy to get.. Generally more robust than the 50 and 68 
pin drives. Also hotter, larger capacity , noisier and faster than most 68 and 
50. 

Depending upon how much storage you need, the 73Gb SCA drives seem to be the 
sweet spot. 10k rpm drives are starting at  $20 shipped. You can ignore the 
tray that is included with many. That is what they used to install them in the 
server. Just remove the 4 screws and mount it in your Mac.

The one thing to be careful of is formatting. Many SCSI drives are not included 
in Apple's Drive SetUp program. There are hacks to get it to recognize 
non-supported drives. Or a 3rd party drive utility like LaCies will format 
most any SCSI drive.

My new G5 (dual 2.0, early 2005, pci model) has a Radeon 9650 card.

Does the Radeon 9650 support 2 displays? Not mirrored, but regular

I have a G5 2.7 DP, Early 2005, with its Radeon 9650 card (dual DVI  
output).

I confirm it drives two monitors beautifully. :-)

Why making a card with two display ports...
and not driving two monitors...? ;-)

I read ADC adapters could be espensive (in the past), though.


DOH!!. It helps if I actually look at the card as installed. 2 DVI  
ports. My mind was clouded with the view of the FX5200 in the other  
G5 I picked up for my coworker (dual 1.8 pci-x) that had a DVI and ADC.


I know that many older cards had 2 connectors that were for either/or  
but not both at 1 time. The Radeon 7000s were like that. DVI and VGA  
(and S-video), but IIRC, could only drive one monitor at a time.


Thanks all,
Len

ps, Just finished cloning a Sawtooth to the Dual 1.8 and it booted  
fine with no issues.

Can I CCC a 10.4 from a G4 DA to a G5?

2011-11-04 Thread Len Gerstel
Everything I have read is that 10.X installs are monolithic. ie: they  
include everything needed for any machine that will run the OS.


I know G5s can run 10.5, but we still have classic apps that we run  
and I have not been able to get SheepShaver working. Remote  
desktopping into a G4 will be a later project.


It is a Dual 2.0 G5. I believe it is the 2004 dual 2.0 with pci-x  
slots. (at the price and speed bump from a DA dual 533 and a Sawtooth  
400, I am not being picky on which dual 2.0). My plan is to install  
the HD for the G5 into my DA (with a SATA card) and just clone my DA  
HD onto it. Yes, I know a fresh install is best, but I don't have the  
time or organization to do that here.


Any flaws?

Thanks,
Len

I had the same situation (OSX 10.4.11 from G4 DA to G5 2.7) some

That is what I figured. I just wanted to make sure before I started

Only thing, if you have some app optimized for G4 processors (like
TenFourFox), you better swap it with the G5 version.


But at least I won't have to remember do I have a 7400 or 7410?


IMO, the fastest and simplest way to do this cloning, is thru Firewire
Target disk mode: just connect the two Macs with a Firewire cable,  
boot the

receiving (target) Mac holding down the T key, and do your cloning.
No need to move HDs around. :-)


Tough call. I like mucking around and straight to SATA will be faster  
than Firewire 400. I could show off how cool the 10 year old Target  
Disk Mode feature is, but the coolness will be lost on the people  
that will be around to see it.

Do you mean  a DVD? Or do you mean just copying the video file

I guess if I explain exactly what we're doing here with the  
creation of a disk image it may help. We need to quickly make disk  
images of some 8GB SDHC camera cards to be able to keep 8 cameras  
running continuously shooting training videos for a large retailer  
to be used as origination DVD's for their employees.


These images are then mounted on the desk top to be used in FCE to  
compile the finished DVD.. We get 30 mins of shooting on a card,  a  
G4 1.25 Mac with a USB 2.0 port and a 2.0 SD card reader it takes  
45 mins using Disk Utility or Toast 8 to make the image so that  
we can then put that card back in service at that point. So we have  
a camera down for more than 15 mins. In contrast a TiBook 1 GHz  
with a 2.0 USB card using a SD card reader takes 1:45 mins to make  
the same image. An iMac i5 Quad does the job in 14 mins but we need  
to use a laptop on site due to the lugging factor.


I need a way to make the image faster, 8GB's even 14 mins seems  
excessive?? I have a MacBook Pro that I just got a CalDigit Express  
34 USB 3.0 card for that I haven't had a chance to test yet. I also  
bought a LEXAR 3.0 SD card reader. I need to know if I'm on the  
right track or spinning my wheels.


Do you need the Disk images immediately? Or are you just trying to  
get the info off the cards to put the cards back into use?


Making a disk image does involve the processor and the rest of the  
system (from the ti book vs iMac speeds).


How about just doing a straight copy of the SDHC card into a folder,  
then making the image or importing the video later into FCP?


