    I am experiencing finder freeze on my PowerMac whenever I do a firewire target start-up on my PowerBook. The HD icon from my PowerBook appears on the other's desk top, yet as soon as I attempt to use the finder I get a spinning disk icon, and it persists even if I relaunch the finder. I end up having to restart, eject the PowerBook and do the target start-up the other way around.

    My PowerMac also seems to have a little trouble with an external. It doesn't freeze but it won't transfer some files, saying that they are unreadable and unwriteable. The files in question are easily transfered from the PowerBook to the same exteranl drive so I'm guessing the problem is in the PowerMac.

    I have done disk verify and repair on both computers and I am at a loss as to where to go from here. Anyone have an idea what's going on?
