Laptop freezes buring backup
 
Backing up a powerbook G4 to a lacie 250G firewire harddrive. Harddrive has been mac formatted. When I select backup and go it starts the process fine but the halts/freezes when only a few percent into backup requiring a hard reboot. Any suggestions?

I am doing a complete backup with destination drive erase and saving an image. Thank.

Crashes right away? That's pretty unusual: do you get a "kernel panic" (reboot screen), or does the whole thing just lock up?

If you could send a System Profiler report into support (run System Profiler, File | Save to XML, attach to mail message), that'd help me diagnose your issue...

Comp freezes with no warning. Below is info requested.

OK -- this isn't a system profiler report, but I can see from here that you're running Norton Utilities, which is likely the cause of your hang.

Let me suggest that you turn off Volume Saver and AutoProtect, as well as most other "automatic" features of Norton, and give it another shot.

Turnned off Norton, etc and backup proceeded fine until the very end when I received an error message and the following log (edited to comply to space requirements):

OK. Glad disabling Norton fixed your hang -- that stuff is evil and buggy.

The other problem is a known issue in 10.3.9 (see this FAQ) -- basically, a bug in Apple's disk image code. We're hoping they're going to fix it.

There's a workaround in the FAQ.
