If you mean format a 500 GB drive attached to the G4's internal bus, no. You must have a third party controller PCI card that supports large drives.

Finally got around to trying this and yes it works just fine to partition into 4 seperate drives without changing the PCI card.spectorbassguy wrote:So can I take a 500 GB EIDE HD and format it into (4) 125 GB HD's and use it that way without changing the PCI card?
