I have been going around in different forums for a solution to my problem.
Nothing to do with the spanking new hardware sold these days.

We used to backup everything to an external Dynatek DAT drive using 4mm 12-24Gb DDS3 tapes to our G4. The day came when the drive failed. No problem we moved to a DLT Tapes and life went on and on.
Now, of course we need to retrieve something that was only backed-up on DAT Tapes. Of course!!!

My way out is to find a refurbished Dat DDS3 drive working on a Mac platform.
If we had PC's it would'n t be a problem since there is plenty of refurbished Drives available on the net. Not so for Mac compatible drives.
I installed Retrospect 5 on a PC thinking I will simply buy a HP drive, but the catalog file copied from the Mac doesn't show up in the PC Retrospect.

No easy way out.
Suggestions! Names! Codes! Stores! Item to sell!
Thank you.

You are right.
I added the extension and the file shows up in Retrospect.
However Iget the message that "this is not a catalog or the file is heavily damaged".
It did work though on the Mac, as I could search and find through the catalog.
Sigh!

Thanks anyhow.
