Got a new AD-7201A to replace the crappy Pioneer that came with my Mac G5 thinking that it would be an easy plug-and-play since Apple is using Optiarc drives in the newer desktops. Wrong.
It's messing with all apps that have to do with drives (including Disk Utility) and won't allow the computer to shut down. Firmware is 1.06 which seems to be the latest version. Was set to Master when I got it, I tried setting it to cable select as the Pioneer is but nothing changed.
Anyone have any suggestions? I really don't want to have to send the drive back.
Mac G5 running 10.4.11 with the AD-7201A on the ATA bus.
Any chance that upgrading to OS 10.5 would help?
