For those who need it, there is a program called SpeedTools that can enable larger than 128 GB drives on standard ATA-66/100. OWC has it on sale here (http://eshop.macsales.com/Item_MailList.cfm?ID=7108&Item=OWCSPEEDHCCD), but you have to buy a large drive from them. If I would have known, I'd have gotten that used Cube when I had the chance. Not sure how well it works, but Accelerate You Mac (http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/) had some info on it. If any one has any experiance with it, please let us know. Thanks.

(BTW... no, I don't work for either site. It's just a newer version and I've never seen it this cheap.)

sounds nifty, though I'd probably would like an ATA card because if I had a drive larger than 128GB on my ATA33 in my B&W, I'd want faster transfre speeds as well.

I don't actually think it works on ATA/33. This would be more for older iMacs, eMacs, Cubes, etc. where an IDE card isn't an option.
