Hi, I am trying to access my external hdd, I have 2 external hdd. The first one is a 2.5 hdd that came with the original MacBook. The second one is an external digital western drive. Problem: It started after my upgrade to 10.5.6, (or so I've noticed), when I plug the hdd into the USB my computer grays out and this little box that says "hold down the power button to restart your computer" in German, French and Spanish. Does anybody know about this problem? Is this a PRAM problem? Or is it a faulty USB controller. Thanks! My config: Mac OS X 10.5.6, MacBook 2.2 Ghz Duo, My console log is attached.
