Yes you can.

I repaired a San Francisco Rush using standard Seagate 1,2 Gb harddisks...
I think that as long as the hardisk is bigger than the data, it's ok.

Better, you can use a CompactFlash CF Card to IDE Hard Disk Adapter Card instead. And use a compact flash card instead of the hard disk.

Be careful if you use a HDD to big.

I repair a Maximum Force game with a 8gb HDD and the game reset sometimes when there was to many sprites on the screen.

With a 4,3Gb HDD it's ok.

Probably the first one use to many power for the PCB.

Probably the controller on the pcb was designed to handle the precise same type as the legit hdd?

It probably just couldn't handle large disks correctly. If you remember, we had the same problem with our PC motherboards at the time...
