A while ago my hard drive crashed in my powerbook G4. I turned the computer on and it would not boot. I took the hard drive out and put a new one in and now the computer works. However I want to get all of my stuff off my old hard drive but I dont want to spend $500-$1000 on data recovery. I put the hard drive in an enclosure and plugged it into my laptop and it sounds like this If anyone can point me in the right direction as far as if this is a part that I could replace or if its a software issue it would be greatly appreciated. I would hate to spend all that money if its something I can do myself. Thanks.
