"David: That's great news! So glad to hear you were able to resolve the issue. I know how stubborn external HD issues can be at times. It's always easy to forget a quirk here or there that we had to deal with to get older equipment to run;…"

Jake Heed replied to David Merrill's discussion External drive for iMac G4
"David: Just in case, try running Disk Utility on it to check the drive and permissions; also DiskWarrior (for deeper issues that Disk Utility can't handle) also if you have it. But I do understand; I have seen drives get damaged to the point…"

Jake Heed replied to David Merrill's discussion External drive for iMac G4
"David: If your 2012 MacBook recognizes the drive but the iMac G4 does not, I'm thinking of a possible formatting issue. Did you reformat this drive after you removed this drive from the G4? Try to remember what occurred after you removed this…"

Jake Heed replied to Rick's discussion HDI-20 and HDI-30 are compatible?

Jake Heed replied to Rick's discussion SE/30 won't boot with external SCSI drive on
"Rick: Been a while but ever do I remember the not so fun task of playing with SCSI voodoo.... All that said is to encourage you. Everybody that had external devices on those systems had issues from time to time. An ID should be as below: SCSI ID: 0:…"
