DOM Disc Writer on macOS

Post by Kewl »

Hi,

I tried Disc Writer 2.15.183 on macOS 12.1, but I get this error:

When there's no error, what does Disc Writer do? Does it format to MBR NTFS? Does it format to ext2? On macOS, is it able to write to NTFS or ext2?

Thanks,

Daniel

It writes linux formatted ext2 drives. That's the whole idea behind DCP-o-matic Disc Writer, as there are working other solutions for NTFS.

Ah, thanks. I was looking for that info, but, apparently, didn't look hard enough...

Do you have an idea why I get the error message?

That error message means that the writer looked at the disk and decided it shouldn't write to it for some reason - it's probably a bug. You should have some files

Code: Select all

/var/log/dcpomatic_disk_writer_err.log
/var/log/dcpomatic_disk_writer_out.log
If you could post them here or send them to carl@dcpomatic.com I can take a look.

Carl, I tried on another macOS computer: failed, but with a different error. I'll send you the log.

It would be great if you could try this test version to see if it works any better.

Thanks, but it didn't work. I tried on the iMac and the Mac Pro. Sending you the log.
