10.5.2 Retrospect control of DVD Drive

Recommended Posts

I am running Retrospect 6.1.138 driver update on a Mac Pro (early 2008) Mac OS 10.5.2. I've noticed that while Retrospect is running, I cannot used the DVD drive (OPTIARC AD-7170A). The eject key does nothing and the device shows as busy under Disk Utility. When I quit Retrospect, the drive works as it should.


I don't use the DVD drive for backups. I use external Firewire drives or recently a NAS.


The same software on a G4 (iMac) does not completely take control of the DVD drive.


I normally run retrospect in the background on it's own user account and forget it's there. It just does it's job.


Is there any way to change this behavior on the Mac Pro?
