Now what? iBook G3/600 HD replacement


Posted about this iBook in the MacBook section as to whether to repair or not.

We are now trying to replace the hard drive with an 80 Gb one. The problem is that when I try to clone the existing HD over to the new one, CCC gets to the point of copying the applications folder and can't go any farther.

I assume this means the HD in the iBook is well and truly dead, but if anyone has any suggestions to get data off of it I'd be grateful. Worst case I'll have to install everything from the restore discs, although that will set her machine back some--I think she has OS 10.2 discs and the machine is actually on 10.3.9.

Thanks in advance!

Put it in a plastic bag in the freezer for forty five minutes.

Then try to clone it.

Not kidding. It works.
