How can I make a G4 Sawtooth recognize a 500GB IDE HD?

Is there a way to make a G4 Sawtooth -to - Digital Audio, recognize a 500GB hard drive without partitioning it into two?

Without having an external enclosure for the drive?

Can you explain more fully what you are trying to do here.

What is the hard drive (make and model) as well as the OS you are running on your system.

Sawtooth is the internal Apple project name, are you trying to export digital audio?

I'm sorry I'm thinking everyone is a mind reader.. OS9.2 G4 sawtooth 1.5G ram. I have 1 230GB HD with the OS but when I try to add the drive inside the machine it says drive too big, When it is in a USB It formats and works quite nicely... Not sure what the deal is.

Looks like I need to find me an ATA 66 PCI card... Saw one for $100 on eBay.. bah too much.

Go for a MDD G4, it has both the ATA 100 and the 66
