**There is a problem with large capacity ATA hard drives and SCSI disk mode on PowerBook models prior to the PowerBook G3 (introduced in November of 1997.) The affected machines include the PowerBook Duo 2300c, the PowerBook 5300 family, the PowerBook 190 family, the PowerBook 1400 family, the PowerBook 3400 family, and the PowerBook 2400 family. The problem only affects such machines because they have ATA hard drives. PowerBooks with SCSI hard drives are not affected by this problem.

***Duos that have been upgraded to a Duo 2300 will need an Apple IDE cable for installing an IDE drive for the first time. Upgraded Duo's generally have the stock SCSI drive still connected unless a hard drive upgrade was done at the same time.
