hi folks

a warning to any really early adopters out there. Apple has just put out a big warning of incompatibility between Panter (OS 10.3 just out) and some Firewire 800 disks. All disc data can be lost.

I've just checked on the lacie site, and FW 400 disks are not affected.

Actually I think they are, or at least some FW400 drives are becouse the LaCie FW drive I use at work starting losing data, even after using the updates from the LaCie site. I've backed everything up and don't use the drive now, its quite old in computer years, and as I am getting a nice G5 kit (see 'building acollege FCP suite' on the forum) I wont be using the FW drive anymore

We ran into issues and data loss when upgrading from 10.2.8 to 10.3.0, and had to do a very nasty horrible downgrade which cost us lots of time, effort and money. My 17"Ti was fine, but our Silver Bullet was NOT.

However, time is a great healer, and I recently completed a full upgrade to FCP4HD and 10.3.3 on the Silver Bullet. All rules still applied until I hit 10.3.3: all FW drives updated to latest versions BEFORE upgrade started, no FW devices attached during installation and upgrade. Still, when power-cycled Silver Bullet 10.3.3 with FW drive attached, aforementioned drive was fully backed up!

No problems since, and now fully enjoying benefits of 10.3 and FW800.
