Hi guys,
Unsure if this can be done thus asking for your input.
I want to swap out a Cube G4's puny 20 Gb drive and install a new one with a capacity of 80 to 120 GBs. Chances are this new drive will not be formatted for Mac and, having no external firewire drive enclosure handy i was wondering if this could work:
Install the new drive in the Cube, connect the Cube to my G5 w/ a FW cable, and boot the Cube in Target Disk Mode.
Do you think the new drive will appear on my G5's desktop and allow me to format it using Disk Utility?
Many thanks in advance,
Frank
