  1. The Power Mac G4 MDD: the last, and the fastest G4-based Mac.  This computer boasted up to a Dual 1.42GHz PowerPC G4 CPU (though I have a single 1.25GHz).
    • The Power Mac G4 MDD: the last, and the fastest G4-based Mac. This computer boasted up to a Dual 1.42GHz PowerPC G4 CPU (though I have a single 1.25GHz).

    • Six USB ports.

    • Four FireWire ports.

    • Assorted SCSI (SCSI50/SCSI68)

    • Assorted Audio

    • Video (ADC & DVI)

    • Networking (RJ-45 Ethernet/56k Modem)

    • Some later model MDD's (such as the dual 1.42GHz) Have a FireWire 800 Port Here:

  2. Pull on the side lever and lower the side of the case.
    • Pull on the side lever and lower the side of the case.

    • The hard drive cages are located here.

    • Cage 1

    • Start by removing this screw.

    • Remove the ATA-66/ IDE ribbon cable from the motherboard.

    • Now, remove the power connection from the drives.

    • Push this tab down, and pull the cage toward you.

    • Now, you can set cage 1 aside.

    • Cage 2:

    • Remove this Phillips screw:

    • Disconnect this IDE ribbon cable from the logic board.

    • It's likely that there is a cable clip holding the ribbon cable to the case.

    • To remove it, push the end, and it should pop up.

    • With the ribbon cable clip free, pull this tab towards you, slide the cage up until it hits the platform under the power supply, and pull it away.

    • Now, set the cage on top of the CPU, and remove the power connectors.

    • Once the cables are free, set the drive cage aside.

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

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

    • The MDD does not have a 128GB drive limit like older Macs. My MDD has 3 drives (a 400GB Hitatchi Deskstar, 40GB Seagate Barracuda 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.
