    I have a G4 600MHZ osx ibook. whenever i load up the computer a message saying "you have inserted a disk containing no volumes that mac osx can read" the ibook will not allow me to install any programmes. It will also not let me use the dvd drive or plug in any usb or firewire devices because the same message comes up.The hard drives name has also changed .I have tried using disk utilities but it will not let me do anything but verify permissions and have also tried reinstalling osx but the disk will not read at startup.

    Has anyone else had the same problem and if so how did you fix it?

    I might be wrong but it sounds like your using a CD as a Startup disk?

    thats what it looks like from your description

    assuming os x is on the drive and/or it is correctly formatted, i bet your drive is bunk.

    They made G4 600 mhz iBooks? I thought the lowest G4 clockspeed iBook produced was the 800 mhz model. It must be a G3 600 mhz.

    Thats correct 800MHz was the slowest G4 speed in the iBooks
