My ibook is completely dead - it won't even boot up! I get the happy startup chime but black screen and no whir of any drives. I contacted Apple and they have linked it to a problem with the logic board in iBook models built between May 02 - Oct 03. They will replace it for free but one main problem... I can't back up anything off the hard drive before I send it in. This repair must be done at the Apple Repair Center and Apple won't do any backups of drives for this repair. So this is what I was planning on doing. Since my drive needs to be pulled out anyway even to plug it in to my desktop to backup, I was thinking of getting a bigger drive to swap it out. I've read posts on putting in a IBM/Hitachi Travelstar 60GB ATA-6 2.5in 7200RPM HD and all the time it takes to do so. The time and install seems very possible for my technical abilities. I was just wondering once I remove the drive from the iBook, what does it take to attach it to my G4 mirror-door desktop? I also think I should initialize the new 60GB drive before I put it in the iBook and before I send it to Apple for the repairs. Has anyone else had this component failure problem? What would be the best way to go about handling this major problem? Is there any problems with the 60GB drive fitting in the 2002 iBook? Again, ibook is completely dead. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
