g3 powerbook problem?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014

i've got a powerbook g3 400mhz and upgraded the original drive to a toshiba 20 gig mk2016gap model.

this drive is terribly slow and or may have problems. it seems to constantly need to stop and think before it seeks (when it is active). i can hear it click around for a second. this occurs every 10 seconds or so when performing disk heavy tasks.

anyone know of this? more importantly, is there a fix to it or should i invest in a new hard drive? if so, what is a good model?
