    Hi! After putting in my USB flash drive, the screen got darker and I got this error message:

    Code:
    You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button for several seconds or press the Restart button.

    When I rebooted my computer I got a dialog asking me to send an error report to Apple. Here are the technical details from it:

    Code:

    I am now using the flash drive just fine.

    Is this just some random crash or is it a big deal?

    Thanks!

    i freaking hate that warning i used to get it all the time until i did a full erase and reinstall. But if it only happened once for you i woundnt really worry about it unless it starts happening frequently

    It is called a Kernel Panic.

    It is usually symtopmatic of bad hardware/bug in a driver.

    I'd put it down as a random crash unless it keeps happening.

    I've had that once (only once) i'd say it's a random crash. If it happens frequently, you should get the Apple customer support. This reminds me of a screensaver that fakes kernal panics http://www.doomlaser.com/?p=12 :eek::confused::mad::rolleyes::):D

    Restart Computer when inserting USB

    Hi, I was wondering if any more members have experienced the same problem, and if so, what fixes they have discovered. My MacBook Pro has shown this message every time i have inserted a USB flash drive tonight.
    Cheers
