Hello MR community! My Mac Mini has been having very strange problems for the past two or so days. The first problem happened when I went to turn the computer on. Everything else except the computer came on, the screen etc. But the computer would not turn on. No lights, fan, no startup sound etc. I had to jiggle the three prong end of the power cable to get it to turn on. I am also having severe errors with iTunes. iTunes says that my external USB Drive is not read/writeable. However I can open and see all of my files in the Finder. I also get a Error when trying to copy files from a burned CD and I get a error 36.
Can someone help? Please!!:(
Thanks,
MM:apple:

Can you read AND write files to the external drive?
What kind of external drive is it?
Is it possible to connect it via firewire to test?

Thanks for replying! I can read and Write files to and from the External Drive from the Finder only. The external drive is a acomdata enclosure with a 112 GB harddrive in it. I cannot test the drive with firewire because the drive is USB only.
