Mac G3 beige desktop/keyboard/flash drive plugin

Someone gave me this computer & I thought It might be kinda fun to mess around with it since i've never had a mac, only a pc. I cannot for the life of me figure out where i plug the keyboard in! Or the flash drive(the extended plug & regular plugs on it are far too big for anything on the back of the computer), but everything else is fine.I have googled this to death but maybe I am wording my search wrong. Do you think you can help please?

This unit does not have USB ports only discontinued ports called ADB, they look exactly like S-video ports, that is where the keyboard or mouse goes, PC keyboards do not work in these ports only specific ADB keyboards and Mice will work here. If you need any more info on the connectors feel free to ask me

Whare can i get a new optical drive for my imac g3


eBay is a great place to shop for new/used hardware for your Mac. You can even find "parts machines" to keep around for emergencies.

I know this is an old question, and I'm hoping you've already gotten an answer. Maybe this can help someone else if you have your drive already.

I bought an imac g 3350 . never had a mac before


Download your program. Make sure it is for YOUR OS. A .dmg should appear on your desktop when it is finished. Double click that. It should open a file with an application icon and a drive icon on the desktop. Open your applications folder from your hard drive, then drag the application icon to that. Eject the drive icon from the desktop by dragging it to the trash.

I just purchased an old mac g4 and I would like to copy my desktop folder from my beige g3 desktop to the g4.


OK, put them on the same network (or connect them with an Ethernet cable), turn on File Sharing on both machines, connect from one machine to the other, which gets you access to the drive on the remove machine, and then drag and drop the contents of your Desktop across the link.

Apple Macintosh PowerBook G3 Start-up problem


Your mac doesn't recognize the system folder. Try to find the original boot disks that came with the machine, and see if you can mount the hard disk while booting from the CDs. If you can, I'd backup the data as soon as possible and reinstall the operating system, including a full hard drive reformat. If you can't see the hard drive from the boot cd, another option is to hold down the T key during startup to boot the mac into "target disk mode" - this will allow you to hook up the g3 to another computer as an external hard disk in order to back up the data.

I have a Mac G-3 and my flash drive is not recognized on the desktop. Do you know why?


I found out that Mac G3's have an operating system that does not recognize the Flash drive technology because Flash drives came after the OS-9 software.

It may be just a desktop folder which you would use to continue an installation, you should delete and start again.
