  1. I am having a similar problem, only my system doesn't hang. I have a dual 500 Mhz G4 with a firewire VXA drive. Running OS 9.1. I have seen a pause while writing about every 200 MBytes, but the system doesn't seem to hang and will pick up the transfer after the tape drive goes through it's timeout, rewind-a-bit, and go ready sequence. The backups I have tried all completed OK, just took a lot longer that it would have had these pauses not bee there. I have tried this with two separate file sets and two separate tapes (one brand new). This didn't happen on 4.3. Interestingly, I note that the hangs only happen during the copy phase - the read-back for the compare doesn't stop at all. This leads me to suspect that it may have something to do with the compression part of the write cycle. I have sent an email to Dantz tech support, but have heard nothing back from them. Sounds like there is a real problem here that has different manifestations depending on OS.
