Are Sony AIT tape drives compatible with the ATTO UL5D in a Intel-based MAC-Pro or X-Serve?

Answer:

ATTO Tech Support has found that with the release of MAC OS 10.4.10, there has been a number of reported problems accessing tape drives with EMC Retrospect and other backup programs. These usually materialize as system freezes or backups hang. This has been reported mostly with LTO3 and Sony AIT-4 or AIT-5 tape drives, but may happen with other types also.

ATTO has implemented a work around for this in the OS X SCSI driver version 4.20 or greater. This driver is available on the ATTO downloads page.
