I think this article may explain it. You may need to break up your external drive in to 200 GB chunks so you can see all of the space: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86178

Sims 3 wont install onto my powerbook G4

Sims 3 will not run on a mac that isn't using an Intel based processor. You will have to upgrade from a Power-PC processor in order to use the latest version of sims.

Reset_To_Factory_Setting on mac ibook g4

Justin I suppose the easiest way to do this would be to insert your system disk into your ibook boot it up holding down the c key on your keyboard and then instal a fresh system. Use the erase and instal option as this will erase your hard drive. Any other queries get back to me, hope this helps. By the way a step by step way of doing this can be found at http://macs.about.com/od/leopard105/ss/installleopard.htm although it's leopard it should be similar across system.

My G4 see the drive but it thinks it is a 120 GB drive when it is really a 500 GB drive. How do I get the G4 to recognize the 500 GB drive as a 500 GB drive and not as a 120 GB drive? Jim

The drive may not be formatted to correctly to work with a Mac as most are pre-formatted for PC use.
Use the Disc Utility on your Mac application to format your drive as Mac OS Extended.
Use the Zero out data option for best results, this may take an hour or two. It's in he Erase section.

Uploading video from sc-d353 camera to Mac

Final Cut may not sync with the Camcorder. I assume you're running firewire into the g4. Try capture as an analog device.

My mac G4 not recognize my 500GB external FantomDrive. HD light is on but Mac can't see it!

If you bought it from a friend, then ask them to reformat it for you as a FAT32 partition. Mac can not see NTFS, which most Windows users use since you get more space on the drive.

If it is brand new and your G4 isn't recognizing it, then I would return it for a new one. I don't trust things that aren't working out of the box, especially when they charge so much for things.

I've just bought one of these for a Mac G4 running

You need to locate a piece of software called Patchburn - but I think that might be difficult now.
This particular vintage mac only worked with the drive that was in it. in order to use a different drive you had to patch the system so that the new drive would be recognised as a burner - that said, it should just work as a player/CD-ROM.
The later Macs didn't have this problem and you could stick a drive in and it would be recognised straight away as a burner. I recently put a LG drive (with lightscribe) into a G5 mac and it worked straight away as a burner/player but I did have to install the lightscribe software.

G4 Power Mac not seeing the external drive

Yup, I'm afraid the only known solution is to return to an earlier version of the opertating system. I suspect that if you recall - the item disappeared after a security update. Shame eh! Robin
