The wife's Hard drive on her Ibook G4 14" is bad. I need to no what to replace it with.
I replaced my HD in my Titanium a little over a year ago and also our Powermac G4.
Since I cant turn on the Ibook I dont know which hard drives will work.

Same type that worked in your Ti Book - 2.5" ATA/IDE.

Replacing the hard drive in your ibook will be a bit more challanging then your powerbook. Also a 120gb is the max size that you can install in there. Check out iFixIt.com for a complete guide on replacing the hard drive in an iBook G4. Good luck.
