It doesn't look like this drive is supported for Mac use. Only DOS drivers are provided and owners manual didn't indicate it. I found the support section for an hm160jc which should be the correct model number for your hard drive according to Samsungs support website. If you have any additional questions you should contact Samsungs support website. Here is a link to the support area for your hard drive:

Where to buy used mac notebook parts


ebay can be a good place. powerbookmedic.com is a pretty good place too. they have new and used parts (used parts aren't always available, however on a laptop this old, i would assume they have some) and also have videos and PDF files on step by step disassembly. I have found it to be a pretty good resource for apple repair. hope this helps:)

I have a powerbook G4 and just purchased a Seagate 500 GB external hard drive and i can not drag and drop do i need to format something or what ?


Yes.
You should use the Disc Utility in Macintosh >Hard Drive> Applications>Utilities>Disc Utility to format the new externql to Mac OS Extended Journalrd or non-Journaled is fine.
For video applications I prefer non-Journaled.

Select the drive on the left side of the window to highlight it.
Select the Erase tab. (Top of window)
Select VolumeFormat: and Name:
In Secutity options select Zero Out Data, hit Erase (middle of window) and wait for formatting to complete.
Could be an hour or two depending on disc size.

I am trying to switch on my g4 notebook. And am presented with a folder icon bearing alternately a finder icon and ? Any ideas?


Your mac cannot find an operating system. Re-install the operating system using the 2 discs Apple gave you. If that don't work, then you need a new hard drive. 2.5" 120 GB laptop hard drive IDE/ATA are the specs you need. If it says SATA, then you got the wrong hard drive.

Why my powerbook G4 can not find my Samsung mp3 player and printer Samsung ML-1610. Both have USB connection. It can find everything else.


Samsung ML-1610 is a Windows only printer, but...you CAN get it to work.

Download a driver for the Samsung ML-1740 printer. You can get that here ---> http://boulter.com/downloads/samsung/20040507135703687_SPL_V2.5.sit

That should fix your issue.

As for your MP3 player...I don't have a good answer for you. Sorry

Need Mac G4 laptop schematic manuel


Not sure if you want an actual circuitry schematic, or a internal parts guide.

A manual for field-replacing just about every component inside your Powerbook can be found here.

I expect that circuitry schematics are much harder to come by, and are actually likely to be protected by trade secrets.
