So my drive is definitely broken. I’ve sent off mails to a few sources and currently await their response. Hope I can just leave it in at my local dealer, and have them take care of it. Most likely they will need to send it away somewhere else though, however hopefully it can be fixed domestically. I’m just hoping for a quick repair. I’ve waited 6 weeks for a mother board replacement for my iMac and 8 weeks for a modem for the same computer. Whoa. Don’t want to wait that long for my PowerBook to get back.
