Easily boot from USB 2.0 drives on PowerPC Macs
Authored by: spacebaby on Oct 01, '07 05:00:23PM

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the hint. I have two problems which I need your help on. I'm 3 days old using Mac. I have an iBook G3 600Mhz/384MB dual USB running on OSX 10.1.5. I'm looking into upgrading to Tiger or Panther as 10.1.5 is very annoying (as you know, I'm sure). How do you managed to install Tiger without the CD? Did you copied from your old hard drive? or you ripped the image off a CD?
Another problem is the USB drive, it doesn't seem to detect anything I put into it. I have a USB external hard disk, a Sandisk Ultra II USB plus SD card and Belkin 54G wireless dongle. When I plugged in the external drive or the SD card via USB, I get an error saying something like "there are no readable volumes" and prompted me to repair or initialize it. but when I did, nothing happens.

What should I do? Please help as I can't afford to buy another Windblows laptop.
Many thanks in advance!!!
