Anyone know if it's possible? I've read about people doing it with the 3400 without modification.

No, no NuBus PowerBook can accept CardBus cards. And that second statement is also false, you have to modify either the card or the PowerBook to get CardBus cards to work in a 3400c.

Here's an example I found of Cardbus cards working on 3400s with no modification:

If you read to the bottom of that page you'll see my name mentioned.



The site that is linked right after my name has changed, and is now located here: http://www.danpalka.net/hooper/



You have to physically modify the cards with a knife or razor for them to work. And even once you do, it is very unreliable.



And no... no USB on a 1400. Especially not with OS 7.

The PowerBook 2400c is capable of 32bit cardbus. MCE can do the modification for $100. To take advatnage of USB and Firewire cards you have to upgrade to Mac OS 8.6,



Maybe Dan Palka can tell us if it is at all capable to use (USB) with OS 7.6.1



I think the standard then was the SCSI bus for Scanners and Hard Drives, CD roms drives.



HeadGap still sells a scanner that works with OS 7 that has a SCSI interface.
