Titel:

Hard drive problem in Powermac G5

Tekst:

I purchased a used g5 and wanted to make it a backup computer.  I installed 2 2tb WD harddrives.  The top bay worked just fine and I was able to format it and install the OS, the bottom bay cannot see drives (I've tried multiple different drives in this bay).  Could it be the SATA connection--it looks like it's just a cable that snaps into the logic board?  If this is something I could replace it might save this computer.
