    Similar problem here. I can run my Mac with Lion all day...until I try to turn on my external hard drives. Then it tells me to do a hard shutdown. I reboot and in under three minutes, my Mac crashes again.

    I had this happen with one of the internal drives on my new MacPro, a 2TB Caviar Black that up until this point, had been flawless. I was deleting 1,800 photos from a work folder and it froze the finder to the point of needing a hard re-start.

    In short, it hosed the drive completely. My solution was to get rid of the biggest piece of garbage Apple has ever made and go right back to a truly professional and bulletproof OS, 10.6.8.

    Best thing I ever did, all is well know, new drive installed...

    So downgrading to Snow Leopard is my only option?
