PB1400 ATA Flash 1.0 - (3/10/97) The PowerBook 1400 ATA Flash Extension corrects a problem that can occur with certain ATA Flash PCMCIA cards. The PowerBook 1400 ATA Flash Extension corrects a problem that can occur with certain ATA Flash PCMCIA cards. You should install this extension if you use ATA Flash PCMCIA cards with a PowerBook 1400. (Flash cards are often used with digital cameras.) The PowerBook 1400 read-only memory (ROM) contains an ATA driver, which is software that tells the PowerBook how to recognize ATA Flash PCMCIA cards. There is an error in this ATA driver; when you insert an initialized Flash card, the PowerBook may erroneously prompt you to initialize the card, even though the card is properly initialized and may even contain data.
PB 1400 PMU Updater 1.0.1 - (2/7/97) The PowerBook 1400 PMU Updater is a system extension that remedies a potential problem with the contrast and brightness controls on some PowerBook 1400's. Please refer to the Read Me file included with with this software for complete details. The PowerBook 1400 PMU Updater is preloaded on your hard disk in the manufacturing process. If you reinstall the system software, you must install this extension separately if you are using System 7.5.3 or System 7.6. Be sure to save this disk (or a copy of the PowerBook 1400 PMU Updater) for this purpose.
The PowerBook 1400 PMU Updater is a system extension that remedies two situations which potentially can occur in some Macintosh PowerBook 1400 computers. The conditions are: * the contrast controls on the computer operate incorrectly, so that pressing the upward-pointing end of the control reduces contrast and pressing the downward-pointing end of the control increases contrast. * the brightness controls on the computer operate incorrectly, so that pressing the upward-pointing end of the control reduces brightness and pressing the downward-pointing end of the control increases brightness.
Who Needs to Use the Updater? The PowerBook 1400 PMU Updater corrects the conditions noted above but does not change other parts of the system software or hardware. If you reinstall the system software (System 7.5.3 or System 7.6), be sure to install the Updater on your computer after the system installation, even if you have not experienced these problems.
PowerBook 1400 HD Updater 1.0 - (1/15/97) Fixes a problem in certain instances where a hard disk utility may not report a PowerBook 1400 hard disk as an HFS volume. The PowerBook 1400 HD Updater is designed to provide a reference file that may not have been copied on the hard disk of some Macintosh PowerBook 1400 series computers. The reference file is not needed for normal operation of the PowerBook.
However, a disk utility program, such as Disk First Aid, looks for the reference file. If the file is not on the hard disk and you use Disk First Aid or another disk utility, you will see a message reporting that the hard disk is not an HFS volume and can't be checked by the program. (The message may be somewhat different with a disk utility other than Disk First Aid.)
Who Needs to Use the Updater? If the reference file is not on your computer's hard disk, you should use the PowerBook 1400 HD Updater to copy the file on the disk. To determine whether you need to use the Updater, follow these steps.
1. Locate Disk First Aid (in the Utilities folder on your hard disk) and open it by double-clicking its icon. 2. Click the icon of the hard disk to select it. 3. If you see a message that you can't repair the startup disk, click OK. (You want to verify the disk, which can be done on the startup disk.) 4. Click Verify. 5. If you see a message "This drive is not an HFS disk," you need to use the PowerBook 1400 HD Updater. (If a status message appears reporting the progress of verification, you do not need to use the Updater. You can click Stop to end the verification process.)
Trackpad Climate Control 1.1 - (10/23/96) System extension that will reduce or eliminate unexpected movements of the pointer caused by moisture on the trackpad or humidity. Works with the Macintosh PowerBook 190, Macintosh PowerBook 1400, and Macintosh PowerBook Duo 2300. Trackpad Climate Control is a system extension that will reduce or eliminate unexpected movements of the pointer caused by moisture on the trackpad or humidity. The extension is designed for the Macintosh PowerBook 190, Macintosh PowerBook 1400, and Macintosh PowerBook Duo 2300.
Who Should Use Trackpad Climate Control? You should use Trackpad Climate Control if you notice the pointer moving abruptly when you initially touch the trackpad or "jumping" to its previous position when you lift your finger after moving the pointer or tapping the trackpad.
Do not use Trackpad Climate Control if you have not had pointer-movement problems on your computer. (The extension could make the pointer less responsive when you use the trackpad.)

PowerBook VM Tuner 1.0 - (3/12/97) The PowerBook VM Tuner enhances system stability while using virtual memory on the PowerBook 1400 with Mac OS 7.6. Previous or later versions of the system software do not require this extension. The PowerBook VM Tuner enhances system stability while using virtual memory on your PowerBook 1400. During the manufacturing process, the PowerBook VM Tuner file is preloaded into the System Folder on your hard disk, but it is not part of the "Install Mac OS" system software installer. Therefore, if you reinstall the Mac OS 7.6 system software, you may need to manually reinstall the PowerBook VM Tuner file.
The PowerBook VM Tuner is a system extension that enhances system stability on PowerBook 1400 models when running memory intensive applications. It eliminates a problem with moving the cursor during heavy memory use while virtual memory is turned on.
Who Needs to Install the PowerBook VM Tuner? The PowerBook VM Tuner was preloaded into the System Folder during the manufacturing process, but if you reinstall the Mac OS 7.6 system software, you may need to manually reinstall the PowerBook VM Tuner file. If you do a "normal" system software installation, you do not need to reinstall the PowerBook VM Tuner. If you do a "clean" system software installation, you will need to reinstall the PowerBook VM Tuner.
A normal system software installation replaces changed system files and adds new ones, but leaves alone other files (such as the PowerBook VM Tuner). A clean system software installation creates a new System Folder on your hard disk. The old System Folder is renamed Previous System Folder. Since your computer has a new System Folder, you must reinstall the PowerBook VM Tuner in the new System Folder.
For more information about the differences between a normal and a clean installation of system software, refer to the Mac OS installation instructions in your PowerBook 1400 user's manual.

PB 1400 Floppy Update 1.0.2 - (1/28/97) The PowerBook 1400 Floppy Update corrects problems that could occur with DOS/Windows-formatted floppy disks on PowerBook 1400c/133 models running System 7.5.3. Please refer to the Read Me file included with with this software for complete details. You should install the PowerBook 1400 Floppy Update if:
* You are using a PowerBook 1400c/133 model * You are using System 7.5.3 (System 7.6 or later does not require this update) * You use DOS/Windows-formatted floppy disks to exchange data with computers running DOS or Windows
Note: In most cases, the PowerBook 1400 Floppy Update is already installed on your PowerBook 1400c/133; it was installed on your hard disk at the factory. However, if you had a problem with your computer that required you to perform a "clean" installation of system software, the PowerBook 1400 Floppy Update is no longer present in your System Folder.

Intelligent Battery Update - (9/1/95) Fixes a problem with charging certain batteries in PowerBook 500 series computers. This document provides information about the Intelligent Battery Recondition software. The batteries of the PowerBook 500 series computers are intelligent, which means they have a small microprocessor in them that monitors the battery's status. The system software communicates with the microprocessor and uses the information stored inside it to tell you how much time is left, if the battery is charging, etc. Under certain conditions, the information stored in the battery can become corrupted and cause the system software to incorrectly report the battery status. The Intelligent Battery Recondition software updates this information in the battery and restores normal operation. This software only works on the PowerBook 500 series computers. Full Readme
