New Kona driver and ATTO
on Oct 23, 2006 at 7:02:07 pm

I've updated my UL5D driver from ATTO to allow for larger ram and loaded the new Kona 10/13 driver as well. Since then I've been experiencing random system freezes. Anyone have any experience with similar updates and issues?

I had some of those issues with the 3.1 driver when first installed. An uninstall, restart, delete the Kona Package in Library > Receipts, shut down & wait 10 seconds, Reinstall latest drivers, restart, fixed my problem.

Are you still on the G5 in your profile?

Jeremy,

I will go and update my profile next but I have migrated two systems to the Mac Pros. Good call. I know we'd talked about Mac Pro issues recently. The RAM passes the hardware test as that was my first thought. When working properly the system really speeds up with the extra memory I must say. As well, I'm still have the annoying crackle in the audio and have to stop and start playback until it goes away.

Pull RAM down to 2GB until ATTO updates their drivers.

Yep, we've had that on all our Kona systems since V 2.0 of the Kona drivers came out. Can't seem to track down where that comes from.

Nope, gone round and round with tech support and nothing they suggest makes it go away. Had it burn me bad on a review DVD for a network recently.

I'm on this boat, too! Funny how AJA is working with us on new additions but they can't seem to get rid of an old issue that bugs us really bad. So far, (knock on wood) I haven't had it bite me in the butt on output.

I chalk it up to "one of those things." annoying yes, but doesn't stop the workflow. I just never listened to output when I was making a DVD dub off the timeline and the audio crackled through the entire 45 minute show.

Lesson learned, but I would not knock AJA in the least. It has never affected Edit to Tape, only playback off the timeline.

Don't get me wrong, Walter. I'm not knocking AJA, just frustrated that this issue has not been resolved. And I imagine that AJA feels the same as you, therefore, its a low priority fix.

How much RAM do you have installed and is it installed properly? There's an issue with more than 2GBs of RAM and atto.

Also, make sure you read this to see if your ram is in the MacPro correctly:

Yes the crackle, what do you use for an audio d/a?

Jeremy,

I could not really understand the chart. I have 2 1 gig sticks in riser 1 and 4 512 sticks in riser two. Melrose Mac said they'd exchange the 4 512s for 2 1 gigers if I need to. What do you think?

According to that chart, you should have the two 1Gbs in Riser 1, two of the 512s in riser 2 then 2 of the 512s in Riser 1. In summary:

Riser 1: 2-1GB sticks then 2-512 sticks.

Riser 2: 2-512 sticks.

If you swap the 4-512 sticks for 2-1Gb sticks, then put those in Riser 2.

Confusing, but does this make sense?

On second look, I would definitely trade in your 4 512s for 2 1GB and then your riser pairs will match (2 in A, 2 in B)

it does appear the ATTO has updated their drivers for MacPros:

[JeremyG] "it does appear the ATTO has updated their drivers for MacPros:"


What weed have you been smokin'? Those have been around for a while and allowed us to use the ATTO cards with our MacPros BUT they are not the corrected drivers to allow more than 2.5 gig of RAM.

Because Wayne keeps hogging it!

Yeah, those drivers are old and we actually removed the ATTO / Fibre array from our workflow for the moment because it was just getting ridiculous running 2GB RAM.

you guys need to go to IBC...

Amsterdam can solve that problem Jeremy. Wayne could not possibly hog it all..

and the brownies are better ( but the milk is not the same.)

I agree.

I love the smell of Amsterdam in the morning.

How does anyone at IBC get anything done?

Try removing RAM. Have you tested to see if your RAM is good? Sounds like you might have a bad RAM module. Use Apple's Hardware Test that came with your computer's CD that contains OSX.

This is the new ATTO driver as of Friday. I spoke with ATTO as well and supposedly there is no limit to the amount of ram anymore.
