  1. Thanks for the reply. I'm going to check with apple re: the drive. I do believe it must have problems.
  2. Hi Irena, I'm still having same problems after reinstalling and trying to run updates... ? Retrospect Express version 5.0.167 launch at 10/7/2002 8:35 PM + Executing Searching & Retrieval at 10/7/2002 8:35 PM To volume OSx? - 10/7/2002 8:35:57 PM: Retrieving from big back up 7/27/01? Trouble reading: ?6-big back up 7/27/01? (4265488384), error 100 (device rejected command). 10/7/2002 8:36:47 PM: 1 execution errors. Remaining: 19 files, 14.6 MB Completed: 0 files, zero KB Performance: 0.0 MB/minute Duration: 00:00:50 (00:00:48 idle/loading/preparing) I'm running OS 10.1.5 with 512 mb/800 mhz, new titanium G4 PowerPC Device status: ATAPI/MATSHITA/CD-RW CW-8121 / AA17 / PANASONIC CD-RW (1.50) No other devices connected at this time (a macally mouse and external apple studio display), but will have to attach old external cd drive with an ADAPTEC Power Domain Slim SCSI Card, 1480, UltraSCSI Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. It's a real problem.... Oh, but I am NOT getting the Kernel errors anymore.... just can't read the old back up CDs. Thanks!
  3. Hi, recently upgraded to new G4 powerbook with atapi, AA17, CD-RW CW-8121 Matshita drive - trying to restore from old backup made with external CD Drive - on my new computer - keeps getting error 100 - device rejected command. I downloaded the retrospect 5.0 driver update - put into folder - tried to launch retrospect, it wouldn't - rebooted with all types of kernel erros - trashed the driver update... because it obviously doesn't want to work at all with it... any hints or suggestions for retrospect to work with this combo drive? does anyone else successfully get it to work? or is it because i'm trying to archive old backups? thanks! natasha@timeink.com
  4. Hi, I have been using retrospect for all my backups. I *believe* I can't use any other CD drive, other than the one I used (an external CD-R) to burn the CD's with in order to retrieve the information? I can't read any of the backup CD's when I put them in to my regular CD drive on my Wallstreet, G3 laptop running RE 4.1A. I am getting a new computer with a CD RW inside and would like to get rid of my old external drive... but can't because I need to be able to access my old backups. Any advice would be much appreaciated? How can I read my old CD backups from a new internal CD drive? (can info. be transfered onto new medium?) Is there a way to do this with a newer version of RE? Also.. I'm getting the new G4 - 800mhz powerbook. Will RE be compatible with either using the 9.2 OS or OSX and writing to the built in CD RW that comes on that machine? or do I have to find a different backup software?
