If you used it on a PC you need to format it to a MAC. You can do this by going to disk utility and erasing it.

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

You will have burnt out the electric side of the external drive and possibley damaged the harddrive.

Your best soultion would be to buy a hdd caddy and remove the hardrive from the enclosure it is in and place it into the new caddy, plug it into the pc and see if you can still use it and see and recover your files.

If the above does not work. There is a chance you have damaged the drive as well and depending on you level of computer know how you can rebuild a hdd i came give you full details but it is a very complex process and has to be done in a sealed enviroment which is dust free.

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.

I'm sorry to say if you have already tried to get one off of the manufacturers website then you will not be able to get one that fits into the caddy. It's a propriatary USB-SATA/IDE addapter. Do what I did and take it out of the caddy and install it in the PC.
