    Just found a workaround to play Myst lll on Mac Pro 2006 1,1 running Snow Leopard. Ubisoft has an installer for the game at; [Mac] Myst III Installer - New ResidualVM Edition | Forums. I have tried...

    I believe I have heard of Hypercard before. Not 100% but I remember reading something about the developers of Myst and that name from years ago...I think. I've yet to put a disc in since the install...

    Password Keeper

    Apologies if I post this in the wrong place. Just move it if so. I installed os 10.6.3 on my Mac Pro and am wondering if someone can suggest a password keeper or safe for that OS. (Other than...

    Very cool! I was not paying attention when I first booted up and kept getting a window asking if I wanted to download and install "Rosetta" for a particular old piece of Nikon software. I clicked the...

    Update. I now have two Pioneer optical drives (refurbs.) installed on the Mac Pro and Snow Leopard installed as of twenty minutes ago. I've never purchased refurbs for my Macs before but these worked...

    I ordered two of these as the secondary drive was always empty. I also went ahead and for the warranty for one year. I should have them on or before the 29th and will swap them out and let you know...

    I simply wasn't certain where to post. I'll be careful not to do this again.
  8. No, it doesn't read other disks either. I do...

    No, it doesn't read other disks either. I do think I want to upgrade the drives as indicated in yours and the other reply. If I replace that Optiarc I may as well replace both drives so as to...
  9. Mac USB Super Drive

    Will the newer Mac USB super drive work on my old Mac Pro 1,1? I dug around and found my Snow Leopard CD from I don't know how many years ago. (it was in a shoe box in the garage.) My Optiarc disk in...
  10. Snow Leopard and Optical Drive Mac Pro 2006

    OK, after rummaging through a ton of old computer stuff I found my Snow Leopard OS disc. (and a pair of hiking socks!) I thought I had one so have held off trying to order one. I plopped it into the...

    Yeah, well, I'm old enough to know that I am one step away from dumb...always. Oh, the troubles I've seen! All my own doing. Now, I ask before I stick a house key in the electrical socket.
  12. I was considering putting Windows 10 on the...

    I was considering putting Windows 10 on the external drive using Bootcamp. The reason I asked is due to my getting hairbrained ideas without knowing what the result might be. If I had Windows on the...
  13. Using External Drives

    I have used external drives only for backup on my Macs. Not for anything else. My question is in way of wanting to expand the use of these devices. Rather than use them solely for back up what and...

    Thanks for the straight answer. Glad to hear that the Mac was right and I was wrong. And, I suppose that includes the internet recovery aspect also?

    I bought this and want to thank you for your suggestion. Should have it next Thursday the 21st. Evidently the "Rosetta" code was left out or taken out with the upgrade to Leopard? it's an interesting...
  16. Recovery mode isn't working. Mac Pro desktop 2006.

    I figured there would be more than one glitch or peculiarity when resurrecting the old Mac Pro. Recovery mode does not work (Cmd-R). I have not yet tried Opt-Cmd-R for internet as the machine is so...

    I am still getting used to where to post! Hey, I am 71 years old so I have an excuse. (is there a forum section for ancient Mac users?)
  19. One Final Question

    If I wanted to take the hard drive back to empty but for the OS how would I do that? In other words, start fresh with only the OS and its apps on it.

    I'm starting to think the same thing. I do believe I'll just leave well enough alone for now. I am considering replacing the CPU's in the near future. But, for now, just get used to what it does...

    The version running on that Mac right now is 10.6.8. I am in the process of taking care to delete only those apps which are unnecessary or that I remember were trials for one reason or another....

    This is the old tower Mac Pro. I had to buy a monitor and settled on the Viewsonic 22 inch. I call it the Mac Pro a wheel chock for a Mac Truck. It has Photoshop CS3 on it. No Lightroom but I have...

    I've spent the morning getting as far as I can as to hooking up. The 3.0 USB hub I purchased now has a wired Mac keyboard USB 2.0 hooked up but, as yet, I have not given it the "smoke test." (That's...
