Double sided ram in eMac - 03/09/09 03:32 PM

I just got my eMac today and put in the 2x512 pc133 double sided ram. No worky?! It is the 1ghz Ati usb 1.0 model. I put the 256 single sided back in and after pram reset and a couple of boots, it works fine. So if anyone knows or has one....is single sided the only type that works for this model? No firmware updates are needed as per apple.com and this thing is near worthless with only 256mb, lol.

Thanks in advance.

It seems that from what I have gathered that double sided ram is in fact compatible, BUT, not the high density type. Bummer. Lower density is twice as expensive.

Got my new double sided, low density ram and it makes a vast difference....yet maxes out when I use multiple simple apps. Ugh. OC!!!!!! Maybe it will hit 1.42 with a bit of volt modding?
