2 x MDD G4s for sale, 1 OK, 1 for repair with Pro Tools Digi001
« on: October 06, 2017, 02:36:08 PM »
For collection only from Margate, Kent, UK (unless we can reach an agreement!)

Complete home recording studio, 1.25ghz dual CPUs in one of these, I think the other one (the non working one) is 867MHZ.  If memory serves (it's been a while), it just won't boot.   I've had the Apple diagnostics disk on it, I can't find the fault.  My guess is RAM or power.  Here's a screenshot:



The main machine comes with the max RAM that OS 9 will see & a fully functional Pro Tools Digi001 PCI card, with interconnecting cable & breakout i/o box.  I used an image from this site to get things going and everything works great.

I can supply much more detail & images if anyone has any interest in this kit.  I would love to keep it all but I am moving to a smaller place and I am just not using it, so it's gotta go!  Can be shown working fully in my home studio.

I will also include in this sale all the associated OS 9 goodies I have accumulated, including various disks & original Mac OS software such as Reason version 1 & 2.5 upgrade, various Logic books, original boxed versions of Logic, Mac OS X for dummies etc.  I'll even throw in a keyboard & mouse & a MIDI keyboard!

The community here has been good to me and very helpful, I'd love to sell all this to someone in here.  I'm looking for 300 for the whole kit and caboodle.  I will fully list everything ASAP with pictures...

Thanks all! Regards, Steve.

just resizing the image so that people can read this properly + have it fit on the screen

but, while im here,
ill add that steve here, has probably used PC ram that either
- doesnt have the right timings
- correct configuration of chips to be used on an MDD
- used a combination of memory chips that have slight differences
- (etc etc insert unknown reason for buggyness here)

visit here:
https://eshop.macsales.com/upgrades/apple-power-mac-g4-mirrored-drive-doors-2x1-25ghz

those paying close attention will notice the fact that if u select different versions of MDDs it will display different memory modules
for the 1.25 it only lists 2 types (listed below) whereas for the dual 867 MDD it lists 4 different types

compatible with MDD 2 x 1.25ghz:
512MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz CAS 3.0 184 Pin 64x64 DIMM Module
512MB PC2700 DDR 333MHz CL2.5 184 Pin SDRAM Module

compatible with MDD 2 x 867Mhz:
512MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz CAS 3.0 184 Pin 64x64 DIMM Module
512MB PC2700 DDR 333MHz CL2.5 184 Pin SDRAM Module
512MB PC2100 DDR 266MHz 184 Pin DIMM Module
256MB PC2100 DDR 266MHz SDRam DIMM Module

pretty sure that you are going to want DIMMs that are visually similar (8 chips on either side, seperated into 2 groups of 4, just like the owc pic)

this is just re-iterating the info i posted here: http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,4126.msg28239.html#msg28239
