Is there a way to adapt older PCI cards to newer comps?

    So I'm trying to put my old ProTools HD system in a new computer and the PCI card slots are different. I was wondering if there was any sort of adaptor or work around to get the cards to work in the newer mac. The computers are-
    Power Mac G4 trying to put the protools system into a PowerMac G5 quad.

    Obviously this is so I can have protools on the newer machine without having to buy new $10,000 PCI cards, thanks so much!

    There's an upgrade path from the pci to pcie.


    Otherwise, you might want to search for an external pci box:


    Not sure if that will work with the HD cards though.
