You installed a new hard drive into a slot on the ADAT and did not format the disc in the ADAT? That's your problem.

When you hook the drive to the Fireport, you will get a prompt to format it from your Mac. DON'T do that. Just ignore the drive, open the FST software that you should have installed, and the drive and it's contents will show up.

I am not hammerin' on you here, but all of this is very clear in the manual and Read Me documents on the software disc.

That's weird. I'm on 10.4.9 and I transferred some stuff thru my Fireport last night with FST Connect. I didn't notice anything different at all.

I wonder what the incompatibility is? I don't know that this is related though. Have you tried using Marc Brevoort's tools? They've helped me transfer files off damaged HDDs that FST Connect wouldn't read properly.

That's what I was telling you... There IS NO fix for 10.4.9!... yet. just keep checking their site... eventially it will get done and posted. Until then.. you gotta ftp in.

Hi everybody...

Finally i'd decide to install the OS 10.4.7 without update the OS software in the 2nd slot H.Drive (i'm using PPC G5) to browse my FST and Export the wave files into my 1st slot H.Drive and Do every Editing work in OS 10.4.9!!

Now work long as the 2nd slot available to share the capacity while i boot my 10.4.9 1st slot think this is the most convinient way for me.

Hope it's help.

p/s: hope it's oso work in Partition H.Drive which in a Single Drive.
