I have a Powerbook G4 15.2" running OS 10.4 which I need as I use Classic to run a programme in OS 9. Two days ago I updated Norton antivirus using Live update and when finished ran the anti-virus programme which completed showing no virus. However I found that the screen was frozen and did not respond - I closed down using the power button which closed the computer. I then found that when started up the gong sounded but nothing else happened. I put in the Startup disc for OS 10.4 but apart from hearing the startup chime and some noises from the disc nothing happened .Then i found I could not eject the disc using Eject. F12, pressing the mouse key on statrtup. Any suggestions? The screen was perfect previously.

I have a PowerBook G4 using OSX 10.4.11I am trying to move

I have a PowerBook G4 using OSX 10.4.11I am trying to move albums from iPhoto onto my Toshiba aux. hard drive S/N 60JLFA4LSIJ7, 320GB.When I do this I end up with a list of the photos in the album, each photo identified by number such as DSCN4976JPG and listed separately on the hard drive.This means if I move all my photos onto the hard drive I will have a list of 20,000 numbers not grouped in any way.What I want is to move the albums to the hard drive with their contents intact, not in a list with one photo on each line with its number only, no name.How can I do this?
