So much easier than I imagined!
I have an older Mac G4 (dual 450) and bought a 500GB internal HD (Seagate from Buy.com as well) because I started working with video and my original HD only has 20GB. I heard the only way to get this model Mac to recognize anything over 128GB's was to add an ATA Controller card. I bought one from CompUSA because they said "a PCI card is a PCI card". That was my first mistake, listening to them. It didn't work so I got this card because upgrading Mac's is what Sonnet does. I installed this card, hooked up the cables for this new HD to be a slave, restarted, it came up in my OS 9.2, I formatted it into 3 partitian (they say 200GB max per partitian) and that was it. I restarted with OS 10.4 and there they were. It took about 10 minutes and works awesome. I don't see any lag time saving to it or retrieving from it even with the large video files I'm dumping on to it. Any other upgrades I do will be from Sonnet.
