2 days ago I noticed my passport backups quit working. The drive had been working flawlessly with Lion since July up
I’ve tried both USB ports on my MBP mid 2010. Same problem. I’ve updated the firmware to the usb
drive. Didn’t help. I tried to install the turbo drivers but the installer just hangs.
The only way it will work now is if I turn off the computer. Unplug the drive. Start the computer, then
plug it in.
Interestingly enough, I can see the drive in Finder and browser the folders and files if I boot up with it plugged in
so I know it’s being read. It’s just not available for backups with either get backup 2 nor with Time Machine.
Also… the device shows up on my desktop if I plug it in after the OS boots but not if I boot up with it already
Thanks so much. Very frustrated.
