I've recently been getting numerous hardware error messages when trying to
write files to my Yamaha 400t (using a Mac Power PC beige mini tower and
Adaptec Toast), but no problems in burning audio cds. Not having updated
the drives rom in many years, I thought that might help with this problem.
When I attempted to update to firmware Version 1.0q the drive froze with
both amber lights on continuously (not flashing). I can't seem to get the
drive un-frozen and recognized by my Mac (operating system 8.6).
My hardware set-up is obviously quite old, but financial issues have kept
me from upgrading. I'd hate to have to buy another external scsi drive,
when the next Mac that I purchase (hopefully soon) will come equipped with
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated. Please reply via e-mail as well as
to this group.
Thank you in advance.
