Emac 700mhz Memory upgrade
I've unsuccessfully tried three times to upgrade the memory in my Emac. I have two 128mb sticks (133mhz) of unknown brand that are working fine - but i need at least 512mb.
I've tried three sticks now: One that i had already from an old PC (can't read brand), one Infineon 512mb pc133 stick, and one that i think says 'MXO' again 512mb & 133mhz.
Any of the 512mb sticks don't register. if they're the only memory stick in the mac refuses to start with a single beep - or if there is a 512mb and 128mb stick in, it shows as only 128mb when it's started.
The PC stick works in a PC, and the second two were both brand new. What am i doing wrong? i can't afford to make another bad purchase now!
any help would be appreciated.

Step 1: Go to MacSolutions.com
Step 2: Select Emac Memory from dropdown menu
Step 3: Purchase eMac Memory
Step 4: If it doesn't work, send it back for a free replacement
Step 5: Sell the other memory on Ebay to a PC user who doesn't have a finicky motherboard
Macs are notoriously picky about their memory requirements. It is not uncommon for a generic or non-apple-tested stick to fail. The easiest thing to do is buy from a Mac reseller who:
a) Tests their RAM in Macs before they sell it and
b) Offers a no hassle return policy

Thanks for such a quick reply. That would be excellent, however i'm in the UK - and the few sites i found that worked like macsolutions.com were all in the US.
Anybody know a UK supplier?
