Internal SCSI to Firewire?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I have an internal SCSI Yamaha CDRW I used on my old Beige G3.

Now I have a B&W G3 and would like to add this CDRW to it.

Can I add the internal CDRW to the B&W G3? (Wouldn't like to give up the DVD ROM)

Is there some kind of gizmo that will allow me to connect the SCSI CDRW to the internal Firewire port or is my only choice a SCSI card (not a bad one, but I wouldn't like to use a PCI slot for it)?

If not, is there some kind of... enclosure to put the internal CDRW and then use it externally via Firewire?

Should I just toss the CDRW to the trash and buy a new one?

    The front of a B&W G3 has 2 drive bays right? There are firewire to SCSI adapters that you get. Buy a small circuit board type, (they cost less without the $50 plastic case <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" /> ) and put it inside your tower. But a SCSI card may be cheaper still.

    Edit- As with enclosures, yea. Many companies sell them. Hold on finding Weblink... <a href=""; target="_blank">Granite Digital</a> Have fun! :cool:
