What SSD are you using? What speeds is it currently running at? Why would you need a controller for a 1TB HDD?

I have a Digital Audio G4 running 10.5.8 and I may be interested in switching over to SATA for the optical drive (just because, really). Do you know of any compatible PCI cards that use the ATAPI command set for doing that (and maybe at least an extra channel or three so that I don't have to use an entire PCI slot just for optical SATA), or are there otherwise any viable options? I've looked online pretty extensively before and couldn't find much of anything that wasn't too expensive to make it worth doing.

Even on the inside their boards are very similar. But, the mounting holes are not the same, the heatsinks don't line up, the internal connectors are different and on different parts of the logicboard.

PCI SATA cards aren't really within my realm of knowledge. For that you'd want 666sheep. But just remember, that any SATA optical drive would be a waste of resources as optical drives don't even max out a ATA/66 bus.

Ok thanks. I kind of figured as much, hence the "just because" comment. I just thought, I've been running all my internal drives off PCI for years now, why not go ahead and get the last one off the ATA bus?

Okay great! So then my question is, is there a PCI SATA card with ATAPI support and more than one channel (2 would be good, more than 2 would be better!) that is G4 Digital Audio/10.5.8 compatible?

Fair enough. Please, nobody answer my PCI SATA ATAPI question in this thread. I will start a new one. Thanks!

I have exactly same one as yours, but it won't boot. What is your rom version, or did you do something specifically like driver installation besides putting the card in slot and connecting SSD? Thank you in advance.
