    I keep getting this error when trying to erase an external hard drive with Disk Utility. When I restart, the error appears again. I've seen others with this problem but haven't found a solution. I've tried removing iTunes from Applications and deleting select iTunes receipts.

    I'm running OS 10.4.11

    Any ideas?

    The issue with iTunes receipts was in 10.3.9 with iTunes 6, and only when repairing disk permissions. Try formatting the drive with another computer. If you get the same issue its likely an issue with the external drive and some bad sectors that are preventing it from successfully erasing.
