pchernoff Posted April 6, 2002 Report Share Posted April 6, 2002 I am unable to make a successful backup to my Sony Spressa CRX145E Fireware CD-RW. I am currently using Retrospect Desktop 5 under Mac OS X 10.1.3. It backs up but I then get many, many erros in the verification log, as below: - 3/26/2002 10:14:54 AM: Copying Desktop Folder on Mac OS 9.2… 3/26/2002 10:19:37 AM: Comparing Desktop Folder on Mac OS 9.2… Bad backup set header found (0x08070703 at 132).

Bad backup set header found (0x4f535400 at 92,594). Bad backup set header found (0xfcffffff at 92,636). And so on. I would say that I am seeing an almost 100% failure rate. I also had a high failure rate with Retrospect Express 4.2 under Mac OS 9.x. I have been unable to borrow a different drive for comparison sake, and saw someone else on this forum stating a problem with a Sony Spressa CD-RW. This drive works perfectly under Toast Titanium, but I understand it is using packet-writing methods under Retrospect. Is anyone aware of problems with this drive, other tests I can make, or anything else. When I called Dantz in the past they didn't have any helpful advice and didn't know of any problems with the Sony Spressa. Of course, spending $100 for a software upgrade doesn't get me any techinical support, so i was hoping that someone here might be able to provide me with a clue.
