Powerbook Ti 1GHz PC Cards?
« on: May 20, 2024, 08:29:08 AM »

As I never cared about PCMCIA/CardBus/PC Cards, I am kind of newbie regarding such hardware. Please go on and tell me what kind of Type I/II PC Cards are in existance for my 1GHz Ti Powerbook. I read in another thread that booting is sadly unsolved (what would double the "HD"-throughput compared to the IDE bus).

Go on and inspire me. What can be done with such cards? The more useful the better! Please just Mac OS 9 compatible stuff – so for example no no USB 2 cards that work as USB 1 ;)

Huh? What booting is unsolved? Off of PCMCI cards or off of something else external, like FW, for example?

Booting off PCMCIA, see here: https://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?topic=5620.0
everything else works fine.

Oh, I see.

As to your original request, I think RME had a CardBus card for their Hammerfall audio interfaces, although I'm not 100% sure it was OS9 compatible. It came around 2001, so it must be, but with them, you'll never now. RME always were PC centric.

UPD. Just checked - yes, it was OS9 compatible. Not cheap though. ;)

the rme was also sold as Steinberg Nuendo 96/52 DSP Digital I/O Card and it works under os9

there also is a Magma CardBus that hooks up a full pro tools mix rig to your tibook - ive found the card and the drivers from waybackmachine ... one of these days im gonna hook it up

You succeeded in telling me about the only two cards I already was aware of. Both are too expensive and not mobile enough (but of course I would take them when offered as present) ;-p

Please go on telling me what further cards are existing! In fact I expected to have already 20 suggestions today and some aha-effects at my side. :)
