Re: Installing More Than 128 GB Internal Hard Drive in a G4

So I guess I'm going to get rid of the 500 GB. I might not need that much space anyway. Does a hard drive exist that is somewhere between 80GB and 120 GB?

Re: Installing More Than 128 GB Internal Hard Drive in a G4

When you connected your new drive to the pci card, did you initialize it with Disk Utility? If not, please try this. Some cards don't work well with drives that have been initialized elsewhere.

Re: Installing More Than 128 GB Internal Hard Drive in a G4

I have the PCI hard drive controller for it, which is why I am a bit confused. I thought that was all I needed for it to work properly.

Re: Installing More Than 128 GB Internal Hard Drive in a G4

So I recently installed a new hard drive in my Powermac G4. I figured everything was cool since I saw the hard drive icon on my desktop and could put data onto it. However, when I open up programs, such as ProTools, the multi-colored pinwheel icon pops up and stays that way forever. I get the same t...

Re: Installing More Than 128 GB Internal Hard Drive in a G4

SO say I do get a PCI SATA card and a 500 GB SATA hard drive.

All 500 GB will be recognized and I will be able to utilize all 500 GB?

Installing More Than 128 GB Internal Hard Drive in a G4

I'm wondering if anyone has installed an internal hard drive that is larger than 128 GB on their G4 (AGP Graphics) without any problems. Can it in fact be done?

Thanks
