Thanks so much!

Re: Card to drive Roland sound module

Gotcha. As mentioned, if you're using a Roland module that supports serial-port communications (you can tell because it'll have a little Mac-style mini-DIN on the back) you can get Win 3.1 and 95 drivers for serial-port MIDI communications here; it says MPU-401 but the readme also includes instruct...

Re: Card to drive Roland sound module

Gotcha. What kind of system (platform/OS) will you be using it in? I have a handful of different ISA/PCI sound cards with MIDI out and could probably find something to suit you, if drivers are available for your system. Alternatively, some GM-oriented MIDI modules from that period have a serial-por...

Re: Yamaha Audician 32 Plus

Just curious, but is there a reason it has to be that particular card, if you're just going to be using it to drive an external MIDI module? No, it just seemed like the best option when comparing price and the features I need. Other cards that could drive one would be fine too. I'll edit the OP. Th...

Card to drive Roland sound module

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a Yamaha Audician 32 Plus card as I'm looking to get a Roland sound module at some point. It seems they're all sold out on eBay even though there used to be a bunch (except one for $32 if you include shipping which seems a bit pricey). Thought somebody here might know wh...

Installed on a ThinkPad 365X.

edit: Also should mention that I get this same result whether the card is inserted or not.

Rhapsody DR2 can't get network working

I'm using a 3C589D card as described here: http://www.rhapsodyos.org/hardware/etherlink/etherlink_1.html and have it configured in Rhapsody. I've entered all of the correct TCP/IP information and using ifconfig -a it shows the settings I put in, but when I try to ping my router I get "Host is d...

Re: Anyone have any idea where I could find a CD-ROM drive like this?

A very kind user on thinkpads.com has offered me a 365X they put a CD-ROM into for the cost of shipping. I guess this is resolved! Thanks everyone

Yeah, that website has some pretty bad reviews and also only allows for credit cards so I'd really rather not risk it. Thank you though

Do you have a mfg & part # for the drive? I have a bunch of orphan drives and might be able to find one that would fit it your housing, if I knew what to look for. CD-ROM Drive (4x speed) 69H7925 CD-ROM Drive (6x speed) 82H8160 CD-ROM Drive (8x speed) 82H8173 Not exactly sure on mfg, around 199...

Re: Anyone have any idea where I could find a CD-ROM drive like this?

Oh hey, I think I have the same model thinkpad. Unfortunately that's a big ask, afaik that drive is so weird and antiquated that it can't even read 700mb CD-Rs, only 650s, I think it was built down to a price. Great thinkpad though, I've got one running win3.11 with a PCMCIA ethernet card and a gam...

Anyone have any idea where I could find a CD-ROM drive like this?

I have a ThinkPad 365XD which uses a 2.5” 44-pin hard drive connector for the CD-ROM internally. The connector looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/STqfwYI.jpg (big image so I linked it instead, sorry about low quality but you can see the connector at least). The drive is bad and I need a new one. I...
