Playing devil's advocate for my related questions on laptops that support IrDA...
I was checking out laptops of the G3 variant. Specifically the WallStreet II (PDQ), the Lombard, and the Pismo. I found a few vendors selling them and they offer options to upgrade the internal HD all the way up to 1TB. Now I now conventional wisdom is that under OS 9.x, you are limited to 128GB for IDE drives and OS 8.x I think was as small as 4GB, please correct me.
I know that under some conditions, you may be able to break that emit, like with a PCI card whose firmware supports high capacity drives by design (i.e. the Sonnet Tempo Trio with firmware 4.5). But I am asking specifically about for laptops.
How, if possible, can I have a 500GB internal EIDE HD in a WallStreet and see anything more than 128GB? Last time I tried I could only physically see the first 128GB of such a drive. Trying multiple partitions did not get around this.
Been reading up on this and trying to jog my old brain but I cannot see/remember anything different.
sombody learn me good...
