Hey everyone. I have a 160GB drive that is in my iBook G4 1.33Ghz and recently acquired a Powerbook 12" 1.5GHz. Can I just drop this drive in and not have to reload everything? I am unsure....

Thanks again. You guys are my saviors!

Plug and Play

It should be able to go from those two machines with no problems at all. I've done this a few times before. Good times!

Thanks

I thought that you could just do that. I know that on some PC machines that's a big no no.

I will give it a shot. Thanks guys.

Yes, it'll work fine. With Ma

Yes, it'll work fine. With Macs, you don't have to worry about drivers and stuff.
