Mac G3, OS 9.1,
Ext Drives: 2 ZIPs via Scsi
1 HD via FireWire

I upgraded from 2.56 . because the 3.5.2 description promised to look at my firewire.

It doesn't.

So, for me. this is NO BETTER than ver 2.56!

I have a call into their Tech Dept- if they help out, I'll gladly post another retraction to this.

I'm the same guy who complained that Anubis 3.5.2 could not 'see' my FireWire HD.


To Charismac's credit- I DID get a response from their Tech department (couple of hours). That in itself will cause me to shop there in hte future! :)

The fix was- Disable all other extensions, that show FireWire's status. This ment disabling hte original FireWire Display extension. Yes- this worked.


However, while 3.5.2 DOES now see ALL the external drives (SCSI and FireWire) , 3.5.2 displays very little info about the firewire drive. The original firewire extension displayed much more.

So I had to choose.

I wish I did NOT have to.

I tried Anubis from OCW. I found it strange that OCW was sending out it's own version of Anubis. The product I got was even on a regular CD-R with a label saying OCW Anubis on it. And you can see the Sony CD-R underneath the label.
This product is slow and cumbersome. Sometimes locking up the system. I havent seen the disk fix it part of this program. So far all I have seen is a formatter and a Partitioner and an Disk Initializer. But not a problem fixer. Norton's System Works to date has worked the best for me.

This Anubis 3.21 updater is password protected making it useless.

I only knew of Anubis, because a "lite" version came with my OrangeMicro SCSI PCI card. I'm a big fan now, Anubis saved me when HDT and OS9 didn't get along, but Apple's own formatting software would recognize my external SCSI drive.

It's simple and straightforward - though all formatting software I've tried requires some complexity to offer 3rd party drive support and configurations.
