Retrospect can't see drive connected with PCI firewire card


Recommended Posts

I installed 10.2 on a PM G3 with a Keyspan PCI firewire card. System Profiler can see the card, but Retrospect Workgroup 5.1 can't see the attached LaCie AIT firewire drive. With OS 9, Apple had a special driver for this card. Does anyone know how I can get backup working with OS X?

 

TIA,

 

Susan

Forget Retrospect. Forget the card.

- Does the drive show up in /Volumes/ under OS X?

- Can you drag files to the drive and have them copy?

 

Retrospect sees drives the same way the Finder does.

 

- What exactly are you doing?

LaCie's website states that there is no driver needed for the tape drive under OS X. Keyspan's website states that there is no driver needed for the PCI/firewire card under OS X.

 

To clarify my previous post: I can't see the AIT drive under System Profiler, but I can see the PCI/firewire card.

 

No, the tape drive doesn't show up under Volumes.

 

The tape drive is connected properly, and was used immediately before the OS X upgrade.

 

Any ideas?

My bad; missed that it was a tape drive, and not a hard drive.

 

But if it doesn't show up in System Profiler, Retrospect's not going to see it, either.

 

Apple pulled the 10.2.8 updae for a reason (or many reasons). Hopefully they'll have a fix soon, or else you may want to do an Archive Install of a lower version of Mac OS X.
