I just hooked up my new gen 2 drobo, 2 1.5 TB green WD drives (WD15EADS), firmware latest, etc.
MacBook Pro 17, FW800 connection to Drobo (cable supplied w/Drobo), FW400 connection to Canon 8mm VDR.
iMovie 9, latest version.
Copying hi-8mm video to drobo will cause drobo to reset (all red lights), unmount, then remount. Needless to say this causes movie import to barf.
Same import to internal drive of Macbook, no issues.
Fluke? Known issue?
I bought Drobo for that warm and fuzzy feeling of “my data is protected”, don’t have that feeling yet especially when writing to my internal drive is fine and to the new Drobo causes a failure?
