Does your drive have the oxford 911 chipset? Also, make sure you have ONLY the apple Firewire drivers installed.

Im having the same problems with a Maxtor External, MBox, IBook G3 and ProTools LE.
Try un-installing the driver software for the drive that the drive came with, throw the icon for that drive in the trash, empty the trash, reboot, do a disk erase on the drive..because you might not be able to initialize it from MAC and then see if you still get the error.
I still get the error......also try kicking up the memory for the DAE folder to about 80.........other than that I dont know what to tell ya. I sent email to Digidesign describing the problems and have not heard back yet what to do about it...I've tried a zillion different things to get this to work but have not had success...I get the error when I try to record....even if I do it on the internal drive and I have that other drive plugged in I will get the error...

I am having the same problem as well. my firewire drive does not have the oxford chip set, but it worked for a short while. i also sent an email to digi support and am waiting for a reply.

when i reformatted the drive on another rig running HD, the drive would record 32 tracks of audio simultaneeously w/ no problem. on my G3 w/ LE nothing doing.

why do you suggest using apple drivers for the hard drive?

i can't get the mac drive tool to recognize the firewire hd so i'm not sure how to accomplish that.

good luck all, and post when you find a solution. i'm hesitant to pop another couple bills for a new drive and i don't want to go scsi. it's a bind.

I had this same problem with my EZQuest drives a few months ago, and here's what I got from DigiDesign support.

Some third-party firewire drivers are not, as Digi put it "ProTools friendly". This means their formatting software does something that makes PT think the drive is either full or incredibly fragged.

The cure is to re-format with the Mac drivers. However, as some of you stated, my Mac wouldn't see the drives. The solution I stumbled across was to find a plain, vanilla driver to use for formatting that ProTools likes. The one I use is DiskControl 1.01, and came with some old Glyph drives I had earlier.

A lot of new firewire drives are shipping with a driver called Hard Disk Speed Tools. Do not install this puppy. If you have, go to your extensions folder and disable all it's components before you try another driver.

Good luck.
