Ask Max: Quicksilver G4 hard drives - how big can these get?
How big a hard drive will work with my PowerMac G4 Quicksilver?
My dad had a hard drive over 100 GB that did not work in his PC a few years ago, so I know that just because a hard drive fits does not mean it is compatible. I currently have an 80 GB drive.
If you have a 733, 867 or Dual 800 MHz processor than you have the original Quicksilver. If you have a 800, 933 MHz, or Dual 1GHz processor you have the 2002 Quicksilver and can use larger hard drives.
Hope this helps.
