10.3.9 - g5

an intermittent problem where certain folders won't open. I can expand the folder in the sidebar and all the files are accessible but if I double click then the folder window pops up empty for a second and then closes and a completely different window shows up. Then the problem goes away after a day or two - a couple of weeks later it happens with another folder. Any ideas?

Verify your disk...

Are you running anyother applications when it happens...?

When did it start?

What's in the folder...?

the problem was .m2v files created by compressor 1 in 10.3.5. - (I cant get compressor 2 in 10.3.9 to behave) - for some reason these files wont even show the getinfo, but work fine in DVDSP.

The weird part - the folders open fine when the window is small so the problem only appears when the window is around half screen or more

It sounds to me like a corrupt set of files in the folder or the folder may be corrupt... I would boot off the install disc and verify your disc make sure there is no data corruption...

I've got a similar problem with M2V files in general. For some reason, the OS doesn't seem to like them. Anytime I try to rename them, or get info, the finder window crashes and I have to relaunch. Very frustrating. This is on OSX v 10.3.9
