    I have an eMac G4/1.42 with 1 GB RAM
    This machine supports 184-pin PC2700 (333 MHz) DDR SDRAM.
    I have two sticks of 1 GB RAM of 400 MHz PC3200 DDR SDRAM from my defective Dual G5 1.8. Does this RAM work in the eMac?
    TIA

    That RAM should work in an eMac. If only have the amount is seen, then it is high density ram. It'll still work, just only half of it will.

    Wouldn't it be backwards compatible with PC2700 ram?

    Yes, PC3200 should work in it. But there are a few Macs that refuse to work with higher clocked ram.
