View Full Version : IDE HD Power connection in Mac 8500?

12-19-2001, 12:01 AM
As soon as a UPS shipment arrives I will be installing an ATA/100 Sonnet card & IDE 60 gig hard disk in a Mac 8500. What will I find when I pull off the cover? Will I find an available power harness? Will I find a bay with a tray to hold the drive? Where can I get the harness and tray and any other parts that I might need?

Heck, pop the top and find out. You should find an availiable bay and a power connector, depends on what was done to the computer before.

Lots of parts resellers such as icni.com that will sell you a sled for the drive if it's missing.
