  1. Hmmm. A new media set fixed it. The media was previously created and backed up to under Tiger. I then did the Leopard upgrade with the same media and got the error. Selecting new media fixed the problem. Thanks.
  2. Hi there, Since installing Leopard I get this error: Internal consistency check failed: Assertion check at "elem16.c-687" It "looks" as though my backup completes, but the messages make me nervous. Any pointers? Cheers, -C
  3. Using a different type of media device is probably good advice. However, let's not get distracted. Retrospect supports Optical drives but not the one found in the current range of MacPros. I would have thought that EMC would want to address that.
  4. Hi there, Thanks for the reply. It is good to know that Dantz/EMC are now aware of this issue. FYI: I've had hardware with this drive since January this year. I believe that the drive has been around longer as I recall seeing some other posts mentioning it last year. Please see if you can raise the priority of catering for this device as it is in all of the Mac Pros as I understand it. If you need someone to test things then please let me know. I would really like to have my DVD media backups back. Cheers, -C
  5. I've just received and updated to the latest driver update ( and see that my OPTIARC is still unsupported on my Mac Pro - thus I can't back up to removable media. This is such a problem for me - when can we expect some support for the OPTIARC? Here are my machine's relevant details: Model Name: Mac Pro Model Identifier: MacPro1,1 Processor Name: Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz Number Of Processors: 2 Total Number Of Cores: 4 L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB Memory: 3 GB Bus Speed: 1.33 GHz Boot ROM Version: MP11.005C.B04 SMC Version: 1.7f8 OPTIARC DVD RW AD-7170A: Firmware Revision: 1.N8 Interconnect: ATAPI Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported) Cache: 0 KB Reads DVD: Yes CD-Write: -R, -RW DVD-Write: -R, -RAM, -RW Burn Underrun Protection CD: Yes Burn Underrun Protection DVD: Yes Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO Media: No
