I've had a Mac mini G4 for almost 3 years and now the Hard drive has crashed and the repair utility says that it had a S.M.A.R.T. failure. I understand this is bad and that I should probably replace the hard drive. Of course, this is no longer under warranty.

Is there a certain kind of hard drive that is recommended for this computer? It's a first generation 2005 mac mini.

If so, are they much trouble to install? I upgraded the ram awhile back using the putty knife method and it seemed pretty straightforward - the only difficult things were opening it and closing it.

Any advice on this would be appreciated.

Mac Mini g4, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
