    Hi Folks, wondering if anyone can decipher this.

    When I connect my Apple bluetooth headset to my Macpro it connects fine and testing it in general preferences/sound it works fine. Then at some point the microphone input turns to pure static and i get a multi language kernal panic pop up.

    I have World of Warcraft running while this happens and as of yet have not tried it without that running. I figure I'll try that now, but in the meantime does this make any sense to anyone?:

    Another Kernel Panic!

    Just tried the bluetooth headset without that game running. After about 1 minute the system quits "hearing" the headset and the only input it gets from it is 100% static. 3 minutes later, kernel panic.

    Hmm... the other night, I was using my bluetooth headset to video chat on iChat with a friend and my computer kernel panicked.

    I thought it was an issue with the RAM and my computer kept freezing every time I rebooted it with various amounts/configurations of the RAM. At least it SEEMED like it was freezing... but I use a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Could the crash/"freezing" be linked to my bluetooth headset?

    I'm going to look at my logs and see if I find anything similar to yours.

    Thanks for the reply. After searching google for this issue it appears its a common issue with Macs.

    I wonder if its solvable.

    Does anyone have a bluetooth headset that works when connected to a Mac?