If this is for a large retailer, wouldn't the budget allow for a few  
more cards? Dealnews is showing class 10 cards at $10 for 8GB, $18  
for 16GB and $32 for 32GB cards.

 and I was wondering what you all might think of it?  I know my G4 has passive 
 cooling anyway, and changing the case and power supply would be the biggest 
 thing, but the easiest as soon as I find one that will fit.  I'm really 
 wondering what are the thermal limits of them?  How well do you think it will 
 fair?

Issues are HD and space. A spinning HD probably won't last long in a mobile 
environment and a G4 tower takes a lot of space.

However, when the mini came out, there were numerous mods to get them into the 
DIN spot of the radio. Replace the HD with an SSD and (the hard part) get a 
small touch screen you have a full multimedia system and general purpose 
computer in your dash. 

Then again, a iPod touch will do the same thing and you can velcro it to the 
dash.

The command shift 4 will work fine but as soon as I move the mouse  
the control panel reappears in the picture. I need to get the  
picture without the panel in it.




Then there is the 2 step. command shift 3 takes the whole screen

Or, open the movie in VLC or Mplayer and screen shot it from there.

If the former, in Firefox go to Tools-Downloads then right click on

If the latter, there is no program, it is (I think) a plug in deep in

After you run the installer, go to:

Friends,

I have two production machines here at Low End Mac headquarters - a
dual 1 GHz Mirror Drive Door with 2 GB of RAM and a Rage 128 Pro video
card running Tiger and a Digital Audio upgraded with 1.25 GB of RAM, a
dual 1.6 GHz CPU, and Radeon 9000 Pro graphics (swapped from the MDD)
running Leopard.

My thinking: Although the MDD has more RAM, the faster CPU and better
video card make the Digital Audio the better choice for Leopard. I
don't do anything that really taxes the graphics (no gaming), but I
recently picked up a 22 Apple Cinema Display for a song. It's an ADC
monitor, so I'm limited to Apple AGP video cards with ADC support.

I'm looking for suggestions for a better video card that's also very
affordable. This would also let me swap the Radeon 9000 back to the
MDD.


I have been running 9600's in my DAs. One with 64mb and 1 with 128mb

if you have a lot of windows open or icons on the desktop, the speed

On Aug 6, 2010, at 10:12 AM, Geke wrote:


I just got a Gigabit with a Sonnet Encore ST/G4 1GHz processor upgrade
inside.
Now I want to swap that Sonnet with the 466MHz cpu in my Digital
Audio, but before I do that, I wanted to check two things here:

1. How tricky is it to put the DA's CPU into the Gigabit? The CPU is
the same, but I read that the location of the CPU card on machines
previous to the digital audio would require some modifications to the
motherboard/case.
(The other way I can manage; I have the Sonnet instructions for
putting in the Encore.)


2 Main considerations.

1) I think with the DA Card (I know with a QS card) you have to  
remove one of the 2 IDE connectors on the motherboard to get it to  
fit. We are talking board level soldering.


2) The DA has a 133MHz bus speed and the gigabit has a 100MHz. The  
466 has a 3.5 x multiplier so if you do the work above you will

only have a 350MHz machine.


2. What do I gain by this swap? I mean, the DA is a bit newer and
faster, but is it worth it, or should I just switch to the Gigabit?


Between the faster bus speed and 4 x AGP, yes, switch.

- I have already tried the DA's video card in the Gigabit and it works
OK; does it make a big difference that the DA is AGPx4 and the Gigabit
AGPx2?


If the card can take advantage of it, yes it does.

- The RAM in both computers is PC-133


Good, it is swappable


- Does the slower ATA bus speed of the Gigabit make a big difference
in actual practice?


AFAIK, the ATA drive interfaces are the same. There is a faster  
motherboard bus speed on the DAs (133 vs 100) and that DOES make a  
difference.

Hi!

Where do you look it up on the web?


System Profiler should give you something like PowerMac3,1 or  
PowerMac3,3 or

so.
If your G4 has an AGP graphics card, but no ADC power connector on  
the system
board and maybe the graphics card doesn't feature an ADC connector  
(bear in
mind that an AGP graphcis card with ADC connector will most likely  
work
anyhow, only the monitor doesn't get the additional power), then it  
cannot be

a Gigabit Ethernet. It is propably an AGP Graphics



The M5183 is actually a Digital Audio. That is what mine is marked  
and it was a 533MHz model.


466MHz was the entry level. The higher models came with an nVidia  
GeForce 2 or 3, and they could be ordered on the lower end machines,  
or be an aftermarket add on card. No ADC implies that it is an  
aftermarket card.

Nanny note Re: plain text please

2010-07-18 Thread Len Gerstel
Folks, per the official Low End Mac Email List FAQs:

http://www.lowendmac.com/lists/netiquette.shtml

 Don't send styled text or HTML files; only send plain text. Styled text may 
 or may not come through as an attachment, but it is very difficult to read 
 with a plain text email client. Google Groups will accept styled text and 
 attachments, and this can result in garbled digests.

