I recently upgraded my Power Center 150 to a G4. I had an internal SCSI CDR drive in the PC 150 and am wondering if there is any way possible get it hooked up to my G4? Or do I have to get a USB compatible CDR drive?

You can install a PCI SCSI card with internal/external ports and connect any SCSI peripherals you have.
Same rules apply as to configurations.
Not sure that it's worth the cost for just one item.
If you also have a SCSI Jaz or scanner etc. it may be worth it.

Thanks. I checked for the price of the card and it's twice that of what the drive costs, so the decision is easy.
