  1. I have an OSX 10.2.2 client that shows up on the network as responding, but when I try to configure the client I get a "net retry" dialog and then an error. I have forgotten the client, reinstalled, allowed access over port 497, and all to no avail.
  2. In reply to: Is it that Retrospect doesn't run smoothly, or is it that your Plextor drive (earlier I'd suggested that you report the relevant information from Retrospect's Configure->Devices->Device Status window, but you instead included only the "sense" code from the log. I don't know if that includes the same information or not...) is not being well supported by 5.0 under OS X? Perhaps some just refuse to work well under OSX? Perhaps yours is doomed to never work (again, what's the specific version of Plextor mech that you have?). The information reported from Configure->Devices->Devices Status is contained within the log report. Firewire-A PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W8432T 1.07 I would have to believe that their is a problem with how "well supported" the drive is.
  3. It has been several weeks since the "error 206" problem started occuring. Today out of frustration I threw out all Retrospect files from my system, reinstalled from the original CD, updated to 5.0.205, recreated my back-up scripts and tried again.... no luck. Some things I find confusing are that Retrospect seemed to work fine from the Beta through the initial release. I was able to back-up with no problems. Then... I bought Norton SystemWorks and installed it, shortly after that I began to experience a variety of strange behaviors, mouse freezes, unix code appearing on the screen, etc. to the point that at start-up it no longer recognized my system. I decided "OK I've had enough". I erased my hard drive. Reinstalled all of my software from original CD's, ran all the updates so that everything was current (OS and apps). I then restored all of my documents from my previous back-up. Everything was great, it all went remarkably well, none of the little glitches that always seem to come up. So my sytem was back, my documents were back, Techtool pro said everything was fine, Drive 10 said everything was fine, I felt good. So I started to back-up my completely clean system and EVERYTHING freezes. I had to restart using the reset button on my G4 and since then Retrospect has been unable to write a CD without reporting an "error 206". All other applications are running smoothly as you would expect from a clean system EXCEPT Retrospect. Dantz does not respond and many LONGTIME users are left to fend for themselves.
  4. I thought I had included it... oops. Here is the report issued by Retrospect: Trouble writing: “16-G4 Set A” (3829646848), error 206 (drive reported a failure: dirty heads, bad media, etc.). Additional error information for device "Plextor CD-RW" [0:1], Sense > (PLEXTOR |CD-R PX-W8432T|1.07) As an additional note, Retrospect Desktop worked fine on the same computer with the same QPS firewire drive under version 4.3 and OS 9.2. Likewise Retrospect 5 worked until recently under OS X 10.1. I have looked around the forum and have seen numerous messages that decribe similar problems to mine, many seem to start with a complete system freeze (and this is OS X) and then the error 206 messages on subsequent back-ups. I am currently running: Mac OS X 10.1.4 (5Q125) Retrospect vers. 5.0.205 Power Mac G4 Processor info: Dual 450 MHz PowerPC G4 (2.9) Boot ROM version: 4.28f1
  5. I have for the past two weeks been getting an inordinate number of error 206 messages and have been unable to complete a back-up. I have confidence that my drive (QPS external firewire) is fine, I have confidence that the media (Sony CD-R) is fine, both have worked very well with Retrospect in the past. I tried recording full (660mb) CD's with Disc-burner, Toast, and iTunes with no problem. Yet Retrospect has gone wacky. I am using Retrospect vers. 5.0.205, OS X 10.1.4, this is a sample copy of the log: - 5/12/2002 10:04:45 AM: Copying OS X HD… Trouble writing: “15-G4 Set A” (3830990848), error 206 (drive reported a failure: dirty heads, bad media, etc.). Additional error information for device "Plextor CD-RW" [0:1], Sense > (PLEXTOR |CD-R PX-W8432T|1.07) Trouble writing: “16-G4 Set A” (3810439168), error 206 (drive reported a failure: dirty heads, bad media, etc.). Additional error information for device "Plextor CD-RW" [0:1], Sense > (PLEXTOR |CD-R PX-W8432T|1.07) Trouble writing: “16-G4 Set A” (3829646848), error 206 (drive reported a failure: dirty heads, bad media, etc.). Additional error information for device "Plextor CD-RW" [0:1], Sense > (PLEXTOR |CD-R PX-W8432T|1.07) 5/12/2002 10:34:03 AM: Execution stopped by operator. Remaining: 3947 files, 1.3 GB Completed: 5706 files, 313.4 MB Performance: 12.8 MB/minute Duration: 00:29:18 (00:04:57 idle/loading/preparing)
  6. I am also getting the same error 206 with an external QPS firewire drive. However this just started happening since I reformatted my primary drive and reinstalled all of my software from original CD's. I have used Toast to write entire CDR's (660mb) yet Retrospect seems to fail at about 350mb on almost every disk. I have gone through 6 at this point. I use Sony Brand CDR's and up until this time they worked flawlessly. I am using version 5.0.201.
  7. I am having exactly the same problem, update, extensions, etc. on iMac. Everytime I try to back-up I get a type 1 error and that's it.
