Maxtor ATA/133 PCI Card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm going to buy the Maxtor 80GB 7200 RPM HD for 129 from Best Buy and it comes with the ATA/133 card for free. Will the card work in the mac at all?

Well, I wasn't going to write an essay. It won't work, you *should* be able to buy a PC version of the SIIG ATA/133 card for around $40-50 instead of the typical $100 and flash it with the Acard mac firmware. I got it to work in OS X, but it hung my QS 2002 in OS 9's boot sequence...didn't even get a sad Mac.

If you want a foolproof ATA/133 solution you're probably going to have to shell out the cash for the Mac version of a particular brand of ATA/133 PCI card.
