Just a heads-up on the MDD caps list.

There was one cap in the MDD list that was "questionable" (per MacOS+) that you might review before ordering. If you read through that thread you will find what I'm referring to. You might simply want to heed MacOS+ comment concerning just that one cap. Have big fun!

well my E4XT has an option in the settings to "Ignore host on ID ____" which was what I had to use in my chain. On the Kurzweil, its fine as long as you don't try to "access" it... it shows up as an E4XT in the disk selection menu. But everything else on the chain is visible and usable to each sampler. I use this so I can share one SCSI2SD between the two devices.

So, your chain looked like this?
And E4XT is ignoring Kurz as host? Sorry, if I'm totally off. This is advanced SCSI!

Also @DieHard: I sent you a PM, but nothing is showing up in my sent box. Did you get it or did I do something wrong?

I am about to do my first recap of another apple product but as shipping costs are higher than for the caps itself I need to make a bigger order list so i will include at least the caps for the PS as well.

what i wonder is: they all seem to need power, which is not 100% ideal. maybe there is one which does not need power?

Of course it needs some power. There is chip and IDE40-connector cannot(/should not) give power for it.

Pleases provide source/link/search parameters for that yellow StarTech-based adapter and I’ll possibly add it to my shopping & test list. (Still waiting on China orders for the others.) And I might also pick up this WD 250GB / M.2 to try with it.

As for “power” / regarding the yellow Startech… is there a molex connector on the backside? (Like to see both sides of that adapter.)

there is a lot of funny stuff out there which i have never seen before. :D

Only put that M2 to USB3 adapter in SATA adapter and we can skip USB 2 with OS9 :D

Thanks Philgood! (I try.)  ;)

It's been awhile since I revisited the MDD PSU recap adventure
and the latest effort here... was a QS PSU recap.
(Still waiting on one replacement cap...
as one I received was too fat to install in QS PSU limited space.)

im very confused then. that's a 3124 card. you've been talking about 3124 cards. but its not a 3124 card?

There are different builds of 3124 cards.
- A quite popular build is with a PCIe bridge, it can be used on all new machines with PCIe slot. Not the best idea for really new ones and Thunderbolt, but it works.
- There is a PCI (not PCI-X!) version, which is castration and a bad configuration in addition to that.
- There are few versions based on the reference design
- There is a Dawicontrol-made PCI-X card with a long EEPROM, not the square one. It is removable, but looks a bit unusual.

The PCI version is not to my liking, it is really a silly solution (a PCI-X ASIC with castrated bus).
Other than that, the rest is quite similar. The DAWICONTROL had Win-10 drivers, so it makes sense to support it.

The easiest magic wand is called 3124, the MacOS 9 driver is scheduled and won't be a big challenge.

At this time want to finish the 680-3112-3114 driver.
Do not expect big wizardy regarding that project, 680-3112-3114 is not a very fast chip, but reliable enough and the new code base can be re-used for many more things.

Eagerly awaiting this; the random 3124 I got off ebay is ready and willing!
It does not have the "standard" chip though, but the outlet is socketed. Will I need to swap it out for another chip?

Is it made by Dawicontrol? I do have one of their 3124 controllers.
The new "X" code for 3124 is there, if anyone wants to try it out, feel free to ask.

Currently stuck with 680-3112-3114 in Intel, I think that my PCI-PCIe bridge (the cheap one, made in China)  controller is an other junk.
Looked up the Amazon, nothing, but bad reviews. The Startech (made in Taiwan) got good reviews.

The Chinese adapter is great to test the faulty I/O path and time-outs though.

As i already told I have the PCI-e version of the 3124 in my G5 so I could try your driver. I'm sure you already answered it on another thread but let me just ask you again please.
What is the advantage of your driver to the stock one in my case?

-Bootability (dont know right now if the stock ones already deliver that) ?
-Speed ?


Th bootability is there, the speed advantage as well.
It is more robust than the old - but I think, the best would be just to try out the driver, without flashing the chip first.

I do have one PCIe-based card as well.
If you are not in hurry, maybe wait. A "beta" driver was posted few months ago, you can install it.
For the future I plan to maintain all drivers actively.
