    I thought that you had a powermac g5, come to think of it you most likely just confused the title

    but I thought that all sata II drives were backwards compatable with all sata I hardware

    Don't you remember, this is the iMac G5 he wanted to make into Intell one by swapping out the logicboard. Some SATA II drives don't down grade themselves to SATA I properly. WD drives are like this. I have a WD Green drive in my G5 that would refuse to work unless I set its jumpers to work in SATA I mode.

    Do not just insult me because of my past. I said nothing offensive to you.

    That wasn't you? Oh well, it was something you'd query about at the least.

    Would you recommend just getting a hard drive that is known to work?
