Bacchus28 Posted April 9, 2008 Report Share Posted April 9, 2008 I have a brand new PCI-X SCSI card - ATTO model EPCI UL4S - SINGLE CHANNEL, ULTRA320, PCI-X SCSI HOST ADAPTER (as recommended by REtrospect compatability page) in my Dual G5 PowerMac (running OS X 10.5)and it is attached to an external OEM DDS4 DAT Drive which I used to have on my old Dual G4 PowerMac. It worked on the G4, although I can't go back and re-test as I've sold that box. The problem is that although Apple Profiler sees the card and driver in each of the slots - yep, I tested them all - Retrospect (Retrospect 6.1 with latest update and drive installed) can't see the device. It doesn't even seem to see the SCSI bus. It seems to scan the internal ATA bus but NOT the SCSI bus (unless it happens so quickly that no feedback is given in the pop-up window that appears while a scan is happening.) I've used Retrospect and SCSI cards for years from back in the days of 200Mb DSC tapes, so I'm pretty sure I have it configured correctly. I've tried several different SCSI addresses, including the one I used on the old G4. Retrospect has been doing backups to an external Firewire 800 drive until I decided to go back to DAT tape as I miss the security of being able to store data off-site; also spending AU$500 on a SCSI card was a hard decision - one that hasn't born fruit to date :confused2: Any ideas?
