    Sounds like you have been flirting around with a bad hard drive.

    The Hard Drive is most likely dying in your Mac. If you can boot your Mac from the Mac OS X install DVD, check the drive's S.M.A.R.T. status in Disk Utility. If it says Failing then you know you have a bad drive.

    i agree with everyones post, just man up and buy a drive from newegg

    you can pickup a 160 for about $44.00
