    OS X stops making sounds
    I played a few songs in iTunes prior to this problem always happening. All of OS X's noises -- the "trash" sound, the "installed successfully" ding -- have all stopped making sounds. iTunes is paused or stopped so nothing should be preventing the sounds from playing.

    Repair permissions and have Spotlight re-index the drive. Sounds like you moved something you shouldn't have or an XML file got deleted.

    Still no sound? There is a feature in Onyx that will allow you to re-index the drive. Have you tried just a total shutdown and restart of OS X?

    Is that report I posted mean it's done...is there anything else I need to do?

    I used Onyx to re-index and still not working. Again, it's only when iTunes is running in the background, and the sound won't come back until a reboot.

    What I did to fix it was I unplugged my Firewire LaCie speakers, plugged them back, and the Trash sound was back. Still, isn't there a more sensible way to fix this?

    You might want to check your system sound settings in the system preferences section. You might have the output audio going through the Lacie speakers and causing a problem with other sounds.

    I've had similar problems in the past when trying to record audio through a firewire device. It usually has something to do with the audio output settings.

    One other thing I like to do is reset the pram every now and again. Mac OS X: What's stored in PRAM
    To do that, restart the computer and when the grey screen appears and you hear the intro bong, hold down the 4 buttons command, option, P, and R at the same time till it restarts again and you hear the intro bong a second time. You can let go after that. Whenever there's something funky wih the hardware, i like to try that.
