Looks as though Tiger has a 320GB pata you should be able to use

Western Digital WD3200BEVE Scorpio Blue 320GB Mobile PATA Hard Drive at TigerDirect.com

I had no problems with the 120GB WD drive I put in my 1.33GHz iBook last year ... but Sold it not long after that.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Leopard ... 10.5 will run fine on it depending on your memory config ...

always the more the better... but if mem serves right they will only go up to 1.5GB ...

512 embeded and 1GB stick .. pc2700 mem

Snow Leo will only run on Intel.... not G4 PPC's
