    Hi all

    I am trying to boot my Powermac (Powermac3,3) Dual 500 G4 into target disk mode.

    when I hold down the T on reboot nothing happens

    when I use the method where you go to the startup folder and select target disk mode, it boots into a grey screen and tells me that target disk mode 'fell through' and to type mac-boot to continue booting.

    I really want to get this working. Any ideas?

    Disconnect any data cables except the USB for the mouse/keyboard.

    Don't plug in the firewire cable until it gets to the target mode.
