Any Word on Duel-Adapter/Snow Leopard Compatibility?
on Sep 29, 2009 at 5:01:13 am

By any chance, does anyone have some idea of when Duel Systems will be coming out with a driver for Snow Leopard compatibility? I've been holding off on the upgrade for my MBP and Quicktime X is getting more and more tempting.

Thanks!

If you would really like to use Snow Leopard, get yourself an external Hard Drive and do a clean install including the apps you would like to use. This will allow you to boot in both your current OS and SL.

As far as drivers, hopefully within 6 months.

I understand it's even less compatible on Snow Leopard as it is on Leopard.

Along with a lot of other hardware/software. Update to Snow Leopard at your own risk or use a dual boot system.

Duel is saying it's not happening.

Well that's awful.

I've done some research and came across this... What do we think??

I don't know the company too well. Does anyone have experience with them?

Most likely will not work with P2 with Leopard or Snow Leopard. I've tried a variety of Express34 to PCMCIA adapters and the only one that is compatible with P2 is the Duel Adapter.

Yup...

I spoke to Duel last night and apparently they can't write a driver for Snow Leopard because Apple won't give them the information and hasn't since the original Leopard came out. Apparently Apple wrote it for Leopard and doesn't want to do it again for Snow Leopard.

To say that this is a mere inconvenience to all P2 and Mac users is a severe understatement. It feels as if Apple is turning its back to a major professional market that has relied on and supported them as much as every other professional market does. For FCP laptop users, Apple knows that we have no alternatives. Besides of course, using a Duel with Avid on a PC. And to take that route, we may not even need a Duel.

I will continue my relentless search for a working alternative. If I find anything I will of course share the wealth.

End of rant.
