Mac freezes when using external HD !
Well, this happens all the time. I have a 500 Gig SeaGate SATA and I could not write to it as it was formatted with NTFS on my earlier Windows laptop. So, I was copying all the files to another HFS+ on the same drive so that I could format the partition 1 with HFS+ and move the data back. But It copied 40% of the files and the Mac frooze. Force Quit, Restarting Finder, nothing worded. I even pressed Log Out, Reboot, etc. but it was frozen. However I could open apps like iCal. But could not quit any of them or Log off/reboot.
As soon as I unplugged the HD, it started working fine, all commands were executed and the apps exited and immediately it logged off and rebooted !
Was just wondering whats the issue......
