just thought about doing this but realized I've never heard of anyone else doing it before...
I have an old 7500 (upgraded to a G3 390)
Can I get a Firewire PCI card with internal firewire? Then run a internal drive with the IDE to Firwire adaptor (in my case).
I can get the external IDE to Firewire kits for $79 at http://www.basoncomputer.com/\specif...n\CASE3IFW.htm
Can I take out the componets (minus the fan) and run the power from my 7500's internal power supply?
Why would anyone even try right?
Well it's an old machine but I want to use it for photoshop and take advantage of a 7200rpm 60gig Drive with out buying a crappy expensive interanl IDE/ATA card...
so your opinions....
would it over heat?
is the adaptor (fire to ide) to big?
would there be a speed diffrence?
why isn't there a interanl firewire bus option?
ok enough... comments
