    hi guys.

    woah, scary, i just had a kernel panic! it was really traumatic:D, but now everything seems to be fine.

    after the initial shock wore off, i started to investigate into why it had happened. i use my ipod shuffle as a pen drive most of the time, so i plugged it in to retrieve a file from it. the ipod shuffle would not mount on the desktop, so i took it out, and nothing happened. on the 2nd attempt, the same thing happened. on the 3rd attempt, upon removing, i had the kernel panic.

    i restarted, and everything now seems fine. i re-inserted the shuffle, and then the ipod updater started autmatically and updated my ipod to 1.1.3. then, it mounted on the desktop and everything worked fine. i then repaired permissions, just to be safe.

    can anyone explin why this happened?

    should i zap PRAM and run system diagnostics from my OSX disk?

    any help/reassurance much appreciated, im still a little shaken about the integrity of my powerbook

    thanks guys

    Did your Shuffle have the latest firmware on it before you restored it? I wouldn't worry about your Mac too much at this stage unless you're bored in which case you could do a quick test from the Hardware Test CD. :)

    no, that was probably the problem...hence why it updated.

    it's been fine since

    thanks!
