That QuickTime Showcase disc is a delightful multimedia experience! This page has some really good stuff on it, nice job.

This bug was caused by the "special" menu ?

It was caused by having text above the "table of contents" (toc) in this page.

There are two automatic engines at work. One creates the "teaser" - the text you see when scrolling through lists of apps or games pages alphabetically. The other creates the toc. Having text above the toc caused a conflict between the two, which generated the multiple instances of text that we could see.

The fix, if there needs to be text above the toc, is to place HTML tags around that text when editing the page. e.g.; <p>, <strong>, <h2>, <cite>, etc.

Or, don't have text above the toc entry.

Mostly we don't need to use HTML tags in editing a page (unless adding links, etc), but in this case, it helped.

Is there a problem with this kind of page ? Double or triple introduction description above the menu.

Yes, its a bug that hasn't been nailed as yet (will it ever be? Wink )

The same "feature" affects the Introduction to Emulation page, where if anyone edits the description it will produce a duplicate "Happy Mac" pic.

I think its caused in pages with toc menus at the top of their page description. Tho' I'm not sure it affects every page with a toc in. As I said, an untracked bug... But it is possibly a "feature", not a bug. When looking for items alphabetically under "APPS", you see a summary (teaser), usually part of the first paragraph of each page. The auto system when creating these summaries as you save an edit, does not allow toc's to be included in the teaser, so if the toc is at the top of the page's description, this problem will occur.

It can be edited out manually if the person making changes to a page notices the double-ups taking place when editing it. I'll look into clearing the double-up paragraphs in this page next. But it won't cure the problem and likely on the next edit it will be back like Arnold Wink

Is there a problem with this kind of page ? Double or triple introduction description above the menu. Why is this generate that ? Curious...

[EDIT] Again, one more time with a screenshot added... I don't believe the user is responsible, because another has generated the same problem on another similar page.

The download named PM6500CD_761.ZIP (279.19 MB) - Use with caution (if at all):

Power Macintosh 5400, 5500, and 6500 series CD-ROM

CD-ROM Scan (alt="691 1559 A PM5500 SSW 761 CDv1")

Installation disc of Mac OS 7.6.1 for Power Macintosh 5400, 5500, and 6500 series, thanks to macwrench. Includes the typical OS 7.6.1 installer with AICK 1.2 inside the CD Extras folder.

PM5500CD_761.ZIP: Download Power Macintosh 5400, 5500, and 6500 series disc.

Contains Finder or User modified data and OS X hidden files - was modified in 2009.

Classic Mac OS Finder, issues warnings when mounting this image. This one needs to be replaced with an unmodified copy.

First off, let's compare what we downloaded. cksum of zip and content:

1786383653 145200454 Apple_Mac_OS_7.6_CD.zip
540124542 244086272 Apple Mac OS 7.6 CD.image

"Apple Mac OS 7.6 CD.image" Finder creator and type codes are 'ddsk' and 'rohd'. "Apple Mac OS 7.6 CD.image" is a plain (no compression, no sparse) volume image. Signature at offset x000 is LK, which I learn is boot block signature. Signature at offset x400 is BD, which is volume signature of HFS.

If you rename it to Apple_Mac_OS_7.6.cdr , then Mac OS X will automatically open it with Disk Utility (UDIF format UDTO).

A file of size 244086272 octets, is not divisible by 2048, is not a Compact Disc image. Apple_Mac_OS_7.6.cdr must be padded, before recording to Compact Disc. Easy, for instance:

dd if=/dev/zero bs=512 count=1 >> Apple_Mac_OS_7.6.cdr

Then it can be treated as an image for cooked Mode 1 data track, size 119183 sectors. To burn in Mac OS X:

hdiutil burn -verifyburn Apple_Mac_OS_7.6.cdr

(posted 2015-05-27; edited 2015-12-01)

I would not use this image. Its last mount time is 2009, and its alternate MDB (master directory block) contains nonsense. Original uploader (Anonymous) does not name origin.

Kasm279's picture
by Kasm279 - 2015, May 24 - 6:21am

What am I supposed to burn the image in Apple_Mac_OS_7.6_CD.zip with? Imgburn on windows doesn't recognize it. OS X Lion says it's a legacy format that should be converted, however gives a checksum error when trying to burn or convert it.

I have replaced the old one (MacOS76_floppy.zip) with the new one (MacOS76_floppy.sit), same contents but different archive format.

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2014, June 21 - 6:47am

I'm fairly certain there is an Apple CD here containing system floppy install sets in Disk Copy 4.2 6.x.x format (includes SSW 7.6). The name of it escapes me tho'. Perhaps Fortuna knows the one I mean.

Failing this, I can convert those in the zip file to Disk Copy 4.2 format and they'll be pretty much identical to the original. Just give me an hour or so.

[Edit]: Looks like Fortuna has helped out, so no need for me to now.

[Edit 2]: Remembered the CD with install floppy disk images; Apple Legacy Software Recovery CD. It has most if not all of the system floppy disk install sets, including 7.6 as Disk Copy 6 image files.

do you know of an archive that has them mountable on a real mac?

Fortuna Wave's picture
by Fortuna Wave - 2014, June 21 - 6:30am

Hello 9646gt. The file "MacOS76_floppy.zip" contains the floppy images that can be only mountable in emulators.

