SDLT320 drivers for Mac

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a Quantum SDLT320 tape drive and much to my horror I find that Retrospect doesn’t support it yet on a Macintosh!


Can anyone give me a time frame for release of the Mac OS (OS 9.x.x or OS X) drivers?


Is there a beta version available?


I don’t want to have to exchange it for an SDLT220 (if that’s even possible).


Does anyone know how long it took Dantz to come out w/the SDLT220 driver after those started shipping?

Unfortunately, it's not possible to offer a timeline on device support.




Dantz goes through a rigorous qualification process with every drive we test. This means that not every drive will be qualified and we can never guarantee that a particular device will be supported. Sometimes the process is relatively short and the device can be qualified quickly. However, some drives do not get qualified ever, and some take 6 months to a year to get support. We have no way of telling when this drive will be supported or not at this moment.




We add device support often though, so do check back with our Hardware Compatibility list:
