    I own a G4 867 Quicksilver (not the chrome door model). There are what seem to be 2 doors on the front of it but I think I remember reading somewhere that the bottom door/bay cannot actually be used to house a second CD/DVD drive? is this the case?

    if not what the hell is it for then? to look good?

    thanks :confused:

    A quick Google found the lowendmac page on the Quicksilver.

    While it doesn't specify what it's for, the specs say a internal Zip 250 can be installed.. I'm guessing that's what the second door's for. Hope that helps.

    zap23 is right, the second bay is meant for a 3.5" drive, such as a Zip drive or another internal hard drive. I have, however, seen people modify the case to fit a 5.25", such as a second optical drive. I don't remember where I saw it, but the modification did permanently alter the case, although it did look quite good.
