    Hi I just took the hard drive out of my old ibook g4 and put it in a case to use an external.
    But for some reason it won't show up? I looked in disk utility and its there but i cant mount it or repair it or anything. tried it on my wife's mack book same deal. i need the data on it.

    any ideas

    What kind of external HDD case do you use and please be specific?

    Also does it use USB or Firewire or both?

    And what Mac OS X version do you have with what Mac?


    PS: It's quite an "old" thread in forum time as I just realized.

    Also, are you using an external power supply for it?
