why do I get a disc error when draging files from my recording drive to a 2 gig jaz drive.
The only whey it will work is if I open the session up in Pro Tools and then copy save the
entire session into the Jaz drive?
wondering if FWB would help if I reformated the discs.
I'll never trust Jaz discs again !
One particular disc drove me crazy a few months ago, by never mounting. The data
was ProTools sessions backup, and I had 2 songs on it !!
Last week, I gave it a hopeless try ... and it worked !!! Too bad: the album is now mixed and released!! I hate Jaz !
For your particular problem, rebuild desktop and zap Pram if it's not done yet ..
Can you copy from Jaz to HD ? If you can't, maybe your Jaz sould be reformatted
found the answer!
I asked this question on the DUC and dc answered it dead on. I tried it and no problems now. Also read DON"T LOW LEVEL THEM!
Emailed Danny to ask him to support RO but his email didn't work so I'm putting on myself.
I can't understand why Iomega says they are Ultrawide - yet ship them with 50pin connectors. I've never seen a wide device which didn't have a 72 pin connector.
You really don't have to initialize a Jaz with FWB to avoid finder crashes. You can use FWB to "force mount" HDT drivers. Put the jaz in, open HDT, select the jaz in devices, hold opt-command, click on dismount (twice, I don't know why you have to do this with Jaz), let go of opt-command, mount drive.
The jaz disk will then operate with FWB drivers and won't give you that annoying crash when copying to/from other FWB drives.
I remember that dc quote. Using that info, I forcemounted my FWBed jazz disks, then reformatted with the apple drivers (Special ->Erase Disk -> Reformat). From that point on transfering data to the jazz was no longer a problem. The only thing extra I do now is make sure the Desktop Directory is built properly before I use them. Alsoft's Diskwarrior is what I use for that. The same thing applies with ORB drives. Thanks to the advice from Noiz2 from the DUC, I do the same thing with those disks.
About the 50 pin vs. 72 pin thing. I wondered the same thing so I placed the jazz at the end of the SCSI chain on my ATTO card. It didn't work any better than the narrow, built-in SCSI. In fact, it seemed slower.
Thanks for RO,
