Default PT8 LE unhappy with GUID drive on G5

I was having problems playing back audio on a PPC G5 running Pro Tools 8. PT would play for a second then spit out the following errors in sequence:

-DAE Error -9060
-DAE Error -9031
-DAE Error -9060 (again)

then stop playing.

After trashing prefs, databases, rebooting the computer and the 003, a co-worker suggested I try playing back files from the desktop. Voila!

Knowing the drive that gave me trouble was healthy (I just zerored and techtooled it, and had just run Disk Utility on it) I checked the partition map formatting. Sure enough, it was formatted as GUID. Which SHOULD work fine as storage on PPC macs running 10.4 or later, just not as a boot volume. This was just for storage.

I formatted the drive, being sure to format it as "Apple Partition Map" and copied back the data. Now all is well.

Just thought I'd share in case someone else had this issue.

The system is:
PPC G5 Dual 2Ghz
4GB of RAM
OS 10.5.8
PT LE 8.01
003 Rack
