so i have a pc that is crapping out on me. i know this is the mac forum and stuff, just bear with me. the pc is my wife's and she is using it for school. but it keeps crapping out on us. now i have a chance to get my hands on a laptop for her but it doesn't have an HD. it just so happens i have a 2.5 ide hd in my G3, with the adaptor. now i want to put the 2.5 drive into the laptop and then put her old 3.5ide into my G3. i have an idea that the 3.5 will go and transfer, because the 2.5 was originally a pc drive. but i am not sure if the 2.5 will transfer back to a pc drive in the process. plus, the 5500 i had the 2.5drive in first will no longer read 3.5 drives. is this standard for using the 2.5to3.5 adaptor, or was it a freak thing - the 5500 was having problems reading drives before the adaptor.
any help would be greatly appreciated, that is if you could follow the soap opera of my computers.
peace and love
