    G3 to G4 HD swap
    I have a blue and white G3 tower that has essentially become useless. I'm scavenging the RAM, but I'm also wondering if it's even possible to put it's 10 GB harddrive in a dual 450 MHz G4 that I'm upgrading to. There's room for 2 more drives in the G4, but I wasn't sure if the G3 HD would be compatible.

    if the pins match up, then it will work. many G3 still used SCSI HDs, but the blue and white should use IDE interface, just as the G4 450 did.

    I'm fairly certain it isn't SCSI, so I guess I'm good. At least, I'll find out tonight...

    You should have no problems. Just be sure to get the jumpers right.
