It appears that there are serious problems writing or reading to tape drives connected to the OEM U2B”. Posted April 15, Further to my previous post, I am also doing a hard disk to hard disk back up right now under os X. I have no intention of attaching any backup device to this drive. My feeling is that Dantz did not finish the drivers for this card under OS Xin the release of 5. I have definite thoughts about getting a VXA firewire tape drive. This is pointing more and more to a Dantz tape driver issue than an issue with the hardware.

The Preview worked fine for this, although it had trouble re-building catalogs from CD-R backup sets. The following text came directly from the Adaptec URL below: I just want to know if Retrospect 5 can backup and restore hard drives connected to this card–which is a very different question.

The vendor is saying don’t use this card under OSX, so how could a hard drive communicate properly across this card? How can a piece of essentially Apple supplied hardware, which is otherwise supported in OS X, be unsuppored in the final commercial release of Retrospect. Posted April 19, Hell, it’s a peice of Apple supported hardware. It appears that there are serious problems writing or reading to tape drives connected to the OEM U2B.
That’s all we want to know. Anyway, as far as I can tell, there are no problems with the U2B if the card is 22940u2b used to communicate with a back-up device.

The time now is Further to my previous post, I am also doing a hard disk to hard disk back up right now under os X. I was already aware of the information on Adaptec’s site.
