Anyone know what this means? Whenever I try to open any application an error code 2 comes up and lets me know to restart the computer. After I restarted it this error came up -2817 and said that it was a serious error and to insert the mac os disk. Any suggestions? I have a pretty big video project stored in my HD and I don't want to lose it. I tried to search for this code # but I could not find it. I also tried to run Norton Utilities though it and an error message came up that said that Norton could not finish checking my disk. Please help. Thanks.

Reinstall your system... but first, boot off a DiskWarrior CD and repair your hard drive.

Seems like your HD has messed up your System pretty badly.

-2817... error connecting to library (error occured in sub prepare). fragLibConnErr.

Not good.

Thanks, How do I boot off a warrior CD? What is it? Also is there any way to save any of the files that I have on my HD before I reinstall the system? Thanks.

Your files will be left alone by a system reinstall.

DiskWarrior is a commercial application made by Alsoft - I strongly recommend its purchase. Put the CD in your drive and start up holding down the 'c' key.

Before buying DiskWarrior, try booting from the CD that came with your Mac - a restore or sytem disc (put in CD, reboot, hold C until the system begins to load).

From there, run "Disk First Aid" (in the Utilities folder on your CD). It may be able to fix your problem, but I doubt it.
