So the floppy and zip modules are the same for the 190/5300/3400/3500-Kanga.

Nice to read this, thanks. Smile

The only G3 it would be compatible with is the Powerbook 3500 aka Kanga.
It was a Powerbook 3400 with a G3 processor on the motherboard.
Quickly superceded by the G3 Wallstreet (which uses different zip module form although the raw drive is the same.)
So the floppy and zip modules are the same for the 190/5300/3400/3500-Kanga.

Determined I own the 190/5300 version

Box says 190/5300, but manual says "PowerBook G3" also.
Um, there is a sticker on the box which says "Also compatible with G3 Series Powerbooks."

Is this what finkmac (see below) is looking for? I think so.

Zip drivers were built into OS 8.6 - 9.2.2.
Or you can use this installer:

If you're using 8.1 this is probably a better choice:

Determined I own the 190/5300 version, including manual valid for both 1400 and 190/5300.

The link below, provided by OZ1SMB, contains a similar object, so must I add my version to this 1400 entry or create a new one?

Edit: Must be a different architecture to support the PowerBook 190, so it's worth a new entry.

This might work with the PowerBook G3 Wallstreet

Does anybody have the drivers for the Wallstreet version of this module?
