Default External hard drive problem

I have a Powerbook G4 and an Iomega 120 GB HDD external USB/Fireware hard drive. Although it used to work fine with my Mbox, now ProTools won't start with it connected, and quits if I connect it when PT is running. The only thing I can think of that has changed is that I had to have my logic board and internal hard drive replaced. I reinstalled ProTools and now it won't work with my external hard drive.

Can a new internal hard drive affect my external drive? Any thoughts?

Thanks for any help!
Mike

Mike try running the Hardware Test with your included DVD. Might find the culprit here. Installing a new hard drive shouldn't have messed with the external drive. You may end up reinstalling OSX after a fresh format of the internal drive. Or maybe you did that already. Hey is this the Mac forum or what?

Update all that you can.... 10.3.7 PTLE 6.7cs7 delete the digidesign database folders on all your drives. Trash your DAE Prefs.

even on a healthy system, you can't add, or remove HD's while Pto-tools is loaded, I haven't met a pro-tools rig, that likes this yet. So you can eliminate that practice from your trouble shooting.

Before, and after you update OSX, make sure you repair permissions on your system drive.

Turn journaling OFF on your external drive, if it is enabled, and verify, and repair disk, after you've deleted the digidesign database folders.

Let us know how you're making out.