On a similar vein:

 Never send attachments to the list. An attachment may contain a virus, may be 
 in a format others cannot use, may not make it through some mail gateways, 
 makes the message bigger, and could bog down both the list server and the 
 mail server.
 
   • Many of today's email programs send styled text attachments by 
 default. Please turn HTML and other styled text off when posting to our lists 
 (see #3). (Note that PGP.sig files and v-cards are attachments.)
   • Instead of sending an attachment to the list, offer to email it 
 directly to those who request it.
   • Low End Mac lists used to be explicitly set to reject any and all 
 attachments. We can't do that with Google Groups.

So please abide by these rules. Not following them may result in your being 
placed on moderated status or your messages not getting through.

Greetings G-Group

I know that this might be the incorrect place to post this question
but I'm hopping that someone can point me to the correct location.

I have some music that is in MP3 and MP4 format however my family room
CD/DVD player is a Toshiba SD-6109C.
Yeah it's at least 25 years old and it doesn't recognize CD's that are
encoded MP3 or MP4 so I'd like to convert the songs to what ever
format that was used a long time ago. Or even the format that is
currently in use for the Music industry. As the Toshiba will play CD's
that we purchase today, so my question is:

What format does the music industry use and what application can I
use to convert the songs that I have.

Of course I'd like to find an application the is free.


iTunes. From iTunes Help:


To create an audio CD:

Select the playlist containing the songs you want to burn to the  
CD; make sure the songs you want to include have a checkmark beside  
them.
Insert a blank disk and click Burn Disc (at the bottom of the  
iTunes window).

Select Audio CD as the Disc Format.
Choose your options:
When you burn a CD, iTunes automatically adjusts the recording  
speed to the blank CD’s rating. However, if your blank CD is rated  
for a slower speed than the maximum speed of your drive, or if you  
experience problems creating CDs, you may want to change the CD  
recording speed to match the CD’s rating by choosing an option from  
the Preferred Speed pop-up menu.
To change the length of the silence between songs, choose an option  
from the Gap Between Songs pop-up menu.
To have all the songs on the CD play at the same volume, select Use  
Sound Check.
CD players in some vehicles can display information stored on CDs;  
select Include CD Text to use this option.

Click Burn.



This will make a music CD that will play in any CD player that will  
play burned CDs.

If the Burned as Music CDs  (a bit over an hour of music fits on one)  
play in your Saturn, but not on your player, it is a problem with the  
player or media. Some old players do not like recordable CDs. While  
they may have been in the original spec for CDs, many players could  
not handle them.


Since you know you can burn a music CD that works, there are 2  
possibilities:


1) A different brand of blank CDs MAY work, but don't buy 100 at a time.

2) Most likely, you will need to replace your CD player with  
something newer.

This sounds like you're burning music onto DVD discs rather than CD  
discs? You can't play any DVD discs in any music CD player. The  
term -R (pronounced minus R) is a DVD term, so if you're using  
-R DVDs, get some regular CDs, also called CDR (pronounced C-D- 
R see-dee-are, for Compact Disc Recordable). As Bruce said, some  
older music players have trouble with any CDR discs (meaning home  
recorded CDRs, as opposed to OEM retail manufactured CDs).


There was a format war here also. There were CD+R and CD-R. Most  
disks nowadays are -R.


You may be able to find a small pack of +R and try that, But I think  
you will wind up burning through more money trying various brands  
hoping to find one that works than a new CD player would be.

No Blu-ray.
Adding Blu-ray to the mini would be pointless, as there is no

Wouldn't that be a good way to introduce it? Since the mini now has  
an hdmi port it would make sense to introduce it.
There was a comment on slashdot about this. Basically it says Apple  
looks ahead a few years and they think blu-ray is dead end, streaming  
is the way to go in the future.


Can't tell - is there a wi-fi antenna port?   If not, how does the

Maybe through the Apple logo on top?


or the bottom?

I highly doubt Apple would've moved it inside if it caused heat

Naw, Apple has never designed a computer with physical issues before.

Why couldn't they have used all that extra space to provide better

four USB ports.  IF they had all that space available,,, why

That is stupid. I hated fumbling around on the back of my mini to

Agreed on both the current and previous.

Overall, for me the only drawback on the refurb 2.26MHz I just got

Of course not.

But who, in reality, really cares about form factor.



A famous quote

No wireless. Less space than a Nomad. Lame.

This is referring to the Nomad MP3 player compared to the first iPod.  
You see how many Nomads are out there today. Pure specs killed that  
Apple attempt at an MP3 player called the iPod.


