    Imac 27", 3.3GHz, 512 flash storage, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    The second hard drive will have to be set up as master. Target mode, from memory, only recognizes master.

    I'd just take the external hard drive out of the G4. Put it in a $30 external enclosure and keep using it with your other Mac(s)
