@telmoleal looks like people that have done this are using drives like a Kingspec KSD-PA25.1-032ms Storage capacity of the drive may be an issue and it looks like you can get them on here I cannot vouch for the quality of this part since I never purchased it or from this seller. Just an option for you to look at.

Here is some interesting read as well.

I found that one too and for the price is worth the try. Thank you so much for the help. I'm gonna read that thread carefully.


@telmoleal Once you do the "conversion", come back and let us know how it works and if it was a worthwhile thing to do. I am a strong believer in keeping the "old stuff" working for as long as possible.


I'll keep that in mind. I believe in keeping the old stuff live their entire life too but at the same time I can't help myself when I find a way to improve something. I've picked the ibook g3 for a classic gaming station and a "typewriter". The noise of the hd is an obstacle for this last one


@telmoleal absolutely. Repurposing, fixing and modifying devices to prolong their useability, is what this site is all about. Anybody can buy new stuff and spend tons of money, I am frugal.

Boy, had to dust off my old note pad for its notes.

This system uses the older Ultra PATA interface so it will be hard to find a SSD as not many where made back then and the tech at the time wasn’t as good as today.

This is also not a very fast interface so you won’t gain much over a standard plater HD drive. Here’s the guide to get to it as it’s also not easy! iBook G3 12" Hard Drive Replacement

There's that should work. It's worth the try. My goal is to reduce noise and heat. Performance is not a key issue, just a bonus. Having a good time knowing the inside of a two decades old machine is also a plus.
