  • To remove the hard drives from the cages, remove the four screws on the sides of the cage that are connected to the drives, than slide the drives out.

  • The two cages are cross compatible and can be put in either rack.

  • The MDD does not have a 128GB drive limit like older macs, My MDD has 3 Drives (A 400GB Hitatchi Deskstar, 40GB Seagate Baracuda 7200.7, and a 30GB Quantum Fireball LCT).

  • Note the ID jumpers on the two drive set. One is set to Master, the other to slave. A single drive can be set to Cable Select.

Thanks - excellent tutorial!

Question: If you have a single internal drive, and a connected extrenal drive via firewire or usb, what jumper setting should be set for the internal drive and the external drive? Booting into Mac OS 9 natively (not via Classic) on the internal drive seems to be sensitive to the jumper settings and I’m having issues getting it to work.
