    Has anyone else had their Mac slow to a crawl when plugging their Pre into it? My laptop goes to an almost stop it feels like. I've plugged the Pre in twice today and after FINALLY transferring the photos (I selected USB Drive) I finally got frustrated waiting to eject it and just held down the power button until my computer shut off!

    Also, it sounds like my computer is just constantly working/running the entire time the Pre is connected to it.

    would you mind linking me to a thread/guide you followed? I did a real quick search for snow leopard and this was the largest thread that came up. I appreciate your time sir.

    OS X usually does this if it is having trouble reading a drive. Perhaps the file system on the Pre's USB Drive has become corrupted?

    bump
    edit:

    I hadn't even tried it and assumed there was some type of computability issue... not the case works like a charm

    1> even though apple is a unix/linux kernel based OS, try not to just press and hold the power button when the OS is locating the device. your messing with the EFI firmware

    go to utilities and look at activity monitor, it is possible that you may have to much running in the back ground also your processors could be over running and could cause the computer to over run and you see the beach ball. to fix that you need to re-set the parameter ram. goto apple.com/support

    hope it helps or set's you on the correct path
