Retrospect: recognizes Pioneer A04, but not A06 drive

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Stephen O. Lidie, Nov 20, 2003.

  1. My new G5 has an A06 DVD drive, but Retrospect does not see it, whereas
    the A04 of my previous machine was useable. Is there a patch or update
    that I haven't found so RS (5.0.238) can be used?

  2. There's 5.1 which runs on Jaguar and Pather. Perhaps you should upgrade
    to that...

  3. Get Retrospect 5.0 Driver Update 3.6.106 (or later). It works under
    Jaguar, but I haven't tested it under Panther. Also, I don't know
    whether it works with the A06 drive, but it does work with the A05 drive
    in my iMac. Without this driver update, Retrospect doesn't recognize
    the A05 drive.

    The final driver upgrade to 5.0.238 Outlook Express (which I am using)
    does support the A05 and my older USB CD burner but probably not the A06
    which came out later. You probably have to upgrade to 5.1.

    How is 5.1 working for you in Panther? I'll upgrade if you say it's OK ;)

    I have Panther but have not yet installed it. I plan to check the
    Retrospect forums before I do.
