Still having difficulties. Seems that many files on the iBook are corrupted somehow. Though the system seems to run fine, I have been unsuccessful using SuperDuper to do a full backup, as well as an attempt at user files only. Additionally, I have tried using Disk Utility to do a 'restore' backup-it also failed. Finally, attempted to backup user files by simply dragging to firewire drive-still failed.

I've run a virus scan, and nothing was detected. The files that are apparently corrupted range from system files to mp3's to pdf's. Has anyone seen this sort of apparently system-wide files corruption?

I'd like to format the drive and reinstall OSX, but can't seem to backup any files before doing that. Obviously I don't want to lose everything in the process.
