My friend has a Powerbook g4 with a lot of wedding photos, child birth etc. on it and the computer took a dump. Won't turn on nothing. And when i pulled out the ram sticks it looked as if someone has tried to take the ram out with a screw driver. There are scratches all over the underlying board, and loose parts. As repair is probably not an option for my friend at this moment, I was just wondering if there was any way to take the hard drive out of dead powerbook and make it an external so i can upload the photos onto my computer and deal with them. If there is a solution for this, where could i buy an enclosure for the hard drive inside a powerbook g4, and how much would it cost? Also just a few thoughts, 1: would I be able to get enclosure from FRY'S electronics or would I have to buy it online? 2: Does enclosure come with all connections, (usb, firewire, etc.) 3: How hard will this be to do, will I just put it all together and plug it into my intel macbook and be able to access powerbook g4 hard drive? 4: Will i need to know an administration password to access hard drive once it is hooked to my comp? ( she doesn't remember it) Thanks in advance for the replies this is very urgent for my friend, thank you.
