Does NOT work for 10.1.x
Authored by: urcindalo on Mar 29, '02 05:57:43AM

This trick worked for 10.0.x, but not for 10.1.x. I haven't been able to use my ORB disks ever since.
Any ideas?

I think 10.1 reinstalls the Adaptec2906-30.kext file. If you can find it, make id die and you should get your ORB back.

I had the same problem with my Adaptec 2906 card. Adaptec would not help me as I had an "OEM" card. Their driver in the Mac OS X section at their web site did not work. I tried one from
apple.com>Mac OS X>Drivers but it was the same. Then I found there were two drivers in the Drivers list. I used the second driver from the top and it goes to another place in the Adaptec site. REMOVE the 2906 driver from the folder, you may have to do it from OS 9, so the install works. If you try to replace the driver it will say it has been installed, but it hasn't. Good luck.

Back to the fray. I backed up my OS X volume with Retro 5.0. When I re-installed OS X my ORB would not mount so I could restore the backup.. I spent much time juggling Adaptec drivers to find the right combination to remount the ORB through my 2906, "OEM", zero tech support, card. What finally worked was putting all the 2906 and 2930 extensions into an "Untitled Folder" and then ta da, it worked. Very strange. In OS X v10.0 to v10.0.4 there was no 2906 or 2390 extension, just a 78xxx one, and the ORB mounted there. May be some day Adaptec will get their act together. Have a nice weekend.
