I wasnt sure where to post this, so its here, if some mod could place it where it goes. I was using dvd studio pro 3, doing some video editing, and I was taking a file from my external hard drive and using it in DVDSP3, I got the beachball, then the external hd started clicking and making noise like it was going nuts, I force quit out of DVDSP3, and closed all other open apps, then after a minute or so, the hd stopped clicking, then I had a kernel panic! Ive only had like 1 kernel panic ever before, back in jaguar, whats wrong? Im about to repair permissions a few times, run cron scripts, etc.

Clicking noises in your hard drive is a very very bad thing.....usually means the hard drive is about to die on you. I would back up all your things onto the external hard drive and don't be surprised if in the next few days/weeks the computer will not boot

Then can't you just back the stuff up on the external harddrive onto the HD in your computer?
