Hdd spins up and spins down Tags: Hard Drives Macintosh Storage Last response: March 10, 2010 6:24 PM in Storage Share sizzlin321 March 10, 2010 6:04:04 PM Hello, I am a Mac user, and I just got a Macintosh G4 server. When I boot it up, it makes the "BONG" noise its supposed to make. But my HDD will spin up, and then spin down. It will also click twice. Should I mention that it is a SCSI Seagate Barracuda ST136475LW?
