    The title is cut off, so we cannot see exactly what cable you are looking for.

Install an Airport card in a G4 Tower



There are six models of Power Mac G4 computers: AGP Graphics, PCI Graphics, Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio, QuickSilver, and QuickSilver 2002. You cannot install an AirPort card in the Power Mac G4 (PCI Graphics); the rest accept original version 1 Apple Airport cards. The card is simply inserted through an opening in the PCI card guide and seats itself into a socket on the logic board. Then you attach the loose antenna cable to the hole on the end of the Airport Card. You're done.

What have you tried so far to fix this problem?

I'd start with using Disk Utility, try using the repair permissions function, and also the other scan, I forget what it's called ( I'm mostly a pc / linux user)

That should fix the problem, but if it doesn't let me know and I'll give you some other suggestions.

Let me know what happens.

Need digital audio cable.


are you saying you want to use the optical out feature?
simple way would be to just use an adapter and then a standard optical cable. http://www.amazon.com/Toslink-To-Optical-Mini-Adapter/dp/B0002MQGRM
is an example of one
another option is

Network a G4 (OS 9) to a eMac (OS X)


OK - first, crossover cables let you network PCs together without a switch or router. I would strongly recommend returning the crossover cable and buying a router so that you can use both computers on the internet at the same time.

Second, the eMac monitor can not directly be used as a monitor for your G4 - it's not built that way. However, you can use Screen Sharing on OS X (if both have Leopard) or Apple Remote Desktop software (if you buy it) to remote control the G4 using the eMac.

You will DEFINITELY need a monitor on the G4 in order to set it up at all, so I hope you have that.

Keep in mind that you can buy, for less than $200, an LCD screen that is larger and better quality than the eMac, and it would leave the eMac useful as a second computer. Since the eMac is unlikely to work at all with Leopard, and you'd have to buy Apple Remote Desktop, you're going to spend less money by buying a separate screen for the G4.

My imac g4 isn't reading the dvd/cd drive at all


it won't read it because the new os disk is double layered and the g4 drive you have probably won't read double layered dvds.  best solution is to buy or borrow an usb external dvd drive.  i did this last week and it worked fine.

It;'s not a great Idea flipping the mac over they have a special stand to put them on when working on them. But it should be able to cope with it. Your mac is relatively old now. With all the moving around it could have just given up the ghost.

They are quite tricky to work on with the hard drive sitting on top and the cables running over and down the side there is a stack of heat generated there. Just make sure you put ll the thermal back in. If it's not a miss seated connection it could be a number of things. Cable, heads. Trouble shooting is quite tricky. As it is a desktop, in a lot of cases it is cheaper to buy an external DVD reader/writer. They are faster now!

You should be able to install OK when it is in terminal mode. You could run disk utility but more than likely you'll have to run the installation again.

Sorry, not much help.
