    danny, Welcome to the discussion area!

    According to www.iramtechnology.com/newegg/IR1GSO333D that is compatible with iBook G4s.

    Sounds correct. It should be the following:


    However - I personally have this one of these on my 14" iBook G4 1.42, which should have the same memory compatibility as yours. It's been installed on my machine for over three years and has been rock solid. The price is excellent. This should be identical to the one that Crucial.com will sell to you using their Memory Confuigurator tool.


    Check the reviews, searching for "iBook". There are several comments about using this module on an iBook of your vintage or earlier - without any issues.

    Thanks for the replies. i didn't know whether to start a new topic but i figured i'll just keep goin with this one.. So I installed the 1 mb of ram. I'm now trying to to do a software update and i keep getting the same error message i was getting before: "your startup disk is full please remove some files". The system recognizes the card. When i go to about this Mac it shows 1.5mb of memory. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

    And thanks for welcoming me to the forum!!!

    That message has nothing to do with RAM.

    That message has to do with how much free space is on your hard drive. You will need to delete files from the hard drive to free up space. Don't forget to empty the trash.

    Hi everyone,

    I have a quick question also about RAM. I have a iBook G4 1.07GHz, 512MB and Leopard. I want to upgrade the RAM so I just ordered 1GB (1024MB) PC2700 DDR SODIMM 200 Pin Memory Module from Other World Computing (OWC).

    Can someone please tell me if that is the correct RAM. If not I have to contact them and cancel my order.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Duane for the response. Yeah after reading up i figured that out. Kinda of a brain **** on my end! haha
    I now have another issue but it maybe third party related. I have a lacie hard drive that i'm trying to move some files int . i had already formatted the drive a while back. However when i connect the external drive via a 2.0 usb cable it never shows up on my g4 now. If anybody's ever experienced this before i'm all ears...but i'm afraid the drive is bad.

    Thanks for everyones help btw!

    Yes that should work.

    Is this a bus powered drive or does it plug into the wall for power? If it is bus powered it may not be getting enough power from the iBook to operate.
