    PC Compatibility Card - PM 4400 PCI slot 1 or 2

    The only thing I was able to find was this picture from a past sale cached on WorthPoint (Looks like an Old StarMax)  I doubt I will ever track one of these 3-Slot Risers down unless I get a whole StarMax and at that point, one has to ask... is it worth it all this effort?

    I ran the tree command via homebrew:  Some things came up as weird text under 10.12 but that might be due to API changes and lack of support. When I used a 10.6.8 VM; the disc came up fine with no garbled files, and imaged okay as a .cdr file via Disk Utility as shown below.
