It’s dead, Jim. My PowerBook 5300 is dead. Quite sad, really. Tamas discovered the SCSI interface between the hard drive and the motherboard is super-proprietary, and so my only option for data recovery is to buy a second 5300 on eBay, put the old hard drive in it and hope for the best. Very sad. I did love that machine. My first PowerPC. I’m buying Kayt’s old 8500 as a desktop, and hoping to win my bid for the second eBay 5300. Fingers crossed.
Now, where’s my Vicodin?
