PowerPC :: Accessing IBook Drive In External Case

Jun 9, 2007

So a friends girlfriend tossed, as in threw, her older ibook g4. You ask why? Well she was mad at it so she punched the screen and it cracked, so she gave it a quick toss because the screen cracked. So I get to be the one to try to salvage the harddrive. I have the ibook torn apart, my macbook, a macmini and an external usb IDE harddrive enclosure at my disposal.

So I tried to target it through my macbook by holding down T and booting up the ibook. Hard drive clicks and spins, but nothing mounts on my macbook. So I bought an external USB for the ibook harddrive. My macbook won't see it when connected. So does this mean a bad drive? Do the older drives have to be connected by firewire?

PowerPC :: Does PB 15.4 Aluminum Case Is Exchangeable With The MBP 15.4 Case

Oct 18, 2007

Does anyone know if the PB 15.4 Aluminum case is exchangeable with the Macbook Pro 15.4 case? I have a 1.6Ghz Powerbook which has a few dents in the front but I don't see any of these cases for sale on Ebay, but I do see Macbook Pro cases. It's really a nasty cosmetic issue I'd like to resolve and then sell it.

MacBook Air :: Finding Excellent 11" Case

Jan 4, 2011

I've been using this case from Brenthaven. It's only $25 and fits the 11" MBA, protects it very well, has a shoulder strap as an extra option and has an outside pocket for charger, etc.

[URL]

They now list it for an iPad but when I bought it it was under 11" PC cases. I guess they thought it would sell better listed as an iPad case rather than a netbook case. It uses their CORE system, so you could dsrop this from five feet without damaging your MBA. Good value for only $25.

Windows On Mac :: Finding HDD Case For A Seagate 7200?

Mar 31, 2009

I know this is a long shot for the MR forums, but here goes:

I have my old HD from my Dell POS E510. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 (SATA). THe problem is that it doesn't fit in the two hard drive cases I currently have, so I need to buy a new one.

There are several hookup configurations it seems for SATA Power/Signal and Jumper Block. How do I know which one to buy? Is there a site that matches serials numbers with case models?

MacBook Pro :: Finding Incipio Feather Case

Sep 21, 2009

I'm trying to find a review for the Incipio Feather MBP case...

they seem to be available on Amazon, there is even the occasional mention of it on here from a few months back, but there are no reviews anywhere! Have they only just been released? All I have seen is the picture of the supposed sag by the optical drive. Not good.

PowerPC :: How To Get PB Case

Jan 28, 2008

I have a Powerbook G4, 15-inch, and I need a case for it. What I really want is one like this from Incase

[URL]

Except that I need it to have handles. I could swear that at one time I saw a case by Incase at an Apple store that was just what I wanted but I was stupid and did not buy it and now cannot find it anywhere.

Basically I want as minimal of a case as possible - it need not store anything but the computer itself (such as power cords, etc.). Does anyone have any suggestions?

PowerPC :: Replacing Case On G5?

Dec 19, 2010

So recently I found a cheap powermac G5 on ebay and won the deal and all, but when the computer arrived it was horribly dented. It was packed with on piece of under a 1/2" Styrofoam. In the end I got a full refund for the computer and the seller just said that I could keep it if I want it. So I wanted the thing on my desk so I went ahead and bought another case for it. Now here's the question, has anyone done this or knows how to do this? I want to keep all of the internals inside for it not to become a month or so long project in my spare time. I am not sure on a tool that would let me get up into the edges. If you want to see some video of the unboxing of the case and at the end some footage of the dented one and how bad it is go here.

PowerPC :: How To Clean Aluminium Case On PB

Aug 22, 2007

What do you think (or use yourself) is the best thing to use to clean the Aluminium case of a PowerBook? I've got smudges in a few spots and I'm not entirely sure what to use.

I think I've heard people mention the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (the dry kind), does that work? Or does it just destroy the Aluminium?

PowerPC :: Using Old G5 Case For New Computer Assembly?

Dec 24, 2008

I have an old-ass desktop PC that I wanted to upgrade (especially a gaming machine), so I was looking through a good case. However, I really LOVE the Mac Pro/ PowerMac G5 cases. The silver one with lots and lots of holes in front And then I saw some PowerMac G5's on sale at my local authorized mac reseller, for a very nice price. it got me thinking, I can buy that PM G5, take out the innings, put it to my old desk-top case to use at home (since it's dual 1.8ghz or something like that, which should be very powerful) and use that CASING of PowerMac to build my new computer. So here's my REAL question:

1. would that be a good idea?
2. Would all the components, ATX Motherboard, a nice graphic card that's big, (thinking of GTX 260 or ATI 4870) fit inside? And also, what's the built-in power supply at?

PowerPC :: Removing Scratches In An IMac G5 Case?

Dec 23, 2010

I'm curious if anyone has a fairly surefire method to remove scuffs and scratches from an iMac G5. I picked one up from a friend for $50 that needed new caps in the power supply (check) and was pretty roughed up cosmetically. Now I've decided to keep it as a kitchen/guest computer but would like to get rid of the scratching as much as possible.

PowerPC :: Replacing Bottom Case Of IBook G3

Aug 18, 2006

I went through all the steps to change the optical drive on an old 500 MHz iBook G3, but am unable to attach the bottom case. The problem is the two long (20mm) screws near the back of the computer -- each apparently has to insert into something that looks like a gold-colored nut with serrated edges, like gears, otherwise the screws just rotate in place and don't "lock up." I'll attach a picture, but my only digital camera until I borrow one from a friend is my cell phone, so the pic won't be too good. The gold pieces fell out during the disassembly process and I can't figure out where they now go.

PowerPC :: 12" PB Monitor Case Damage?

Jul 6, 2008

Yesterday I did something stupid and accidentally flattened my powerbook while it was open. This caused the casing around the left hand side of the monitor case to separate.

The part that frames the screen itself. Do you think the whole monitor is shot or will it just be an easy and relatively simple issue to fix. The screen works fine in fact I am using it right now, I just am afraid of dirt and don't like that it looks this way.

PowerPC :: Attaching New Hinge To Case Without Damaging Anything?

Jan 1, 2009

Hi, I just acquired a PowerMac G4 500mhz that works great. However, the hinge is broken. It is on the right side (if you are sitting at the laptop). The screen casing is broken where the hinge is. There is nothing wrong with the screen, just the aluminum cases that covers it on the edges. I was able to remove the broken hinge from the computer. My problem is attaching a new hinge to the case without damaging anything.

PowerPC :: Using The IMac G4 Flat Panel LCD Case?

Jul 14, 2009

i've been searching for a way to use an iMac G4's LCD Monitor as an external monitor for any other computer. So far i haven't found a solution for it, so during my search i read that it is possible to remove the LCD display from the iMac G4's case and install another LCD display that you know for sure it will work on any other computer. So, my question is, is this possible? if so, what LCD monitor would fit in the case? i know that there's a problem when trying to pass the wires through the arm, but i think i can handle that since i already tried with some random cables, so if you know of an LCD that could fit in the case.
