    G5 internal drive upgrade

    I have a PowerPC G5 (late 2004) and want to replace the internal hard drive (72 GB) with something larger and less likely to sucumb to the MTBF that I fear is creeping up on me. Western Digital has the right price for the drives I'm considering (320 GB SATA 3.0 Gbit/s at USD 79.95), but I read at Newegg that WD is making bad drives. This makes me nervous. Does anyone here know of a good reason to avoid Western Digital product? Thanks for your words of advice.

    Disable iTunes warning?

    Stats first: Mac OS 10.4.10 Dual 1.8 GHz PowerPC G5 2 GB DDR SDRAM iTunes 7.2 (34) I decide to delete a song, so I single-click it, then press Delete. This warning appears: Do you want to move the selected songs to the Trash, or keep them in the iTunes Music folder? I always, always, always respond the same way. Having to repeatedly okay my action is irritating. Is there a way to send the message away permanently? Thanks for helping.

    Will my G5 Mac run a 30-inch display?

    Thanks, Pronoun, for your thorough response. My "About this Mac" dialog says "Dual 1.8 GHz PowerPC G5." -- Is that the same as "dual core"? If so, then you've made me happy, because it means I can buy the 30-inch display and not need extra RAM or extra anything. Of course, the minute I buy it, Apple will release Leopard, 50-inch multi-touch screens, and, oh, my, so much more . . . . Thanks again.
  4. My specs: Dual 1.8 GHz PowerPC G5 2 GB DDR SDRAM I have a 20-inch display now. Ideally I'd like to run both. Will I need an adapter? More RAM? Thanks for any advice you folks have for me. Gregg
