h34d, Welcome to the discussion area!
If you have the AppleCare plan it should be covered.iBook G4 14" 1.42 GHz [1.5GB-60 GB], iMac G5 20 1.8 GHz [2 GB-160 GB], Mac OS X (10.4.10), iBook 466 SE Graphite [DVD-576M-40 GB-AirPort],iMac G4 700/768, iPod Photo 30 GB
Since you are outside the one year hardware warranty, Apple will not pay for the failed hard drive nor for the replacement.iBook G4 14" 1.42 GHz [1.5GB-60 GB], iMac G5 20 1.8 GHz [2 GB-160 GB], Mac OS X (10.4.10), iBook 466 SE Graphite [DVD-576M-40 GB-AirPort],iMac G4 700/768, iPod Photo 30 GB
I have the same problem.
It took me a while to figure it out, but after successfully
booting from my external drive, iBook works. My iBook does not
show the internal drive, both in the desktop or Disk Utility.
Where can I get info on replacing the Hard Drive, since
I don't have Apple Care. I've search for it, but no luck on
instructions on How-To replace Hard Drive in iBook.
Thanks for the help.iBook 1Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 256 MB RAM
Thank you. Just what I need it.
And by the way, Wow! What a hassle to replace a Hard Drive for
an iBook. Apple really wanted to make it hard, huh?

Ok, so I'm about to replace the internal hard drive for an iBook G4.
I believe what had happen was that there was an electrical outrage
and I believe that burned that hard drive, or whatever.
But iBook works perfect when i boot from an external HD.
What I wanna ask is, I replace the HD, I reinstall the OS,
would the new HD work fine? or would it not?
Could the connectors, or whatever else is in there, might be burned, too?
Thanks again...Power Mac G5 1.6Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 1.25 RAM
