Is this graphics card supposed to be not compatible with my G4? I thought it would work.
Sounds like a lot of work I'm not willing to do.
Holy crap! There's no way I'm doing all that. I'll be fine with the graphics card I have for now. The graphics card that I wanted to work on the G4 is supposed to work on it though. I just need to do all that taping and desoldering.
I just thought the Sawtooth model G4 didn't need to have the taping done to the graphics card.
Most of the people you will meet here are enthusiast and were not afraid to the things that you deem involves a lot of work.
Where is the ADC socket located? I tried googling this and I couldn't find any results.I don't do the tape method. I use nail polish to cover the pins. You do have to tape to keep the polish from getting on the other pins.
You should try the tape method. Worst case scenario it doesn't work and you peel the tape off. best case, you get it to work and have a rockin' GFX.
If yours has the ADC socket then you need to tape. Pre-ADC sawtooth does not need taping.

It is in front of the AGP socket. Check out this link:
The black thing below the green/brown AGP is the ADP socket.
If you don't have that black thing then you have a pre-ADP sawtooth. It shod work without taping.
