    Can kernel panics on one machine somehow cause panics on another machine. My situation, I recently started using a BC338 esata card in my mid 2007 MBP running Leopard. Never had panics before but since trying to use this card with an esata drive I've had 5 kernel panics. I also have a Mac Mini running Snow Leopard which has had two kernel panics during times when the MBP had panics. Can these be related? Before using this card, I never had panics on either machine?

    Thanks

    What are the log entries in each machine prior to the panic? It seems odd that one panic would affect the other one unless you are doing file sharing or something over the network that involves both of them.

    I'll need to pull the log entries and post later. I am syncing mobile me data across both machines.

    Another question, I thought the BC338 card was compatible with MBP. Has anyone else had issues with kernel panics with this card?

    Thanks.

    You might want to post this question in the Mac Pro forum.
