I HAVE AN APPLE POWERBOOK G4 I PURCHASE FROM EBAY IT IS CURRENTLY RUNNING MAC OS 9 ,HOW CAN I UPGRADE TO OSX 10 ?


Hi Bobby
You will need to get an OS X installation DVD. Try eBay.Don't go for anything lower than 10.4 (Tiger)10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) should run fine on this machine.Don't bother with 10.7 or 10.8

Want to free up space on my internal hard drive (Apple PowerBook G4) without


Mac do not waste space, I recommend you to use an external hard drive. Try to find one with twice capacity that your computer's hard drive.I mean, if your computer hard drive is 500Gb, then find an external drive with 1Tb

How do i back up a power book g4? What application do I need to do the back up?


Suchisart,
If you want a stand alone backup solution, you can download a free program called "Carbon Copy Cloner" and purchase a USB 2.0 external hard drive. You can use the CCC software to backup the entire contents of your Powerbook's hard drive or just selected files to the external USB hard drive.

If your Powerbook is unable to boot into OS X and you need to recover the files that are on the internal hard drive, you can boot the Powerbook into "Target Disk Mode" and transfer the files via firewire cable to another Mac. To do this do the following.
  1. With both Macs off connect them with a firewire cable.
  2. Turn on the Powerbook and hold down the "T" during startup.
  3. Once the large icon shows up on screen your in "TDM".
  4. Turn on the other Mac and login to your account.
  5. The Powerbook's hard drive should mount on your desktop.
  6. You'll be able to transfer your files from the Powerbook's hard drive just like you would an external hard drive, thumb drive, etc.

Cant install so 10.2 onto powerbook g4.


Remove both RAM chips and re-insert, because sometimes they come loose. Now give it a shot old chap. Also, your RAM chips may have died, so insert new ones and give it a shot.

Don't install Panther 10.2, because that operating system (OS) is too old. The PowerBook runs best with the Tiger 10.4 OS. You need to install a retail version disc with black label instead of a gray label disc, because those discs are computer specific to certain models only.

Cheers

I picked up a Powerbook G4 12' Aluminum guesing 1.5 from a local college that was going to trash it, and when I press the power button the start up chime rings and turns straight to a blinking ?/Mac OS...


Get the gray OS discs specific for the PowerBook. Your iBook gray discs won't work. You can also install the OS by getting a black label retail version disc of whatever cat you like- Panther or Tiger. If the software installs, but you hear noises or get the spinning beach ball of death, then the hard drive is fu.k.d up. You then have to open up the computer and install a new hard drive and re-install the OS. Good luck old chap. Cheers.

Restore CD


You don't need a "restore" cd.

You can just use any copy of Tiger.

Borrow one!

PowerBook G4 does not seem to recognize. (Worked well on previous Apple lap top)


If your Firelite SmartDisk was formatted for a PC, and you are using the Mac side of the G4 it won't. They use a different format scheme. Need to load Parallel, bootcamp, or another virtual PC program, and then Windows. Using that it will recognize it.

If you know another Mac user that is using both sides (Mac and Virtual PC) is a quick way to retrieve data to move it. Be careful reformatting the FireLite. There are some more complex ways. Hope that this helps.

PS: I use a 160GB FireLite on my G4, MacBook Pro as well as my Tower and notebook PCs.

WD Passport Essential 160gb with PowerBook G4


The problem is that your powerbook G4 does not provide enough power to your 160gb passport HD. This does not happens to the new Macs with intel inside.
There are several ways to fix it:
1) Go to West Digital Website and buy a "Power Buster Cable USB" (that connect your 2 USB ports to your passport HD in order to provide more power). I think that it costs 10$. This is the link: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/accessories.asp?ProdID=170
2) The other solution is easier. If you have an external USB hard drive with two USB ports, or a DVD/CD burner with two usb ports, you can pug your passport in one of the ports while the other HD or DVD/CD burner is connected to you PowerBook. You will be able to see and use your q60gb Passport HD.
