SD stalls at Copy Files

My Powerbook G4 running OS 10.4.11 has a failing hard drive (confirmed by SMART verification in Disk Utility).

I booted up the Powerbook in Firewire target disk mode and the Powerbook hard drive appears on the desktop of my G4 desktop.

I launched SD from the G4 desktop and selected the Powerbook disk as the "copy" and an Iomega drive connected via USB to the G4 as the "to" volume. Full backup was selected.

The "Prepare to copy files" seems to have worked just fine.

Problem: "copy files" has been running for more than 1 hour but no data has been evaluated or copied.

Could it be that the Powerbook drive is so dead that no files can be copied, or is it normal to take this long with no copy activity?
