    Hi, I have a 500GB Seagate FreeAgent Hard Drive, and it is malfunctioning. I have used it many times before, and it has always worked fine. However, tonight I clicked the icon, and when the finder window for the HD came up and I went to scroll down, the window closed and the icons on the desktop blinked off and back on for a moment. So it seems that for some reason, it is forcing Finder to quit and reload.

    I am using a Macbook Pro with Mac OS X V10.5.6. Hopefully this is the correct forum, since it seems to be the hardware(HD) that is causing the problem. I am hoping to find out what is wrong, because I really don't want to lose the files on this drive!!

    Thank you in advance,
    Chris

    Well naturally, even AFTER all of the failed attempts at restarts, etc. I just clicked it one last time and it works! So never mind the problem, I just hope it doesn't happen again!
