    Hello again,

    could someone please let me know what error type 2 / type 3 stands for?
    I've been using a music software lately and I constantly get this messages after being kicked out... :confused:

    Is it a memory problem?

    regards

    J.

    From www.appleerrorcodes.com

    D=02 Address Error
    The Motorola 68000 microprocessor can access memory in increments of one byte (8 bits), one word (16 bits), or one long word (32 bits). The microprocessor can access a byte of information at an odd or even memory address. But it must access a word or long word at an even memory address. So, when the microprocessor attempts to read or write a word or long word at an odd address, you see this error. Since that's a 50/50 proposition when running random code, this one shows up quite often.

    ID=03 Illegal Instruction
    The computer has a specific vocabulary of machine language instructions it can understand. If a computer tries to execute an instruction that isn't in its vocabulary, you see this error code. It's less likely than error 02, but still very common.
