    Hello, I got a new 24" iMac about a month or two ago, was pretty much as soon as they came out. I have updated all the software, by downloading each update file from university, as I am not connected to the internet at home yet.

    Recently programs have been freezing and making the computer crash. I decided when it happened this morning while trying to export a file to pdf using neooffice to make a note of the error log in the console in the hope that someone may have any ideas why it is happening. It happened again while looking at the console (it doesnt usually happen this often, so there are two instances of problems shown below) any help would be great.

    The logs that looked like the errors are:

    Nov 14 10:40:34 Chris-iMac kernel[0]: (73: coreservicesd)tfp: failed on 0:

    Nov 14 10:53:03 Chris-iMac kernel[0]: disk3s1: I/O error.

    Nov 14 10:53:03 Chris-iMac kernel[0]: disk3s1: media is not present

    Nov 14 10:53:04 Chris-iMac kernel[0]: USBF: 526.126 [0x40eaf00] The IOUSBFamily is having trouble enumerating a USB device that has been plugged in. It will keep retrying. (Port 1 of hub @ location: 0xfd100000)

    Does it only happen when your iPod's plugged in? :)

    could be I suppose, I have a 1st Gen Shuffle and the nano before the new one. If this was the problem is there a way of fixing it?

    Well, reformatting the iPod might help but don't do that 'til we've determined that's the problem (unless you're really bored). Try running 'round with your iPod unplugged for a while to see if you get any more problems. :)

    Might reformat the ipods, I am a student so time isn't really an issue and boredom can easily sink in when trying to work :)
