Retrospect 5.0 and SDT-5000

Recommended Posts





I have been using Retrospect 4.0 on a Mac G3 with a SCSI Tape Drive


(Sony model SDT-5000) under MAC OS system 9 for several years with


no problem.




Installed System 10 and the New Retrospect 5.0 and now the Tape Drive


nor any other disk on the SCSI chain can be seen by retrospect. The hard


drives show up on the desktop and can be accessed normally for file


operations, but retrospect Devices Info cannot see them.




In attempted backup operation, Retrospect complains it cannot see the


tape drive.




Hardware diagnostics show a properly terminated and operating SCSI chain.


The SDT-5000 is a qualified device. Any thought on what is happening


here ?




I'd appreciate any suggestion.
