10.3: Install an older extension to fix broken USB drives
Authored by: Haukka on Jul 02, '04 08:52:34AM

I thought the problem was with the USB driver, but this explains a lot. However there is still no fix from Apple. I even went as far as downloaded the xnu and msdosfs sources for both 10.2.8 and 10.3.4, but there was far too many changed in the msdosfs code between those two to easilly figure out what the problem is, and I really dont have time to delve too deeply in to the code.

What is preventing IDG from releasing patches? The Apple OS Licence? (I admit, havent read it through with thought) How about just pointing in the right direction? I would really like to get this working as I need to move stuff between windows and my mac, and would like to use my USB-IDE harddrive for that. NTFS just wont do, as I cant write onto that, and I even had some trouble reading it (some files would show, and some not).
