Hi,

MBP(2 month old) 2.4 GHZ, 2 GB Ram, 160 GB HDD

I just got the error report after restarting my MBP, the problem happened when I plug my external HD that I use for Time machine. I don't know if this error come from this external HD? I keep recieving this error report until I plug out the ext HD.

I have no clue what is really happning here, any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

Turn off time machine and select "none" as the disk choice. Then plug in the ext HD.

You may need to repair the HD, or perhaps format it again.

Thank you for your advice, this works like charm. Howerver, I did find out the problem before I read your advice, but what you said is very correct. I had to stop time machine first and I plug out ext HD. I plug it in another my iMac and earse.

Well, I had big problem here. The iMac did not regconize this ext HD either, I am not so worry because I bought this ext HD about 5 days ago and it is in warranty. The ext HD i bought was Seagate FreeAgent Go 160GB 2,5" . I bought this ext HD before I read the thread about Warning on Seagate HD. I don't know if this is error come from Seagate but I fixed it anyway.

I had to plug it in another machine running windows, boot from Hiren 9.3 cd, and and go to Partition section, there are many kind of partition tools here. First I chose Partition magic pro, it did not work. What I saw is the yellow blank with the name BAD on it indicated on my ext HD, I could not format it either. It ran but error in the middle way.

Then I chose another partition tool, Acronis Disk Director Suite. Well, with this tool I could see the optition Delete partition is visible so I delete partition and create a new partition unformatted.

I plug it in my iMac again and now I can see it in Disk Utility. I erase my ext HD with Zero out data and I chose volume format is Mac OS Extended(Jourlaned). I took about 2 hours.

After that I came back with my MBP and tried it on. I worked perfectly. Well, I am still confuse if this problem happended because of hardware?? I hope not, I bought this ext Seagate because I can have 5 years warranty.

I hope this help for the one who have the same problem with me. Good luck and cheers.

To the ADMIN: I am sorry that I put the title like that, anyway, I am new in this forum and did not read the rule so much.

pjhutch has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Its most likely a corrupted file system that has prevented the OS from 'seeing' the hard disk properly. A re-format normally corrects this.
