Re: WD Drive Manager doesn't work on Mac OS X LIon 10.7

I have seen the link above and installed that version. For me it does not fix it.

 

I had first installed the version from the cd and then installed the version you mention. When that did not work I did uninstall (hoping that this might remove some leftovers from the first version) and then reinstalled the new version.

 

So again does anyone know how to start the raid tool without the menu and does anyone else not see the menu or am I the only one?

Strange. I had the non working version installed and then installed the new 2.2.6 version and it worked again. The blue WD icon shows up in the menu bar.

 

Previously, in order to access the RAID Manager app itself, I had to navigate to the following place:

(Hard Drive Name)/Library/Application Support/Western Digital/WDDriveManager

 

I then made an alias to the Manager and moved the alias to my Applications folder.

What made the difference is that you did locate and run the raid tool before (or after) switching to the fixed version. When I did run it an additional file was created in the directory containing the raid tool and the menu appeared. After a reboot I do not have to run the raid manager again for the menu to appear. It appears that somehow the mentioned file required for the menu to appear and that it is not created when installing the fixed version over the faulty one. But running the raid manager once does create it and therefor also fixes the no-menu problem.

 

Thanks for your help.

Didn't realize that made a difference but good to hear you got it working.

Re: WD Drive Manager doesn't work on Mac OS X LIon 10.7

I've just got a new MyBook Studio Edition II and installed WD Drive Manager (2.2.6) on OSX Lion and it works fine.

 

The only strange thing I experienced was that once I installed the 64-bit TURBO+ drivers then WD Drive Manager stopped recognising my drive (I could still access the actual drive fine for file access/copying, but couldn't see/manage it in WD Drive Manager).

 

Anyway I did some file transfer speed tests and the TURBO+ drivers seem to be a waste of time anyway so I uninstalled them rebooted and WD Drive Manager is happy again.....
