“Unknown Status”

Recommended Posts

I recently moved a Yamaha CRW2200E CD burner from an external FireWire case to an internal IDE bus in my old PowerTower Pro 225 Mac clone running OS9.1. I had been successfully backing up with this drive in the external case using Retrospect 4.3. Now, when I insert the backup CD for recording, I get an “unknown status” message accompanied by a padlock. When I scan devices, Retrospect recognizes the drive. Also, the Apple System Profiler and Roxio Toast 5.1.4 can see the drive and recognize an inserted readable disk (e.g., a System Software disk; not, of course, the Retrospect backup disk, which is not readable). The Finder mounts an inserted readable disk without difficulty.




What’s wrong?
