How to use Snow Leopards new QuickTime Screen Recording feature to… – StumbleUpon. Interesting methods and comments. Some programs make this process faster and easier. It should be obvious that this is illegal and doing this could get you in trouble.
Normally this happens when the RAM in the machine has turned bad. Could happen with a voltage surge which happens if you don’t use a UPS. I would remove half the memory and if it still continues, swap it out and take out the memory that was in it. If it still crashes, then its time to suspect the hard drive or logic board.
Pondini solves the issue. Other common Time Machine issues can be found here.
There must be something damaged in your installation of OSX. I’d suggest downloading and installing the 10.6.6 “combo” update. That’s the cleverly-named combination of all the updates to Snow Leopard since it was first released, so installing it should fix anything that’s gone wrong since then, such as with one of the normal “point” updates. Info and download available at: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1349 Be sure to do a Repair Permissions via Disk Utility (in your Applications/Utilities folder) afterwards.
If that doesn’t help, reinstall OSX from your Snow Leopard Install disc (that won’t affect anything else), then apply the “combo” again.

Apple – Support – Discussions – External HD Problem in Snow Leopard …. Lots of solutions for this. The most reliable seems to be to use a 10.4 disk. Other solutions of using 10.5/10.6 don’t always seem to work for everyone. Some people used iPartition, while others used GParted or 3rd party utilities. It is surprising that so many people are having this issue.