Form factor and user interface do matter to a lot of people. The  
noise and heat generated by my DA with Dual processors (both Apple  
dual 533s and OWC 1.2s is significantly higher than the mini with an  
external dual HD enclosure. Since my computer room is right next to  
the kids bedrooms and I use it mostly at night when they are asleep,  
the form factor (and resultant noise) played a part in my decision to  
get the mini.


A generic Dell box built by the lowest bidder will have better specs,  
but how much is Dell spending on OS development? Remember, Apple is a  
software company. The hardware is just the (officially) only way to  
run the software.



One usually cares about price/performance.



That is why there is everything from the Minis to the dual quad core  
pros. And most of the comparisons I have seen over the last couple of  
years place most Macs not too far off of equivalent quality name  
brand windows boxes. Sometimes cheaper, sometimes more, but almost  
always within a reasonable amount.


Ask Bruce how many boxes of band aids he has used over the years  
working on various low cost (but brand name) windows boxes compared  
to Macs.

http://developer.apple.com/legacy/mac/library/qa/qa2001/qa1099.html

Note about RAM module sizes.
Sizes are in hex:
1000 = 256mb
2000 = 512mb
4000 = 1gb
... and so forth.


i had never heard of PC133 sticks larger than 512MB, and THAT would be
the insurmountable roadblock to shoe-horning  4GB of RAM into a
sawtooth, 'cuz there's still only four RAM slots.  BUT, searching the
Dell site, i find that there was indeed a PowerEdge 2500 server, and
it did in fact use 1GB PC133 memory sticks!!!

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe2500sc/en/ug/
127kwc10.htm#1032099.

. . . upgradable to a maximum of 4 GB by installing combinations of
64-, 128-, 256-, 512-MB, or 1-GB registered PC-133 SDRAM memory module
pairs in the six memory module sockets on the system board.

this is big news to me, because as Kris points out in the link above,
it is possible to modify the NVRAM to allow the computer to address
4GB of memory.  now the real relevant question becomes, how and where
to get a hold of some of these 1GB PC133 sticks without trolling
dumpsters for old Dell servers?


Easily and cheaply found on eBay. I just sold 8 1GB sticks for $30  
shipped.


Problem is that registered sticks are keyed differently than regular  
SD ram stick and will not fit in the slot. Even if you physically  
modify the slot, the contacts will not line up. So they can not work  
in a Mac.

hmm  i never think of ebay anymore, because i've been burned once
too many times, but . . .

1GB PC133 SDRAM APPLE or DESKTOPs Non ECC UnBuff 168Pin

http://cgi.ebay.com/1GB-PC133-SDRAM-APPLE-DESKTOPs-Non-ECC- 
UnBuff-168Pin-/370394025373? 
cmd=ViewItempt=LH_DefaultDomain_0hash=item563d344d9d#ht_2411wt_737


Well, they offer a full refund if for any reason you are unhappy.

From the item description:

THIS WILL WORK IN ANY  ALL DESKTOP COMPUTER THAT CAN USE 1GB PER  
SLOT.

ASK ME IF YOU'RE UNSURE


Present discussion excepted, no one I know has ever gotten a 1GB  
stick to work in a Mac with PC133 ram.


They also say:


SPECS AT A GLANCE:
PC133 SDRAM / 168 Pin / Non ECC - UnBuffered / LOW DENSITY
GUARANTEED TO WORK IN ANY AND ALL PC133  PC100 DESKTOP COMPUTER  
THAT CAN USE 512MB PER SLOT.



Why are they mentioning 512MB per slot?

My personal opinion is that if anyone had gotten these to work in out  
Macs to get past the 1.5 or 2gb limit, it would be all over the net  
and these lists.


Go for it and report the results back to the list. Just test it by  
itself and also with the other slots filled with 512MB sticks to see  
if you can break the 1.5 or 2gb limit.

also found RAM pulled from a Dell PowerEdge 2500 Server on ebay, and
it IS ECC and registered

2GB 2x 1GB PC133 Dell Poweredge 2500 2550 Memory RAM

http://cgi.ebay.com/2GB-2x-1GB-PC133-Dell-Poweredge-2500-2550- 
Memory-RAM-/300431955290? 
cmd=ViewItempt=COMP_EN_Networking_Componentshash=item45f323d55a#ht_2 
428wt_808


so if Mark actually used RAM pulled from a DPE2500, that would be the
reason he had/has so many glitches. ;O)


Not to mention the destruction of the memory slots by forcing in  
memory that will not fit.

Even more important, they also released 4.1 for those of us running

 This just means the chip set has no practical maximum, and it  
 supports 1 TB, or 1.5 TB or even 2 TB.

Got the answer early this morning (before 6AM Eastern) from OWC's tech
support.

As I suspected, they just never tested with anything larger than 1TB,
so no guarantees. They did not say it wouldn't work so I am guessing
there are no real issues.
