the i.e. Performa 580/6xx/6xxx series of Macs were the first to use IDE drives, correct? I was wondering, can I replace the original Apple-branded IDE drive with any other or does it have to be an Apple-brand drive as well (i.e. non-Apple SCSI drives can be used with a modified version of Apple Hard Disk Utility)?
Also, how does the data throughput in comparison to the onboard SCSI measure up; what I mean, is the SCSI interface still faster than the IDE, slower, or is it equal? I've modified the internal SCSI connector to use with the SCSI disk that I already had, therefore I don't know about actually using IDE drives. Hope there's someone that can answer my question. Cheers
