The time now is This is pointing more and more to a Dantz tape driver issue than an issue with the hardware. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. That is up to Adaptec.

As far as i remember it was only in the 2.

Last edited by Zaskar; at This process is taking longer than expected, but we do continue to work on it. I will try backing up to an UW hard disk connected internally to the board.

I just want them to tell us the extent of the incompatibility. Register a new account. I bought the Workgroup version because I still think I qdaptec have to run Server just to get reliable export of home directories.

So, my conclusion is that the issue is with Dantz not Apple or Adaptec. My feeling is that Dantz did not finish the drivers for this card under OS Xin the release of 5.

I just want to know if Retrospect 5 can backup and restore hard drives connected to this card–which is a very different question. BB code is On. The vendor is saying don’t use this card under OSX, so how could a hard drive communicate properly across this card?

Posted May 14, I agree that it is not Dantz’s responsibility to fix the driver. If you need to reset your password, click here. These drives work fine uner 2940k2b X.

This is consistent with the unsupported hardware list on dant’z web site. I will ask for a refund unless I get confirmation from Dantz that they WILL support the U2B in the near future with a date of when they expect an update.

I got kernel panic on my G3 with OS X It may well be that there are SCSI commands that relate only to communication with tape drives, or that are not used in communication with hard drives. I would look at it this way: It is unsupported but so-far so-good.

The time now is I suspect that Retrospect has problems writing to or reading from tape drives connected to this card; we have seen reports on this forum to that effect.

Perhaps they are the only ones whose sofware product is not compatible with this card; without access to facts, we can’t know. I finally bought the release version of Qdaptec.
