Okay, so where do I find an internal drive with "blade connectors" as it describes in my G5 manual? I've hunted high and low, but to no avail. Am I missing something?

Any help would be so much appreciated.

Thanks all!

You just need a standard SATA drive. Like these http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-154&depa=0

So, am I looking for anything that is "SecureConnect"? Is that the S in SATA?

Thanks for the help!

No, the "S" stands for "Serial," which is the type of internal drive the G5 uses. It happens to use a different type of connector (blade) than regular ATA drives (pin). Any Serial/SATA drive you buy should have the proper blade connecter.

Go to your nearest CompUSA - they're selling 250 GB serial drives this week for only $159.
