Thanks for responding. The G5 specs say the stock 250 GB drive is SATA 1.5 Gbps, but not if it is SATA II.

"...Serial ATA supports 1.5-Gbps throughput per channel (equivalent to a data rate of 150 MBps). The Power Mac G5 can hold two internal 500GB Serial ATA drives for a total capacity of 1TB of storage."

Are you saying the Mac's IDE host interface can't read SATA 2 and 3?
