    Disk Bitmap Failure
    I have video stored on an acomdata ext. HD. While trying to edit the video, using Final Cut Express, all kinds of goofy things were happening. I did a Disk Repair: it found and repaired bitmap error. Do it again; it found and repaired bitmap error. The third time it passed. Tonight I tried it again and again bitmap error found and repaired. The second time tonight it passed. One suspects the disk is telling me that it is preparing to give it up altogether. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Not necessarily the disc, this could just be the system files getting screwy.
    I would suggest doing an FSCK check first, and if that doesn't solve it, an archive and install to see if that solves it.
