  1. You're not alone; I have the same kind of problem with the same drive, although it only happened after the 4th (last expected) disk in the backup set, using DVD+RW disks.
  2. It seems to me that this was to fix an unintentional failure of DVD-R media, but the for the HLDS GSA-S10, Retrospect originally intentionally did not support DVD-R media. Furthermore, what about CD-RW and CD-R media? And furthermore, most of drives originally listed in the driver update version history as being supported only for DVD+ media are still listed in the compatibility database as being supported only for DVD+ media, hence my question about whether the GSA-S10 is an exception to this.
  3. The device compatibility database states that Retrospect supports this drive only with DVD+R, DVD+RW, and DVD+R DL media.
  4. In the Retrospect Driver Update for Retrospect 6.x (Mac) Version History, in version, it states HLDS GSA-S10 (Apple version) Optical *Only DVD+R media is supported with this driver update and optical devices. However, in the Device Support Information/Database, the device is listed as Qualified, with no mention of any limitation. Has the limitation been removed in a later driver update, or is the database incorrect?
  5. I'm considering buying a Sony DRX-830UL/T to replace a Yamaha CRW-F1E that is in the process of dying, after many years of use with Retrospect and for other purposes. Are there any plans for Retrospect to support this Sony drive? Has anyone tried CD/DVD Custom Configuration on it, and if so, what were the results? If you ask why don't I just buy a drive supported by Retrospect, this is the only external drive that I found that is a combination CD-RW, DVD±RW, DVD±R DL, and 12x DVD-RAM that is bundled with Mac software for burning disks.
