So I installed ProTools LE 5.1.1 and attempted to get my AudioMedia III card to work and... it looks like my card is dead :(
When launching ProTools, it simply says "Unable to create a DAE deck."

This might explain why I had so much trouble with the control panels and sound driver extensions I tried recently.
This card has been sitting in a box of random Mac parts for years, and who knows? Maybe static killed it, or it was bad when pulled.

Anybody ever fixed one of these cards before? I'm not even sure if it's worth it.

Thanks reeskm  :)  for the confirmation of my deduction although the OP seems to have moved on…

I just love it when I put in time and effort trying to help someone out and they just ghost their own thread without a peep…

Ah, the incredibly fleeting nature of the internet. Well, that being said I've only recently returned here after moving on to other things a while back. Glad to be back.

Another note on this particular interface: With Cubase VST/32 5.0, so far it seems to work but when I try and launch the ASIO Countrol Panel through the Settings->Audio Setup... panel, It just greys out and fails to launch anything. So the only real control over the ASIO latency and buffers is to be found through the FA101 (Apple) Control Panel that ships with the driver pack. Can anybody else confirm this? Or do I just need to grab the Cubase version off this site, because 5.0 had some issues with the ASIO setup?

hdd case #4 arrived.

so, i have 12 now, but still only 7 of them are currently in use.

i could not resist and added another one - but this time the NAS version.

now it is 3x3, 8x firewire and 1x ethernet, and i promised myself to stop.

two functioning and one broken in reserve.

afaik the nvidia 5x - 7x wont give you any 3D performance under OS9. so they are only useful if you want to drive a 30".

in addition, the AGP versions of them will have to be prepared to run as 4x AGP instead of x8, you probably know what that means.

a proper solution for a first generation G4 should be the geforce 2 mx, which is found in most quicksilvers. you can easily aquire one by buying an outdated or broken quicksilver 733/867
 
 
to your other question: like zef said, you can look at AGP as a kind of "yet another PCI slot". MacOS classic and Mac OSX PPC are very bad in supporting external GPUs, but therefore, as opposed to older windows OS, you can combine any graphics cards in AGP and PCI slots like you wish and use them together or only one of them.

as soon a monitor is turned off or is no connected at all, even the preference setting for "main monitor" will automatically switch, so that you are not left with no menubar. :)

You should be able to remove the AGP one if you don't need it.
For me, AGP is just a sort of PCI overclocked and dedicated for graphics cards.
Why don't you buy a nVidia to put in your AGP instead of your ATI ? I would be better than a PCI one …

Did you check this reference website ?

Yeaaa that's definitely true, though the reason why I'm wanting to use a PCI card
over AGP is because I don't currently have any other PCI graphics cards to flash an AGP with.
So if I could get away with just buying one card, flashing with one of my like 15 (all incompatible)
AGP cards I'd love to do that.

Unless.. the AGP FX 5200 has noticeably better performance than the PCI variant.. then I could justify buying 2

sure, if you get it flashed right or if it is for mac, a PCI card will work.

Ohh, nice!~ Will I need to keep the AGP slot populated or will
just the PCI card do alone? Sorry if I'm overthinking this
still very new to the realm of PowerPC Macs.

Also would it be cool with you if I referenced your reply in a video?

Hey!~ Looked around on Google and stuff but couldn't find anything on the subject so,

Is it possible to use a PCI graphics card in an AGP Mac? I'm planning on
buying a PCI Nvidia FX 5200 (because I'm a cheap fuck in need of more VRAM)
and flashing it for use in my Graphite G4 450 Mhz Gigabit which currently has an ATi Rage 128 Pro AGP
though I'm not sure if it'll work because the Rage 128 is what it shipped with

Any help is highly appreciated, thanks for reading!

Reason / Rebirth / Recycle by Propellerheads / Rebirth on Powerbook 5,4
« Last post by Steve_W on October 16, 2021, 11:26:12 AM »
Hi guys I have tried to run Rebirth on my Powerbook 5,4 and need the classic environment to do it.  I have 10.4.11 running.

I know how to do it but I am in the process of upgrading the RAM to 2GB and installing a 128GB SSD as it only has an 8GB hard disk in it.

Anyone used it successfully in OS 9 classic mode on Tiger?

Thanks all!
