|Status of (Ximeta) NDAS Drivers for OS X|
Some readers asked if I knew about any Lion compatible driver update for NDAS drives that were sold by OWC/NewerTech and others. I wasn't sure if there were any later drivers (or work on them) as I think they were EOL'd some time back but asked OWC. Here's the reply:
This is the current status: (from Ximeta drivers page)
(last mac post there dated Aug 24, 2011)
"MAC OSX Lion and 10.6.7, 10.6.8 Release
NDAS for Snow Leopard 10.6.7 & 8 and for MAC Lion has become unstable.
Development has been notified and IOCELL Networks is in the process of reviewing the required updates."
(Below that they also note)
"If you would like to be notified of developments and release of the next NDAS for MAC,
please send an email to support.
To join the development team, please use the contact form."
(active email/form links are on the ximeta page)
Almost 7 months since that last post date. As of today the latest (not new) Mac downloads are NDAS software v1.8.4 for OS X Snow Leopard 32bit ("until version 10.6.6") and OSX 10.3 - 10.5. (Farther down there are older/previous versions.) Added this to the Mac user reports on NAS page also.
