So I've got an older Macbook with a broken optical drive (it takes heroic measures to get it to eject discs), and I'm trying to figure out the best way to replace it. [more inside]
Mac, Leopard, La Cie external hard disk drive spins but does not mount. What's my best option for getting data off this drive? [more inside]
I've got a hard drive out of my old G3 Blue and white that, for unrelated reasons, ain't workin right now. I've also got a G4 Ibook, and recently I've determined that I need some files from that hard drive. Is there any sort of adapter kit or cable set or something that would let me hook up the old G3 drive to my Ibook and access the files stored on it?
I hate to use AskMe for tech support like this but this has me scratching my head. Ok this is the set up...G4 (AGP) has the stock drive(20GB) and a Maxtor 150Gb drive on a Sonnet PCI ATA/100 card. Sporadically, and I emphisise that word, the big drive will either not be recognized at all or not mount because the drive shows up as having 0 Bytes as the drive size. What is the cause? --> [more inside]
