Time Machine crashes computer all the time

I see there are several TM and Leopard issues. Though I should ask my own question/topic. I've been trying to use TM for the first time on the new MacBook Pro. It crashes every time with that dark curtain falling over everything. Then the external drive needs to be reformatted and erased each time. Please help. What could be the problem? As this is a new computer there really isn't anything on here that could cause it to crash. All attempt to back up have failed. What is going on?

Mine is warm-hot to the touch. I can leave my hand on it without discomfort. A RadioShack IR thermometer measures the warmest point on the top at 120 degrees. There is a fan inside which is on at all times. The fan is fairly quiet. I can only hear it when my Mac is shut down. (A dual G5 is CLEARLY louder than the Time Capsule...) The hard drive goes to sleep quickly. If I try to access the hard drive, I can barely hear it spinning up to speed. There's about a 5-10 second delay before the finder window opens. I assume this is how it is supposed to be? Does anyone know how the Time Capsule is supposed to behave? There aren't really any references yet... The genius at my local Apple store just started using one and doesn't yet have an understanding of its normal behavior.

  • I recently upgraded to ML and now I find that CS5.5 programs crash unexpectedly all the time. Help

    I recently upgraded to ML and now I find that CS5.5 programs crash unexpectedly all the time. Is anyone else having this issue and what's the best way to resolve this. Help.

    You might check and see if there are any Console entries about what happened when you attempted to launch a CS 5.5 app.
    Adobe links its apps with the particular volume on which it is running, and altho' I can't recall specifics, I know in the past I have had to reset Adobe's settings after OS upgrade. I do recall that it's a fairly easy procedure; just don't exactly recall what it is.
    BTW, CS 4 runs on Mountain Lion for me.

    Ok so sorry for clogging the community!! I figured it out - you have to copy your videos into itunes manually. I did that, synched and all good!

  • My computer crashed and all the music in my library is gone.  I have the music in my Nano, can I transfer this into my main library?

    My computer crashed and all the music in my library is gone.  I only have the music in my nano which I'm trying to move into the library so I can burn cd's.  Is there a way to do this?  I'm going nuts.

    Yes.  See this older post from another forum member Zevoneer on different ways to copy music from your iPod to your PC.

    I would suggest the manual method over using 3rd party software, but the choice is entirely yours.

  • Everytime i restart my computer all the apps on my ipad erase

    Every time I restart my computer all the apps on my Ipad erase

    Are you saying that every time that you restart your computer - even if the iPd is not connected to it - apps are erased from the iPad?
    iCloud should have nothing to do with this situation. If anything, it would keep the apps on the iPad if the apps are checked to sync in iTunes - but that's not the exactly way that iCloud works anyway.
    If you sync over WiFi ...... and if the iPad is plugged into the wall socket and charging, iTunes is running on your computer and the computer is awake - if the apps are checked in iTunes to sync, they should remain on the iPad - not be erased.

    That sounds like you've engaged one of the automatic syncing options for your nano.
    Plug the nano in, and go into the Device screen for the nano in itunes. Is "manually manage ..." unchecked? If so, check the box for it, and click okay. Disconnect and reconnect the nano. Is the content on the nano able to be selected in your iTunes now?

  • Time Machine crashes and freezes the OS, I fixed it!

    Hello,
    My MacBook Pro (OS X 10.8.2) has experienced this week troubles when backing up with Time Capsule, and I searched on the community and the web where is a lot of same cases, but I didn't found any solution that fit on my case.
    The problem ?
    Simply when I start a manual Time Machine backup to the Time Capsule it goes normal for several Gigs and crashes with no error massage and then the OS freezes when trying to stop or force close Time Machine.
    Then ?
    The only thing to do for resuming the OS is to hard restart the device.
    I found some advices on this community and other forums, but no chance. I will list some:
    Open Disk Utility, and select the device's hard drive then choose "Repair disk permissions". You may try this on the backup disk if you are using an external drive for Time Machine.
    If you are on an incremential backup, try to delete the old backup file (if you use a Time Capsule) or format (erase) the external drive using Disk Utility. So you start the backup over, even if that should take a long time to finish it may solve problem.
    I have tried those steps, and I used both Time Capsule and an external drive for my tests, but I came with no results other than hard resetting my mac every time after a couple Gigs of backup and starts over.
    Solution?
    The solution that fixed this error, is to open Option window on the Time Machine Preferences and to Add ( + button) your personal folders one at a time to the excluded items list, and try to backup, if it freezes try to Add another one and try over, until the backup succeeds, the last added folder should the one that causes the crash. you can remove the first added folder but keep the last one, and execute the backup again. For me, after adding System files and Applications folder, Music, Downloads, Pictures the last folder I added before the backup runs normal was the Movies folder. and then I removed all my folders keeping the Movies folder excluded I managed to backup my Mac to both external drive and Time Capsule smoothly again.
    Hope that will helps you.

  • PSE is crashing - anytime, all the time

    I am using PSE9 on Windows 7; have been using the product for about 6 months. Recently added around 100 photos and since then Photoshop crashes all the time and for just about any or no reason at all.  At times the thumbnails in the organizer appear as "disconnected" from their source.  Have had to do all my editing now in PSE7.  Can anyone help me?

    boot on safe mode and check, it could be a third party app acting up

    Day 3 of my TC. Love it, so far. Curious, though...my disk seems to be spinning all the time. Is this normal? Even when computer is in sleep?

  • My ipod touch 4g is crashing with all the apps,appstore,and even safari

    After upgrading IOS6 iam very much diappointed with this upgrade never expected this from apple and even safari is crashing in my ipod touch 4g.My ipod has started hanging after upgrading to ios6.All the apps are crashing please give a solution.

    Try the following:
    - A reset. Nothing is lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iPod.
    - Wait for iOS 6.0.1 update.
    The App store is a problem for many users.
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4319809?tstart=0
    Ans some apps do not work with iOS 6 and will require the developer's update the apps.

    Aha. Sounds like a bad block on the hard disk. Is your data backed up, or can you get to your machine to the point where you can back it up?
    Don't use erase free space unless your data is backed up.

  • ITunes crashes my computer all the time.

    I have installed itunes on my desktop and my laptop. When I got my ipod touch I connected it to my desktop and started getting things going. Since then, everytime I plug my touch to my desktop, it crashes. (not just itunes, my whole computer). Unfortunately I didnt have System Restore turned on for some reason so I cant go back. Now, my laptop has the exact same OS as my desktop, but it hasnt crashed but one time. Ive been having to connect the touch to my laptop when i want to sync or charge. I have Windows XP pro SP3 btw.
    Now, I have read alot of post and I have tried everything from completely uninstalling itunes (atleast 6-7 times by now), uninstalling and reinstalling all my usb ports/drivers. There were no saved images on the touch either.
    I havent had the touch plugged up to my desktop in a couple days but it still crashes from time to time when I have itunes running. Ive checked my system logs after it reboots and this is the closest thing I get to an error:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007e (0xc0000005, 0x804f04fe, 0xba4f7a68, 0xba4f7764). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini020609-01.dmp.
    I tried looking for it too, but couldnt find anything. I REALLY dont want to have to use my laptop exclusively for my touch since most of my data and music is on my desktop.
    If anyone knows exactly whats wrong or how to fix it, please let me know.

    I seem to have exactly the same problem as FadedShadow 589, i just got the ipod touch and whenever i'm using itunes or am copying files my screen freezes and mouse and keyboard stop working so i have to power my computer on and off again. can anyone help?
