This is to report the succesfull replacing of the harddrive of my iBook G4.
Suddenly last week my iBook started to freeze unmotivated... I wisely decided to backup my harddrive monday and tuesday the computer just stopped in the boot sequence, something was wrong. I guessed my harddrive was the main reason, especially since I had noticed unusual nocies from that area of the computer, and so I bought a new Wester Digital 120GB 5400rpm 2.5" drive and have now succesfully replaced the olddrive with the new one. It is a time consuming process and quite involved since you have to remove some 50 screws to get to the harddrive. I followed the instructions found at this guide http://www.faqintosh.com/risorse/en/guides/hw/ibook/g4hd/. The guide is very good, clear and precise. I only had to remove 3 more screws than noted in the guide.
