Storage Technologies / Re: Low level/zero HDD/SDD format benifits

Thanks for the heads up. I got an os9 drive that causes system hang ups/instability but hopefully it's nothing major.  I also got a 1tb laptop HDD that Windows insists has suffered excessive shock. Should I even waste my time attempting to revive them?

for OS9? i dont think so.

IMO low level formatting tools most interesting application is when you have a problem with a drive.

for example you can certify drives with it and see if the number of physically corrupt blocks raises after overwriting the second time, which would be an indicator for shrapnel.

System Utilities & File Management / Re: IMG format seems no longer supported
« Last post by quadratour on October 16, 2019, 06:08:21 AM »
Just a note: macOS Mojave doesn't any longer open the IMG files posted here (tested: Logic Audio Anthology, Dongle Emulator). Apparently Apple has dropped support for legacy IMG formats. I could still open them with macOS 10.10 though.

Storage Technologies / Low level/zero HDD/SDD format benifits

Besides the obviousness of clearing data permanently and fixing corrupt sectors. Are there any real noticeable improvements performance wise? Would this make an HDD behave differently than a normal format with previous data being overwritten? Please forgive my ignorance as I am sure this has been covered. Also would this be different on an SSD? This is mostly pertaining to os9. I am fully aware that some OS can't even do this type of format natively.  Any and all info or even a link covering this is very much oblieged.

HELP BOARD ! Installing & Troubleshooting the Classic Mac OS / Re: VID ISSUE

Does the Startup Disk CP freeze if the Leopard HD is disconnected/unmounted? And any other drives you've got for that matter.
The issue might be related to the actual checking of the drives, rather than the CP itself.

Thanks!

I donít think that this means any change for the super-mini. The ATI software checks the amount of VRAM present and behaves appropriately.

I loved that write-up, ELN. It's both concisely written and incredibly useful. Well done for both troubleshooting the issue and patching it!

I have one question, though: is there something users of the 1.5GHz version of the mini should look out for in regards to the fact the included Radeon 6200 chip is the 64MB VRAM version instead of the 32MB version present on the other 3 mini models? (1.25GHz, 1.33GHz and 1.42GHz.) I wondered if that posed any relevance regarding all the NDRVs and whatnot.

HELP BOARD ! Installing & Troubleshooting the Classic Mac OS / Re: VID ISSUE

I tried display prefs. no go. As far as I know I was dorking around inside the case while it was still plugged in. I heard as spark and quickly unplugged the computer. When I powered back up, the graphics card was non-existent. I ordered the NVida 4MX on eBay. I installed it, this time with the computer unplugged, and it was up and running. The only problem is, at boot OS 9 loads in 256 colors not millions as the monitor control panel shows. And I can choose OS 9 In my system prefs. and boot into OS 9 from OS X Leop., But my Start-up disc Control Panel in OS 9 is non-responsive and locks up so I can't boot back into OS X.

Hi guys, in the past you helped me a lot and I will be infinitely grateful with the Macos9Lives team for the time and effort. But the fact is that I need your help again ... Do any of you have a copy of the installer of these versions? Thank you
