    The hard drive has become increasingly loud (sounds a lot like nails on a chalkboard). I've noticed weird behavior with my iTunes collection as well as my video files. iTunes will just suddenly stop playing a song and songs on my iPods have begun to skip (like a ruined cd) and eventually the iPod will stop playing the Mp3 file. Some of my stored videos have the same kind of skips and I've been experiencing a lot of crashes in applications such as Microsoft Word. The iMac is still under Apple Care, so should I call them?

    I'd call first thing in the morning. You do have a backup of your drive, right?

    Yeah, everything is backed up on my pismo and my external hard drive.
