hi!

 

i'm having a problem on retrospect 5.1 latest version on mac osx panther. it tells me (after i configured the internal drive in my powerbook successfully) that for the old projects archive the media are to different from the other members in the archive. it doesn't want to write anything on it although it just finished one such cd and i just configured it to these media. any ideas how i can proceed in working with this archive?

 

thanks.

Hi

 

Are you switching between CDR and CDRW media? That can cause these kinds of errors.

 

Did you write these disks with Retrospect 5.1 before you ran the autoconfiguration? If so, can you explain why you needed to run the auto configuration?

 

Thanks

Nate

Hi

 

 

 

Be sure to get rid of any .rdi files that are in your Retrospect preferences or the Retrospect program folder. They may be fouling things up.

 

 

 

Your drive has native support in Retrospect 5.1 and above with the latest driver update installed. you can get the driver update from the Dantz updates page.

 

 

 

You don't need to run the drive configuration wizard.

I had a similar problem, with a drive that worked for a while then refused to work. The key thing here is to get rid of any old configuration rdl files, and then start a new backup set. This should allow you auto-configure the drive while doing your backup - don't configure the drive in the Tools tab window, it doesn't work.
