My brand new Drobo (2nd Gen) came with Dashboard 1.6.8 and it will see and interact with my Drobo over Firewire with zero issues. But when I update to Dashboard 1.7.3, Dashboard sees nothing. “Waiting for Connection”…
The Drobo mounts and works perfectly. I can use it from the Finder and Terminal with zero issues. Just the Dashboard 1.7.3 does not see it. Drobo is populated with 3 x 2TB 7200rpm drives. The drive works great - no problem with the drive at all.
I am back to Dashboard 1.6.8 which is working fine.
I’m running OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.5 and Drobo Firmware 1.3.7
Any ideas? Is this a known problem? Should I just stick like glue to 1.6.8 and ignore 1.7.3?
Any help or insight would be appreciated.
