jlw Posted June 13, 2002 Report Share Posted June 13, 2002 I just installed the Retrospect 5.0 Driver Update (released yesterday and 'recommended for all Retrospect users') and found that I could no longer add to my archive CD set! Background: I use Retrospect 5.0 Server to do nightly backups (to a Firewire drive) and also to archive completed jobs to CDs (using my Quicksilver Mac's built-in Pioneer DVD/CD-RW drive, since the LaCie CDBP-401248A drive I bought -- mistakenly thinking it was compatible -- actually isn't.) So, this morning I downloaded the RDU file, applied it as recommended, and found that Retrospect's Devices tab suddenly could see botyh the Pioneer built-in and the LaCie external. Hoping this meant that the LaCie would now work, I tried to add to an existing archive CD set with it. No luck -- Retrospect would report "no media" even though a CD was in the LaCie drive. So I went back to using the internal Pioneer drive. The archiving session continued normally while I added files to the last CD of my set. But when Retrospect requested a new CD to continue the session, and I put one in, it responsed with a message saying that 'the media is too different from other members of the set' and refused to continue. I quit Retrospect, removed the RDU file, restarted Retrospect (to 'un-update' it) and things were back to normal -- the LaCie drive doesn't even show up in the Devices tab, but at least now I'm able to use the Pioneer drive and add CDs to my set. So, this update was a step backward rather than a step forward for me. I figured I'd better post this in case someone else encounters the same type of problem.
