Can not back up to LaCie external firewire


Recommended Posts

After having numerous difficulties backing up from a hard drive on an iMac G5, I put aside two Maxtor One Touch external firewire drives, one of which was a replacement for the first one. I had numerous issues from Retrospect stalling halfway, without even the ability to force quit ( had to unplug), to the drive unmounting and not being recognized, and TechTool and Disk Warrior encountered problems. I had NO problem backing up to an old 20 gig LaCie drive.

 

So, I bought a new 160 gig LaCie d2, and tried to back up. Below, is what I got in the report:

I do not even know what this means, or what to do about it. Is the problem on the HD? I ran diagnostics on the internal HD and no problems were found. I have "ignore ownership" unchecked on the LaCie. I am at my wit's end, at this point! Leslie
