    Hey guys, I'm looking to buy a portable hard drive for my g4 powerbook and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions because the USB power from the G4 powerbooks isn't strong enough to support some hdds. Any ideas? Thanks

    Build you own external drive with firewire. Just google it

    I have several Firelite HD's. One uses the FireWire port, the other is USB 2.0.
    They run off the PB and don't need an external power source. I have no problems with either one.