Thanks for helping me see that I am not just going crazy! I really need to find a download os 7.6 floppy images in english for my IIsi. Do you have ANY idea where I can find them? Even emailing if you don't want to disclose it here would be fine but I have got to find these Sad

@9646gt: See my edited reply below.

I have unzipped the main zip file with maczip with the same result. It creates a folder full of the .dsk images but no program seems to work with them. When I use desktop plus or pro and I click open image and select the fold with the dsk images in it nothing appears (as if it's not seeing ANY compatibles files). Also just dragging the .dsk image onto the disk copy 6.3.3 says "mount image operation did not complete" -8816 the file (insert filename) does not have a recognized file type. Could you maybe download the 20mb zip file and see how it behaves for you?

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2014, June 21 - 5:45am

[Edit] Please ignore what I wrote below. I've looked at the archive "MacOS76_floppy.zip (20.93 MB)" and the expanded .dsk files are not compatible with anything in a classic Mac OS, nor can I determine what created them in the first place.

The only success I've had at mounting them is by dragging them into a Mini vMac emulator's window running Mac OS 7.1 and they do mount as disks onto a desktop in that way.

While it is possible, via Mini vMac to recreate these mounted floppy disk images with Disk Copy 6.x or ShrinkWrap 2.1 or DiskDup+ to be used elsewhere. Its not an ideal situation.

I think this archive needs to be replaced with one that hasn't been bastardized in this fashion.

Its very likely that they've been zipped using MacZip on a classic Mac OS. MacZip is available here at the Garden if you want to try unzipping them again.

Other Zip capable programs including Stuffit Expander won't extract and restore the File & Creator Types of these extracted zip files correctly. I think that you'll find that they're actually DiskDup+ files with the Creator & File Types info not restored.

Try dragging the unzipped icons as is, onto a Disk Copy 6.3 application icon or alias and letting the mouse go. That should mount them OK even without the restored File & Creator Types.

9646gt's picture
by 9646gt - 2014, June 21 - 5:31am

Ok guys I need some help. I downloaded the 7.6 floppy images zip and have tried extracting with both stuffit and maczip. Both complete and give me .dsk images. DiskCopy 6.3.3 says it's not a recognized file type. ShrinWrap shows a progress bar quickly and then vanishes with nothing else appearing when I try and mount or write to disk. Disk copy 4.2 will not even show the desk files. Disk Dup doesn't work either. What am I doing wrong? I am doing all the work inside os 9.2.2 on a g3 ibook.

Apple:

Any time you install Mac OS versions 7.6, 7.6.1, 8.0, 8.1, 8.5, 8.5.1, or 8.6 on your computer, you should use Drive Setup 1.7.3 to update the driver on your hard disk again. If you are using a version of Mac OS prior to 7.6, it is not necessary to use Drive Setup 1.7.3 to update your hard disk drive. Note that Drive Setup 1.7.3 was tested with and is supported with Mac OS 7.5 through Mac OS 8.6.

Thanks for posting that - I didn't know that Rhapsody's missing parts was because of Hard disk failure, and I thought the G3 Blue and White disc would be in English. Oh well. I am happy with the Beta operating systems posted there though.

From emaculation, yksoft1 PM last October:

I could remember back in 2008 I had uploaded all those files to Mediafire, and they may have deleted a lot of files there because of lacking downloads.

Power Macintosh G3.iso is a Simplified Chinese OS 8.5 disc for blue white G3. I may upload this to another place if you want.

for RhapsodyDR2, I'm sorry but my original ISO file was lost in a hard drive crash.

I found a few good things, but the one i am stuck with is OS 8.5.1. I cannot extract them. I have Aladdin Expander 5 on my PC, and cannot extract them, because they are in *.sit.1, *.sit.2 and *.sit.3 files. How would I extract them?

... the uploader of the files on that site did not take much care in uploading the parts of the OSes in full (Every OS in zip parts seems to be missing the middle part).

Sorry , I posted that link,
but I said from the beginning, that I found that link out of a Chinese website, so it's not mine,

Actually I tested all the programs of the folder "Old Software" and everything works fine,
but I didn't check the OS's 'cuz I didn't need them.
and that's why I said :

...I downloaded and tested ALMOST all the software

still, it has good stuff.

Is it really? Well, why did I waste my time at that site to realize that everything is incomplete (Power mac g3 restore disc only has Part 1,2,3,4,5 and 7, and Rhapsody only has parts 1,2 and 4 :@) Is there any other sites that has the resources that the mediafire site, that are not incomplete?

I found this link sometime ago, I downloaded and tested almost all the software,
(ALL the software I've tested so far runs fine)
there are Mac OS 7, 8 and 9 installs there (and a lot of good programs)
so it's almost like a self-serve Mac Buffet..

Support for many Mac Plus games was discontinued after 7.5

I noticed this issue at the time with black & white BattleChess and Deluxe Music Construction Set.

@Balrog,

I still use my MDD (over my Mac Pro). I can ftp the MDD OS9.2.2 disk image up if you want. Too large for the 400MB limit, but surely the FTP will allow it. Any preferred format ?

I have those too! Smile What I am looking for, though, is the OS 9.2.2 discs for eMac and the newest MDD G4's. These are hard to get. Sad
