Friday: installed the Aztech Sound Galaxy NX Pro 16 drivers for Windows 95C on my Packard Bell Pack-Mate 28 Plus and removed the XT-IDE Universal BIOS chip from the network card, gutted a broken PSU that worked for a while and it quit working one day and MacGyvered it (bent the sides at a 90 degree-ish angle) to fit the CHiLL Wave Table board with my Yamaha DB50XG installed, hooked up the switching power supply, the MIDI cable from the Roland MT-32, and the RCA to 3.5mm jack audio cable to my MPU-401 clone card and it works. Had to change the GSPLAY.CFG for the MIDI addresses: IRQ and I/O Address and the type from SB to MPU401 to get the files to play and the reset SYX commands sent to the Roland MT-32 and the Yamaha DB50XG.
Saturday: went to a local game shop I've never been to before until then and hooked up my SNES/N64/GameCube, PS1, Genesis Model 1, and Original Xbox using the new Hyperkin HDTV adapters and set my DVDO Edge to 4:3 mode, as well as the HDTV cables for the PS1/PS2, SNES/N64/GameCube, and Genesis Model 1. I also sprayed DeoxIt D5 on my Original Xbox's IDE ribbon cable as it displayed a code error 09 for missing drive parameters and the DVD drive read a disk and stopped reading them after that and I also fixed the issue where the DVD drive would get stuck without a disk in the drive with 70% Isopropyl alcohol and a Q-tip soaked in it to fix the belt and clean the tracks on the tray itself. I also swapped the DVD-RW drives in my dad's computer as it would try to rip a CD onto iTunes and it stops getting detected and even the drive I swapped it with didn't work either. I cleaned the SATA cable with my DeoxIt D5 and the CD was ripped successfully after that. I placed the other DVD drive that was in there into my Socket 370 build using the SATA to IDE adapter I bought months ago as the DVD drive that was in there refused to read any disk I placed inside. I had to change the jumper on the CD-RW drive to slave as the SATA to IDE only has master as a setting and no jumper to switch it from master to slave, but, it works and I switched the drive letters so the DVD-RW shows as Drive E and the CD-RW as Drive D.
The Genesis cable does support the Master System and Nomad (don't have either yet) easily.
I should get a better power brick for my SNES and Genesis as the ones I have don't have UL listed on there, which is a big no-no in the USA to not have such label. My RCA Switching power supply that does voltages from 6V-12V AC or DC is ETL and UL listed, and SA listed. Too bad they don't make adapters that fit into the SNES. Heck, I can MacGyver one safely by crimping the wires together and heatshrink them with electrical tape going around in case bare metal is exposed, but, that won't necessarily be a good idea. eBay, here I come.
