My Power Book G4 gets an error code 36 when it tries to back up to my new 1TB G drive using Time Machine. I'm not using my iDisk. When this happens everything locks up and I have to do a hard shut down. I checked my G drive and there have been no backups completed. Searched the Forums but can't find any reference to this issue. Can anyone help? Thanks very much. B.

I read the article you forwarded. Unfortunately I don't know Unix. I'm a basic user.

It does seem Finder locks up and does not respond when I try to back up my system through Time Machine. And even though I have Quicktime on my laptop I'm not using it when this happens.

Guess my MAC is just too old (4yrs) to handle some tasks without the all powerful Pentium chips! I guess It's a trip to the Apple store for me.

Thanks anyway for your kind help.
