"Just an update. I've moved most of my old Macs to a solid state drive of some type. SCSI2SD, CF to ATA, SD to IDE or ATA, and true ATA SSDs, just to name a few."

"Hey all!I bought the KingSpec 64 GB PATA SSD from Amazon. It works great. I'm sure OWC's SSDs are better, but I can say the difference on my old PowerBook G3 "Pismo" really helped it. The Finder is now usable, and the over all…"

"Hi, did you ever get the SSD to work? I'm tempted to buy one on ebay for my Powerbook G3. I don't want to pay for the OWC Legacy Pro as the smallest one they have in stock is $150, way too much for this machine. I'd only need 32-40…"

Paul Brown replied to Sebastian P.'s discussion SSD for PowerBook G4?
"Sebastian,  The PowerBook G4 uses an ATA hard drive, which is very different from SATA (Serial ATA) hard drives commonly used today. So you will need to find a ATA SSD drive, sometimes referred to as IDE or PATA (Parallel ATA). The ATA drives…"

SSD for PowerBook G4?

Hi all,my beloved PowerBook G4 is getting older and older but it still fits my needs perfectly. I love it especially for the ability to boot OS9 / OSX and running Tiger 10.4 more than decent. (it is a 800 MHz TiBook with 1 Gig of RAM) Anyway, still I'd love to replace the internal HDD with an SSD. It still has the original 40 GB HDD inside from 2002. Yeah, that's like 10 years and when thinking about it I get a bit nervous ;-) I'm saving my data to an external HDD but still, I'd like to replace…See More
