Mount un-mountable external Firewire drives
Authored by: avanham on Feb 06, '04 01:56:39PM

As I understand it, replacing the hard drive in a powerbook is way easier than what I had to do for my iBook because you can't easily remove the bottom cover of the ibook. Here are some instructions on the apple site for replacing the hard drive in a G4 PB

I am 99.9% certain that the powerbook and ibook use the same hard drive. You can see what is available at devdepot.com, but basically you need a 2.5" hard drive that is no higher than 9.5mm. The Hitatchi Travelstar series definitely works in the iBook so I assume it will also work in the Powerbook.

I don't sit the computer on my lap, so I am not sure if it runs any hotter, but I doubt it.
