in my Dual 2.3 G5? Is it 400gb?
At least I think it is Seagate
Is this the DC or DP? I think you can have up to 750 per slot on the DC, but I'm not sure about the DPs (or if they even made a DP 2.3).
I believe that hard drive sizes have not yet reached the limit of serial ATA. This means that you can put as big of a drive as you can find in it.
Check out XLR8yourmac.com and their drive compatibility database. There are a few users who have used the 750GB Seagate 7200.10 drives in their Power Macs.
The .10 drives have the troublesome - for Macs anyway - SSC disabled and have the jumpers set for 1.5Gbit/s which will allow those drives to work fine with the Mac SATA controller.
800GB is the limit for that machine - combined.
That's what iThought.
Could someone confirm before I order 2x750GB Seagate SATA Drives that these will *NOT* work in a Dual Processor 2.0GHz Power Mac G5?
I've checked Apple's specifications page and it lists a maximum number of drives (2) but no maximum capacity.
Has anyone installed large capacity drives in a dual-processor Power Mac G5 with no issues? I'd really like to order these asap, but I can't seem to find a definite answer from google or Apple's support pages.
Does anyone know What the limit is on my powermac G4 (MDD version) BTW No it hasn't got the 128 gb limit
I thinkk the limit is something like 144 petabytes (1 petabyte = 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytes)
We are nowhere near that...
