    I have a wallstreet G3 266Mhz.
    I installed a Travelstar 30 Gig 5400RPM drive.
    It worked fine this moring - took OSX 10.2.8.
    Then I put it to sleep and now It won';t start up.
    I tested it and the drive works fine - but will not work in the laptop anymore - the old 4 Gig drive works fine
    any ideas?

    can you start up from a cd with the HD in the computer?

    no - it won't with the cd either.
    I read that the travelstar drive interfers withte magnetic sleep sensor - and through testing I have confirmed this :(

    I am now trying to find some magnetic dampening wrapping for it - any other ideas?
