MacDrive is smart. Got it for $45 shipped. It works very well so far. I will try to install software to it and see how it comes out. Adding a 120 GB is pretty easy like that. :)

Negative. No. Does not work, nor is it meant to work. I am trying to get this type of misinformation promulgated to Mac users: the switch for /3GB has nothing, repeat, nothing to do with the...

2GB is the limit 18,934 Views / 24 Replies  
Odd that this thread was sort of highjacked, but that's good that it's more or less on topic. Anyway, I did a little testing. First off, folks, the /3GB switch in boot.ini has no effect on the memory...
