My G4 dual 1 gig is suddenly having problems. It won't recognize the second hard drive at all. The system drive appears after an extra delay. I get a crossed out circle symbol but after some spinning the system drive boots up. What could be causing this? I'm not out of space and I have repaired permissions.
