My Verbatim 320GB portable drive will not work with my iBook G4

The drive just spins and flashes a blue light but never shows up on the desktop. I tried it on my newer Macbook and it showed up immediately so that I don't think it's the HD. The iBook is running OS 10.4.11.

Called Verbatim support and they said it is a power issue. They will send you a USB Y cable to get power from both USB ports. Hope it works.

My Verbatim suddenly stopped working on my Mac OS


It sounds like your hard drive is damaged. Hard drives are very, very dilicate pieces of machinary. The disk is paper thin and any sudden jarring, especially dropping it creates a warp in the drive. It could also be just a mechanical failure. Unplug it to prevent further damage. Don't worry in many cases you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

CD drive + Flash drive not detected


Some of the iBook G4 optical drives are very sensitive. The best way to test if it is still working is to use the System Disks that comes with every Mac.
Regarding the Flash disk, it may be that your iBook is using USB 1.1 protocol, while your Flash is using USB 2.0. You can check what type of USB your iBook has in the System Profiler. If it is 1.1, then you are out of luck. If its USB 2.0, then you have a faulty logic board.
Either way, not good news for you. Sorry.
