Sorry should have thought this through first.

What file system is on the hard drive. If it is NTFS that will be the problem.

  Hucky 29 Jan 12

ntfs yes

What version of Mac OS

For the third time

What version of the Mac OS is the G4 running?

  Hucky 29 Jan 12

10.4.11

10.4.1 (Tiger) will read NTFS so you should see the files. Does the external drive have other files that are visible?

You could try installing MacFuse but I don't think this will necessarily help.
