DVD-RAM works but not DVD-R

Recommended Posts

From Device Status:


ID: FireWire-A




Product: DVD-RAM SW-9571


Version: A111


Driver: FireWire




Powermac G4 AGP Graphics


MacOSX Server 10.1.4


Retrospect Server 5.0.238


Device: Lacie Multi Recorder (300568) external Firewire Drive




I have two backup sets. One I would like to backup to DVD-RAM and the other to DVD-R. The DVD-RAM backup works fine, but when I attempt the DVD-R backup, my DVD drive is not listed, and when I insert a blank DVD, OSX sets it up but Retrospect does nothing.




Why would Retrospect work with one DVD type with my drive and not the other?




Thank you.

This drive is not yet supported in Retrospect with DVDR/RW or CDR/RW media. Your best bet is to download a trial version of Retrospect 5.1 and use the CD/DVD autoconfiguration utility. Please post if you get this to work as there are other people asking about this drive.
