I use last years iMac with Snow Leopard but will upgrade to ML soon.
I have two internal 1TB WD Black HDD's in Rosewill enclosures on my desk. I need another 2TB HDD or two 1TB's. I would rather not have additional individual enclosures cluttering up my desk.
My old G4 is gathering dust in a closet. I kept it because I like the lucite look. I'd like to use it as a box to house the HDD's.
1. Would the existing G4 bays be capable of handling current TB HDD's? What would I need to do to create that ability?
2. I would like to gut the box somewhat just to house the WD HDDs (in enclosures) to get them off my desk ( as well as using the existing bays for additional HDD's) and run cables (cable??) from the enclosures to my iMac. What problems would I have in accomplishing that feat?
3. Is it possible to add more bays and not use the enclosures?
Is there really a way to accomplish this, or am I too computer illiterate to realize it can't be done?
Any suggestions would be gladly accepted. Thanks.
