I bought my G used and it came with a broken PAN/BAL pot. Yamaha got me set up with the part right cheap ($10 with fast FEDEX shipping - thanks Yamaha!), so in I went. Hit a few snags, so I thought I might save others a little trouble and satisfy the curiousity of others. I set up a little web page at the following URL:

http://www.bruceo.com/g

Oh, by the way, please unplug the unit and take precautions against static discharge.

Enjoy!

My, that is interesting. Thanks!

It almost hurts to see a G like that.

You DID get it back together again in working order, didn't you?

Excellent! I started taking mine apart, but I see now I would have most likely damaged the ribbon cables as I was pulling UP!!! ARG!!! :)

But now I don't have to, and the world is a better place.

From the simplicitiy of the dissassembly looks like a hard drive upgrade would be a snap. It looks exactly like the 60 gig I upgraded my 4416 to.
Any close ups of the drive? I might just slide mine out and try it in the 16G. If it works it's a $100 upgrade.

Robbie, I mentioned in the other topic where he posted this that I thought it really excellent. And the more I think of it, with peoples' Gs out of warranty, more and more will have occasion to open the beast up. Maybe a good suggestion would be to give these photos and annotations a permanent home somewhere and point to it with a sticky.

Nice pics, and a good guide for anyone who wishes to do the same.

I guess we can see now why Yamaha "say" the HD isn't upgradable :)

Be interested to see if anyone gets a HD swap to work.

I agree and we're already working on it.

Robbie - yes it is back together and working. No problems.

mrskygod - I did not go in close on the HD, but it is an Hitachi Travelstar. Looks like an ordinary hard drive to me.

Thanks for the thanks. Nice to be able to contribute!

If anybody wants to supply a HD I will donate my 16G and my electromechanical ablity as the experimantal donee and if it doesn't work out , I guess I could always buy it for the 4416. My 60 gig already has stuff on it so I don't want to pull it out of the 4416's caddy.

Question:

Does the Hitachi hard drive that is shipped with the G have any files/folders of importance, or are all the necessary things on board already???

All I did was install the hardrive in the 4416 power it up and the machine recognized it , giving a please wait screen and shortly it was old home week just like a brand new unit. Now I don't know about the pad noises , if they have to be reinstalled. A while back a G was offered on e-bay with a 60 gig drive installed. I e-mailed the owner and she was the widow to the guy who upgraded it and had no helpful information other than she knew he upgraded it himself.

The 4416 guys say the HD justs needs to be formatted but the way I understand 99% of all new HD are pre formatted anyway.

It does need to be low level formatted.

Some people have had to put a new drive in a laptop first and do that. Most haven't.

Suck it and see!
