Invalid Key Lenght 4258
Hey everybody,
Last friday I had some trouble with my G4 533 Dual.
Thursday I was on a break btw two sessions in my recording studio and I was importing some audio CDs via iTunes while I had Pro Tools on the background. Pro Tools was idle, just opened with a session opened but idle.
While importing the 2nd CD, iTunes crashed. I needed to re-start the machine w/o saving my session in Pro Tools. After re-boot, everything was fine but the folders inside the iTunes Documents folder. I tried to delete them and I couldn't, it kept giving me some wierd erros when trying to empty the trash. So I gave up trying to empty the trash and kept doing my work. Everything went fine, and at the end of the day I shut down and went home. Next day, when I turn the computer on it started booting up and froze on the startup screen while loading the extentions. I re-started and the computer didn't start up from the partition it should (I have to partitions, one with pro tools and a very slim setup for the extentions, and one for everything else). Then when it finished starting up from the other partition, it said there was a drive that was in an unknown format and was asking me to initialize it. I tried everything from apple, techtool pro, etc. and I couldn't fix it.The problem was:

Run Disk First Aid from your OS system CD and try to repair any directory damage to your HD. Try multiple times to repair if it doesn't work 1st time.
If not, get Disk Warrior.

What can cause this error?

The crash.

The file/s that you were importing from iTunes got corrupted and now the HD is confused so it won't let you delete it/them.

This definately sounds like a job for DW, which is the best at correcting this sort of thing. Give it a shot and report back, unless you've already corrected with the tools you tried.
