    I've got a drive in my iMac G5 that I'd like to put into an external enclosure instead. Would I just need a 3.5" SATA enclosure or should I be looking for something more specific?

    Thanks

    intel imac recognize HD?

    hi. i am in the same situation as "bpl323", i have a g5 imac and i'm trying to salvage the harddrive and turn it into an external HD to backup my intel imac.
    Does anyone know if an intel imac would recognize a g5 imac hardrive?
    I dont really want to buy an enclosure if my computer wont recognize the HD...


    thx

    Any 3.5" Drive enclosures will work, FW or USB. :)
