Hi all,
I just recently obtain another Voodoo5 from my family relative.
It was from a MAC computer.

The problem is, I thought I can just put it into a computer and it work. But it didn't.

A normal PC wont do the trick. There is just no Display at all. However, I heard there are ways to flash the BIOS!

But I don't know how or what to do... Any Advice?

Hi there!

I recently purchased two Voodoo5 5500's (PCI for MACINTOSH).

One was already PC flashed with the 1.18 bios enabling DVI! ....see picky



The other one, I had to exorcise myself!

Had trouble flashing the MAC card with the BIOS located @ 3dfxzone.it

Tried another one from http://welcome.to/3dfxBios
1.18 (Digital Output Enabled) under the heading Voodoo5 5500 Pci

It succesfully worked but the video BIOS bootup screen reported it as a Voodoo4 4000 or 4500.
(can't exactly remember which one)

Phreaked out and ended up dumping the working one I had, then flashed that one up! Both work great!
The DVI on both cards are SWEET!

Think about it, GLIDE™ on DVI - no loss of picture quality through DAC. I highly recommend them.

P.S. You can grab my verified working BIOS file from here! (flash tools included)
http://web.aanet.com.au/homeof/pc-physician/V5-5500MAC-PCbios.zip



The flash(V5-5500MAC-PCbios.zip) did work! I am able to use the MAC version from my PC..
The normal VGA works like a charm!

However...

The normal DVI, I tried to use the DVI-HDMI converter! I wanted to plug into my 32" TV. When I did that, there was no display. There was no Output at all...

I am 110% sure that my ATI or Nvidia in my other home PC, works fine with the converter DVI - HDMI. (Already Tested)

The converter is similar to this http://cgi.ebay.com/DVI-Male-HDMI-Female-M-F-Adapter-Converter-HDTV-/230454798100?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35a82d2714
or http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3984.m570.l1313&_nkw=DVI+HDMI&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Have anyone try this yet? DVI to HDMI? Anyone?
