Re: PowerBook 170 SoundApp Error-11

I considered that possibility after getting QuickTime installed, so I ran SoundApp yesterday after the QuickTime 4 installation and it still crashed. After that, I uninstalled QuickTime 4 completely since I won't be using it anytime soon. Waiting around for the 170s slow hard drive might have been w...

Re: PowerBook 170 SoundApp Error-11

I got QuickTime installed on this bad boy. And it was.... rough. I definitely shouldn't have put the last version made for 68k machines on something so old, that poor decision was the result of my own hubris.

PowerBook 170 SoundApp Error-11

Howdy, everyone, I've been tinkering with my old PowerBook 170, but I've run into some trouble. I installed SoundApp on the machine and copied over some music to see how gracefully the 170 could handle some multimedia. Transferring songs over serial takes forever and a day, but playback itself works...
