LaCie d2 U&I AIT compatibility

Recommended Posts

I have an brand new tape drive. We currently have Retro 4.3c backing up to a Sony SCSI AIT-1 drive just fine. I need to add a second tape drive to back up a seperate volume, and we got a (LaCie d2 AIT-1) U&I drive, planning on using it with the Firewire bus. The computer is a B&W G3 Server running ASIP 6.3.3, and OS 9.1.


Retro 5.x+ is out of the question as it has issues with the ASIP service.


Retro 4.3c, Dantz's site does list this U&I model as supported, in fact fully qualified. But I can't get it to recognize. There is something listed in the Apple System profiler, just a bunch of numbers really... but its realizing something is there.


I have tried the driver updates, and the ADK, and no dice.


I need to know is Dantz going to support this, is their site misprint, or what?

Fixed it. Talked to Dantz, and they were of some help. He emphisized the fact that I will need a driver from the manufacturer...


I checked LaCie's site again, and found something called LaCie_AIT_Tape_v649. Installed it, rebooted ,and Retrospect 4.3c finds the tape drive fine.
