in Genius Bar edited January 2014
took apart my pc and sold it for parts. kept one hd, western digital 60GB since it had a lot of my music on it. Set the jumpers to master and put it in my firewire enclosure. I can hear the drive spin up but osx won't mount it... any suggestions?

    Could you boot in OS9? (I forget which computers don't boot OS9 but I just woke up and my "thinker machine" is not working at 100%) My laptop mounts FAT32, DOS, and NTFS disks.

    since that machine allows you to boot to OS 9 you should see if the drive shows up their. Then check system profiler in both to see what it says is attached.

    Powerbook G3 Firewire (Pismo) Plug it in before boot-up and it just works. No questions asked.
