Hello, I have just been doing some switching of programs and what not, from my computer and my dads, I had take out and switch HD's because my ipod is not mounting :mad:. Now, my dad has all the programs he needs, and 2 HD's, but i only have one....my second HD is located in the zip bay, because i have a blue and white, and i've heard if you put two HD's in the actual bay, you will get corruption, it has been a lot of trouble to take out the zip bay and continuously put the HD back in, the jumpers are set to slave, i just can't get it to mount, it might be because the power cords aren't all the way in... but i've checked them over, and it is such a pain to open the zip bay and get my hands in behind the optical drive!!!

the jumpers are set to slave,
...I don't know about your machine, but the PowerMac G4s all seem to require that the drive jumpers be set to Cable Select (CS). So this could be your issue.
