Media 100 Dongle
by Dave Ten on Jul 20, 2006 at 1:22:47 am
I have purchased an old MAC with the nubus media 100 card and breakout box.
The dongle that goes between the keyboard and PC is missing.
I cannot use the s/ware. Media 100 do not have any.
Any ideas how to overcome this problm.

You can try ebay, they do come up once in a while (that is where I purchased one of mine).
There are a couple versions of the dongle too. One is a basic dongle that allows video capture but no effects (I think if you upgraded your system Media 100 would give you the basic dongle so you could still capture using the old hardware since you had to send in the old dongle). Then there is the full deal dongle that allows special editing effects.
I do not know if the dongle itself has been cracked or not to allow operation of the software without it.
Out of curiosity what software version do you have, and what Mac did you get it in? My 100 is currently in a Quadra 950 but I might transfer it to a Quadra 800 along with a Jackhammer SCSI card. Most people use Radius 81/100 setups.
