original drive is very loud. PT4 only supprts 176 gb. so a 160gb IDE drive from around 2006 will be perfect.

Thank you I will try that. A lot of people you external firewire drive enclosures but I don't know which one works with Os9.
Any recommendations?

I'm mostly using drives from OWC... have a bunch of LaCie, Glyph and lately Guardian Maximus Minis that I Like.

I swapped the boot drive with ssd own. works great. got OWC and Avastor FW 400 externals cheap and seems very good.

miss the SCSI cheetah 10K though :-) they seem better but louder. Did make room for a new farm card though in place of the Atto card I pulled out....:)

Still have a few scsi items on my G4 400mhz rig but doesn't get used that much these days. I work mainly with audio and don't even have a midi interface on my main rig. Using an expansion chassis with 7 mix cards and can do a reasonably large session before it starts to choke and I have have to jump through various hoops. ;D
