modding a pismo - 03/12/05 09:40 AM

Hey, I am modding a pismo (powerbook G3)(okay-it could be a lombard...) and I need to fit it in a smaller case. I need cables to connect certain boards to the motherboard in order to decrease the width and depth. I need one to connect the power assembly to the board- it has 2 rows of 15 pins- 30 total. It is in the picture on the left. I need one to connect the board that attaches front center and has the mouse click button on it. This is in the picture on the right. I would also really like to be able to use the dvd/cd drive so I need something for it too- although I doubt it exists. there is no picture of that. I apologize for the poor quality of the picture. Any help would be appreciated.

With what you got, there are a couple things you can try. With the power board you can get a couple pin blocks and exted them by wires, kinda making your own cable. This would make a clean looking cable. The other option is just running wire from Point A to B, without the pins. It would work, but make one mess.

As for your CD-ROM, that may be a little tricky. You might have to work with the placement of the CD-ROM.

Maybe someone else has an idea on what to try?
