Hello there,


sorry that I couldn't find a better title for my problem. But I really have problems finding the cause for these errors.


I have an mid 2011 macbook pro running 10.8.3 with an samsung 830 ssd inside.


So every once in a while I get massive system errors mainly after i wake it up from sleep. Mostly all open applications cannot write to the file system throwing different errors. Also my hdd starts reindexing the whole disk from scratch. If I restart my macbook even after unticking "open running applications again at startup" all applications  get opend again. In this state I am also not able to open applications anymore. These start just jumping and close themselves after some seconds. Sometimes these errors still persist and only after some restarts I am able to close the applications correctly. E.g Firefox says that an instance of it is already running and that I can't run serveral instances of it. But firefox is not listed in "activity monitor"...


I copied some errors which get thrown by some applications:

     - login(.....) malloc: *** error for object 0x7fe173400730: pointer beeing freed was not allocated *** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug



     - MacOS Error code: -50: Invalid parameters were detected for an operation

     - MacOS Error code: -102: No object of that in scrap


Webstorm: throws a


Could all this be a problem of the hdd? because i am at my 4th reinstall and these errors still come up randomly...


I would really be happy if someone could pinpoint the cause for these errors. Thanks in advance!

    I don't know about the 830 series, but I know that for the 840 series, Samsung offers firmware updates for use with Mac OS X... it may be that you simply need to update your firmware... have you contacted Samsung?
