I’m trying to get my Gen2 to work on M1 with Big Sur via FireWire 800. I am able to get it to successfully mount with a USB-C to Thunderbolt + Thunderbolt to FireWire 800 adapter, but I’m experiencing kernel panics about once an hour.
Alternately connecting via USB 2.0 is reasonably fast, but the Drobo Dashboard cannot see the device and the icon shows as a generic, orange USB device.
Any ideas? (other than getting a new device…)
