Powermac g5 dual 2.0 won't boot
Ok, so i'm doing some work in after effect and all of the sudden i get this error message stating something along the lines of "hard drive not recognized".. this is from itunes.
then, as my project in ae is rendering i get a similar response.
i then have to force quit itunes, final cut and after efects because they're not responding.
i then try and put something from the desktop into the trash and i get this ticking noise coming from my hard drive and the circle of **** comes up and the whole computer isn't responding.. that stops and i go to restart.. the same tick re-occurs and im forced to hold down the power button to shut it down.
i then boot the system back up and it comes to the grey apple screen and just sits there with the apple logo and the little spin thing underneath.
IS this a bad hard drive?
nothing like this has ever happened.

yep, i would say a bad hard drive. Try booting off some apple os discs or the original install discs and run disk utility. But that evil clicking noise is something i just saw last night to one of my backup drives and that drive is not completly toast.
