I am trying to upgrade my faithful TAM to a bit more than the original 4GB hard disk space.
I have tried different size HDs and are having a hard time finding one that is accepted.
I boot from a CD ROM and format the drive from the TAM.
When I attach a 80GB it does not turn up as an attached unit, so I cant format it.
Furthermore, on this site
I read this statement
"Steve Wozniak noted on Go2Mac.com that, "A volume over 4 GB will not work in a TAM. It causes what appears to be total death in a short time, like when enough of it gets used."
which sounds scary. Any thoughts?

i have tams with 20 GB HD and 80 GB HD for years now
i partionned the HD's > first partition 2 GB and second partition the rest
Quick idea: check the jumper settings. Apple's braindead IDE implementation in many Macs (plus the %&^@#%^* CMD646 in the Yosemite G3) will only speak to a drive that is explicitly set to "master":
Have a look at Toshiba's 2.5" PATA hard disk jumper settings guide:
I hope you have some mini-jumpers handy. ;)
