I'm new here, and our family has a Macintosh Performa/Power Macintosh
6300CD. I wanted to make a copy of the software restore CD, because
the original is becoming scratched. I inserted it into our Intel iMac
running OS X 10.5, created a read-only disk image, and burned it to a
CD. It looked alright in the iMac's Finder, but after inserting it
into the Performa, it would not boot when I held down Command-Option-
Shift-Delete, which will work fine with the original disc.
Another problem I am having is with the included Apple Desktop Bus
Mouse II. When I last turned on this system, (about a year ago) the
mouse was very hard to click. It took a lot of pressure to click the
mouse button so that the Mac would recognize the click. Now, no matter
how hard or soft I click the mouse button, it will not click. I also
cannot open the cover on the mouse; it's been locked and I cannot
unlock it with a pin.
I hope you will be able to help.
Thanks very much,
