    Will the Western Digital Caviar 120GB 7200RPM 8MB Buffer ATA/100 HDD work on my QuickSilver ? Just wondering cuz i want to get another HD for my computer for video.

    ATA hard drives work in all current Mac systems (from the blue and white forward as well). You will see all 120GB of the drive, but not see all of a 160GB drive unless you get an ATA controller that supports that size for the Mac. That very well could change after MWNY though.
