A Problem with x[i_]:=

The assignment, x=N[Total[-2Log[((n)(pdpd)/v[I])^v[i]]],10], executes
for i=1,2,..,10, and I can make a list of the 10 outcomes by repeating
the assignment 10 times.

I thought that the assignment, x[i_]:=N{Total[-2Log[((n)(pdpd)/
v[i])^v[i]]],10], would make a list of the 10 outcomes, without the
necessity of manual repetitions, but Mathematica rejected it.

The error message tells me that my assignment won't execute because
times is protected.

There must be some way to do what I want to do, but I can't figure it
out.

I am using Mathematica 6.
