Need to find a way to image hard drives in my PPC 7200/75, 7600/132 and 7600/200. SCSI port is the problem. Apple Geniuses told me I would not be successful connecting SCSI to USB 1.1 on my iMac G4 flatscreen (vintage 2002). The only solice I have is a working OS9.0 bootdisk. No system disks, originals I mean. Could I make an image, or a duplicate system on an external device by going SCSI to SCSI??? That way, when the HDDs eventually crash I have a fully functioning HDD to replace it.

I need these machines to function or I am USC/woP. This is a very serious issue for me so all suggestions appreciated.

Can I even still buy compatible new HDDs for these machines?
