I’ve done this on a 520 PPC long ago, if I remember correctly it was with a |
1GB 16MB/s Compact Flash card and I loved it!
It was running 7.6.
I bought a more expensive card (with a slightly different architecture; I
forget the name) to avoid fast wear and tear.
The article mentions NAND type CF cards as the better type, and current
cards doing "wear leveling" which seems critical for IDE/ATA use.
16 MB/s is now quite slow, but it’s almost as fast as the system bus in the
520, so more than 25 MB/s doesn’t make sense. More than a few GB doesn’t,
The only "problem" was that the keyboard is resting partially on the HD and
the adapter module didn’t quite do the same thing; otherwise it was a
breeze with Apple’s take-apart guide. Some fumbling with the IDE cable and
that was it.
