Does appear to work under 10.2 for me (Ti 667/512 MB, non-DVI). It supported a Yamaha CDRW8424 (at least to mount a CD, haven't tried burning yet), Toast 5.1.3 sees the drive (again, didn't burn), iTunes 3 did not (not too surprising). It also mounted an Iomega Jaz 2GB drive. I did notice that startup stalled after the gray apple and prior to the login when I had the card in by itself, so there may be an issue where the PB won't boot properly if the card is installed, but no cables/drives are connected. Ejecting the card and restarting solved that issue. More tests to try, but the initial results are positive.

This driver for Adaptec 1480 SCSI pcmcia card and Titanium 867 DVI work on Jaguar but not on Panther. Now with Tiger (10.4.3) it is OK - BUT the pkg downloaded (here or at Adaptec) is unusable - decompress give an empty folder. The Solutions is to copy .kext from a copy of the previous OS 10.2 install to the /System/Library/Extensions/ and changing mode to root (chown) and rights to drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel and now with VueScan and SCSI Dimage Scan Speed F-2800 I am able to scan 35mm slides without rebbooting in 10.2... Thanks to TIGER

I can't get the beta to load in OS X 10.3.3, looks like it is dead in the water?

Yes, Adaptec is providing a _beta_ for OSX version 10.0, as in "ten point nothing" also referred to as "no point at all" and "why bother." The SlimSCSI can be bought for five or ten dollars now on eBay, they're from the era before the dinosaur. They never did work, and Adaptec doesn't care. I bought mine when I bought my Pismo, on Apple dealer's advice, and it didn't work reliably then (one of the backup companies had it listed as a known corrupter of files, unreliable, shortly thereafter, along with other Adaptec products) and as far as I know, it's still that bad. I am, however, on Adaptec's "Notify Me" list -- under several different email addresses -- so I am, of course, sure they will let me know when they get it working. Seems they were having some problem that still has to be fixed -- most likely complete abandonment by management, eh?

It does not work under OS X 10.3 and Adaptes says they won't support any Mac products any further, so RIP. .m

I haven't seen anyone else posting about this on the Web, so I thought I'd let people know that I am still having *great* success with the SlimSCSI using the 1.0b1 drivers, now under 10.2.6. I use it consistantly with a Yamaha CDRW and full burning is supported in Toast (5.2) & iTunes 3. I have had no problems with the card, except that it does not like to be inserted or removed while the machine is running.Doing so resulted in my having to restart the machine. My machine specs are: Titanium 667, 512 MB RAM, various SCSI peripherals (but mostly the Yamaha burner).

Thanks for posting. I had given up on Adaptec after the earlier problems with disk corruption, seeing that they'd both dropped mention of the promised OSX compatibility and quit answering my email after a while. ("What, he's asking the engineers to deliver what Marketing advertised? Poor fool ....") was what I was imagining. Maybe Apple fixed something with new OSX releases? I'm at 10.2.8. Has anyone tried this and had good reliable results over a period of time, without any loss of data? I'll believe it for sure when Dantz adds this to the list of devices they consider reliable (or takes it off the list of devices they know lose data) - haven't looked there for six or eight months since the last disappointment.

Except for the kernel panic when removing the card this seems to work. I wonder why adaptec has dropped all mention of OS X compatability for the 1480 (which was promised) from their web site?

Well, hell, anybody need an Adaptec SlimSCSI, before I throw it in the electronics recycle bin? Adaptec's never going to keep their promise to support this thing.
