OnStream USB

Recommended Posts

I've been using a OnStream 30GB USB ADR tape device with my Mac for the past year. Recently I've had to re-install the software on the Mac and now I can't get Retrospect to recognise the drive.




The USB version of this drive is not listed in the qualified devices????

The Onstream USB drive is qualified for use with Retrospect. If you search by Manufacturer in the pull down list, there are two entries for Onstream: Onstream and Onstream (with Freecom bridge). Using the later will find the results you are looking for.








The following notes were pulled from the device page for this drive:




It is recommended that users have Retrospect Driver Update 2.4 or later when using this drive. This driver update incorporates improvements which decrease the chances of encountering "error -206 (dirty heads, bad media)".




Required files on Macintosh OS 7.x through 9.x:




-Retrospect 4.3 and 5.x


-Retrospect SDAP Support extension


-Retrospect OnStream USB Support extension or Retrospect Freecom USB Support extension
