Ouch, this is going to hurt  

I've been having problems with my PowerMac G5. It's only 3 years old, and in the past month, it's crashed pretty hard at least 3 times. It happened again tonight, and I'm too tired to try to get it back on it's feet. Maybe tomorrow.

At this point, I need to order at least two new hard drives (probably 1TB) and an HD dock, and pray I can get the data off of the two drives in the G5. I did boot off the OS cd, to try to boot off my secondary drive, but neither of the drives were visible. Great, just great. My pictures are backed up on another drive, thank goodness, but those are only the files straight off the camera. Any post production work I've done could be gone, along with all the meta data I've added. And then there's my music collection, and some personal documents.


Time to spend some money.

I feel your pain. :( Good luck.

Thanks. The fact that both drives were inaccessible after booting from the OS disk has me worried that it might be more than a corrupted OS install or a bad disk. I can handle replacing a disk, I'm not sure I can replace the whole computer...
