    Are there any of these that show how to change the hard drive on an aluminum powerbook g4? (bought in august 2004) I asked this in an earlier thread but no one replied.

    As far as I know, I'm up for correction, but if you check out Macbook Pro tutorials I think they are the same. If not pretty similar.
    Sorry I'm not of more help

    You've looked at the ifixit.com guides?

    Looked at ifixit.com. Def. helps but kind of want a video. I wasn't sure if Macbook Pro's were the same architecture but it seems like they would be. I'll take a look... they

    Can't find any video tutorials anywhere for either a macbook pro or an aluminum powerbook. (Please help?)

    I followed the iFixIt guide with no problems. It's not even that hard to keep track of the screws.

    The hardest part is getting the latch off near the Super Drive in front. After that it's the seam between the top and bottom case. It's cosmetic though.

    What about the casing that the actual hard drive? Is that hard at all? I looked at ifixit a while ago and it didn't say anything about that but now it does.

    Which size?

    There's only a rail with a few screws in the 15" models I've worked on.
