  27. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement, Upper Case: adım 27, 1 resimden 1.
    • Remove the following 11 screws from the bottom of the computer:

    • Three 3 mm Phillips around the battery compartment. (Some models may only have two screws.)

    • Three 4.5 mm Phillips along the optical drive bezel. (a magnetic screwdriver may help to lift these screws out)

    • One 11 mm Phillips in the lower right corner. (if present)

    • Four 14.5 mm Phillips.

  28. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 28, 1 resimden 1.
    • We recommend placing the computer on a soft cloth from this point on to prevent damaging the logic board.

    • Turn over the computer and open it.

    • Remove the 2 Phillips screws (3mm) from the edges of the keyboard area.

    • Remove the 4 mm Phillips screw from the lower left corner.

  29. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 29, 1 resimden 1.
    • Before you can yank the upper case off, you must disconnect the trackpad connector, the blue and white power cable, and speaker cable as described in the next steps. Be especially careful with these cables; never pull directly on the cables, but use a spudger to pry up the connector directly.

    • Lift the upper case and use a spudger or your finger to disconnect the trackpad connector hidden beneath the white plastic tab. Due to model variatons your trackpad connector may be different than the one pictured.

  30. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 30, 1 resimden 1.
    • Carefully lift the upper case about half of an inch and move it so that you can access the power and speaker cables.

  31. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 31, 1 resimden 1.
    • The connectors at the ends of the cables are attached very firmly to the sockets on the logic board. Pulling directly on the cable will either separate the cable from its connector or the socket from the logic board.

    • Lift the upper case enough to disconnect the blue and white power cable from the logic board. Using your fingernails or a dental pick, carefully pry the connector from its socket. Make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

  32. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 32, 1 resimden 1.
    • Carefully disconnect the multicolored speaker cable from the logic board. As before, make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

  33. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement, Top Shield: adım 33, 1 resimden 1.
    • The screw circled in orange may not be present in some models.

    • Remove the following 16 screws:

    • Thirteen 3 mm Phillips.

    • One 3 mm Phillips. (actual screw not present in image)

    • Two 4 mm Phillips.

    • Be sure to fit the screw near the left hinge through the loop in the display data cable, securing the cable to the upper case.

    • Missing in this photo is the Bluetooth antenna present in some iBooks. It is located at the upper right corner of the battery compartment, just above the 4mm screw. You can see the bracket for the antenna in the photo. It is the two I-shaped holes just above the 4mm screw that must be removed in this step. To remove the antenna, slide it toward the LCD, and tilt it vertically back towards yourself.

  34. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 34, 1 resimden 1.
    • Lift the top shield up from the right side, minding the upper left corner, which may catch on the metal framework.

    • If your iBook has Bluetooth, as discussed in the previous step, you will need to slide the antenna through the lower I-shaped hole in the shield before completely removing the shield.

  35. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement, Hard Drive: adım 35, 1 resimden 1.
    • Turn the computer over and disconnect the orange hard drive cable, removing tape as necessary.

  36. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 36, 1 resimden 1.
    • Remove the four Phillips screws securing the hard drive to the metal framework.

  37. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 37, 1 resimden 1.
    • Lift the hard drive up, carefully guiding the cable through the slot in the lower case.

  38. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement, Hard Drive: adım 38, 1 resimden 1.
    • Remove the hard drive brackets from the left and right sides of the hard drive.

  39. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 39, 1 resimden 1.
    • Remove the two black T8 Torx screws from either side of the hard drive (four screws total).

  40. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Hard Drive Replacement: adım 40, 1 resimden 1.
    • Use the transparent orange loop to disconnect the large orange ribbon cable from the hard drive.

    • This is a bit tricky. Try rocking the cable gently from side to side while applying even pressure. If you bend the pins, do your best to straighten them, using the hard drive cable as a guide.

    • If you are installing a new hard drive, we have an OS X install guide to get you up and running.

chacal - Yanıt

I put one in and now the machine doesn't recognize the drive.

I'm gonna just pull it out and use it as an external until I can figure it out.

I just went through the whole process and it worked fine. Used super duper to copy the original drive then restored using target disk mode and my MBP

Make sure that you print out the screw sheet (PDF), and lay out all the screws on the 3 sheets of paper. It makes it easy to keep track of all the screws, and you won't make a mistake when putting every thing back. Also, go slow and take your time. You don't want to rush on the HD replacement. It took me about 2 hours. The hardest part was take the case apart. You may want to look at a youtube video called "iBook G4 Hard Drive Swap", by smalldog.com. The video shows how the case comes apart, and puts your mind at ease when you hear the cracking sounds as the tabs are released. The instructions on the ifixit.com web site were awesome.

I too installed a 320 gb WD Hard Drive in a iBook G4. No problems. However, I did test the drive with one of my hard drives utilities to make the sure there were no write errors before installing the drive.
