DVD-R drive support


Recommended Posts

With prices falling on DVD-R media (1$ a disc), it looks quite attractive to use this format for backup.

Looking at DVD-R supported drives for Macintosh, I can only see one drive. Is there more to it?

 

Also, can one do an incremental backup on a disc? I have read elsewhere that DVD-R are not multi-session enabled.

Retrospect allows you to write multiple sessions to any disk until the disk is full.

 


 

To the best of my knowledge, this is NOT possible. I have many partially burned DVD-R sessions to prove that Retrospect will NOT add new session data after the first use of a DVD-R. DVD-RW must be erased to be rewritten.

Retrospect is specifically designed to write multiple sessions to a single disc. If you are having difficulty, it would be helpful to note your configuration:

 

OS, backup device make/model/interface, version of Retrospect, along with any error messages being generated when you attempt to append to a disc.

Has anyone had any luck with the QPS Que! 2i DVD+/-RW Firewire/USB2.0

external drive?

I've running OSX 10.2.8 on a powerbook G3 2000 (pismo) with Retrospect 5.1

installed, I tried the configuration utility, it went through the process and

told me it didn't work. It then sent the error log to Dantz --

I wanted to try the config again but I'm unwilling to waste 2 DVD-R's again.
