10.4: A possible fix for Software Update failures
Authored by: artMonster on Jul 08, '05 11:45:43AM

On an iMac G5 Rev A, I have found that when a connected Firewire LaCie d2 Extreme HD is turned off (with the switch on the front of the drive), Software Update hangs until I turn the drive on. The same with Disk Utility, it gets stuck on "Gathering disk information until I turn on the LaCie... it works ok if I let the drive automaticaly power on and off.

Same thing with me. I had a firewire disk attached to my computer, but the disk was turned off. As soon as I unplugged the firewire cable, software update started working again.
