Write procted message


Recommended Posts

In attempting to backup my hard drive, I get as far as window "Backup Set A". Upon clicking "Proceed", get message "The disk is write protected. Please unlock and try again."

 

My setup:

Retrospect Express 4.3 Mac INT

MAC OS 9.2.2

LaCie CD-RW 52x24x52

Maxwell CD-R Pro 48x disks

Fire Wire connection

I have been running Retrospect 5.1 for several years on my G4 Mac without major problems, but lately I get an "Incompatible (unknown CD/DVD)" message when I insert a disk for backup. If I select "Proceed" the message "The disc is write protected. Please unlock it and try again" appears.

I have tried different mfr. disks new and used but nothing works. Am I missing something - is there a simple way to unlock a disc?

 

This is the same problem as message #60429. but I don't see an answer to the question

 

Thanks,

Gordine
