Kernel Panic
So I got my very first Kernel Panic today after owning the system for 9 months. I have a 2 GHz 20" iMac G5 with 1GB of Apple RAM. My Software is completely up to date, and I just installed iLife 2006 a week ago.

I had the following Applications Open:
Mail, Safari, iChat, and iTunes. My wife was also logged in with Mail and iChat running on her ID.

I was watching a Video in iTunes that I had ripped from a DVD that I own via Handbrake. I then docked my iPod while the video was playing and it started to sync. I was 1/2 way through the sync when I recieved the Kernel Panic.

Here is the output from the Log:
Sun Feb 26 20:09:35 2006
panic(cpu 0 caller 0x0021B3DC): btree_journal_modify_block_end: about to write corrupt node!

Kernel version:
Darwin Kernel Version 8.5.0: Sun Jan 22 10:38:46 PST 2006; root:xnu-792.6.61.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC

I quickly searched Apple's Support page for some information but it was rather light in details. Anyone know what any of this means?

More Info
So I went in to do some maintenance on the system due to the Hard Powerdown. When I tried to Verify/Repair the iPod Mini, I got this:

Verify and Repair disk “Ray’s iPod Mini”
Checking HFS Plus volume.
Checking Extents Overflow file.
Checking Catalog file.
Invalid BTH length
Volume check failed.

Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

1 HFS volume checked
1 volume could not be repaired because of an error

Erase the Mini and repartition using Disk Utility.

Reload the Mini back to factory defaults.

Sounds like the mini may also have a failing hd.

Ya, that's what I did when I got that message in the Disk Utility. I hope the HD's not failing as the entire unit was replaced less than 2 months ago by Apple :( Might be time to invest in a copy of Disk Warrior since I have no real HD Utilities on my iMac.

Thanks for the info.
