New Firewire drive content damaged

Recommended Posts

Have been running Retrospect 6 on OSX 10.3.9 for a long time using external Firewire drives as the back-up media. All Lacie drives below 1 Tb capacity. Just came to the end of disk 6 in one set and Retrospect is asking for a new empty drive to be number 7. So I've mounted a brand new 1.8 Tb Lacie formatted as Mac OS extended with nothing on it. Retrospect tries to start using it but keeps coming back with an error 209 Media Content Damaged message. Have erased several times but no joy. I have a second brand new empty 1.8 Tb Lacie and have tried that one as well, with the same results. I've never encountered this problem before and can find no info on it. Does anyone know if this could be due to some sort of limit on the capacity of the disk drive ?


Thanks in hope !
