More on 2010 MacBook Pro ExpressCards Not Working in OS X 10.9 (13A603)
I've updated Thursday's reports on 2010 MacBook Pro ExpressCards Not Working in OS X 10.9 (13A603) with another reader report and a follow-up from the first reader to note the problem with the 2010/MacBook Pro 6,1 model. (Also includes Firmtek's comments on their test results - they said the 2009/2011 models don't seem affected.)
More on OS X 10.9/WD Drive Manager/Raid Manager/WD SmartWare Problems
Thursday's Warning to Users of WD Drive Manager/Raid Manager/SmartWare on OS X 10.9 Problems updated to include WD's revised announcement that includes customer support/contact info. To save you a click, here's the revised announcement and links to WD Forums Threads on problems in OS X Mavericks and reminder on the original Apple forum thread on Mavericks corrupts external hard drives which is still growing, with some user notes on removing WD software (where's WD's uninstaller/info?) and some comments on data recovery software. (Forum thread started in Oct. 24th is 12+ pages as of Nov 1st. Although not all are WD users, many were.)
