My machine crashed today. I need to rebuild the Boot Drive. I have CD's for 10.2 but would like to upgrade to the latest version. Media 100 says it can run on a 10.3 system. Is anyone using it with 10.4?

Thanks
Daryl

Yes, I'm using OS 10.4 with Media 100 8.2.2. I just finished a couple of short projects on it, and everything worked fine, even on my ancient G4 733.

If you have a running system, do yourself a favor and get a cheap internal or FireWire drive and clone your system drive to that before installing the Update. Then you can get back to a working system if there is a problem with OSX 10.4

I think others on this list reported using Media 100i (8.2.2) with OS 10.4. It's certainly working fine for me. However, as they say, your mileage may vary. Media 100 has not officially blessed 8.2.2 and Tiger... I think the only thing they talk about now is the HD product.

I upgraded from OS9 to OSX.4 and wasn't able to install M100 8.2.2. Media 100 told me to install it in 10.3 and all will be fine. Still waiting on Panther to arrive.

I think it is much more likely that this is related to your CPU upgrade card than to OSX 10.4 itself...

[matt Short] "why do you feel its the cpu upgrade? everything else on the computer works great."

Because V8.2.2 works nicely for others on 10.4 (including our short tests here), and you have taken everything else out of your CPU that could cause the problem. Plus, CPU upgrades were never officially recommended or supported by Apple.

What is there to gain from upgrading your OS? Considering everything at stake there would have to be some extremely good benefits. If 10.2x is stable why move on? If it ain't broke don't break it.

Because Media 100 never fixed the numlock keys issue until 8.2.2 and 8.2.2 will only run (according to them) on 10.3 or better. No one locally is still selling 10.3 so I needed to go to 10.4....

If you haven't already bought 10.4 and want to get 10.3, CDW has it in stock.

This has always been the rule of thumb that I work by. What I've been telling anyone who's looking to update to 10.4 is create two partitions one with the set up you have now, 10.3.x for most, then put 10.4 on the other partition. This way if you have problems you can go back to the 10.3 setup and continue working.

Trying out the latest & greatest is fun. Media 100 should come out with a SD board that works on a G5, too. Although I am saving for a Media 100 HD, I'm also playing around with Motion and Combustion and a lot of other programs that soon will require 10.4. I actually LIKE spending money on equipment but Media 100 doesn't come out with cool stuff. Sigh...

Jim, you don't think Media 100 HD Versdion 10 is cool? Look at what it does and compare that with the others. We only want to edit our media and create productions, don't need cool, just good!

So people are using OS X 10.4.1 with media 100i and having no trouble? No one seems to say exactly that. Does it work or not? Trying to get a bonafide answer.

The reason we are interested in this question is that we have a maching that serves both Media 100 i users and Final Cut users. We want to be able to upgrade the system to use the latest FC5 and Tiger. Currently we are running 10.3.5.

Have any more folks tried Tiger with 8.2.2 since this thread was started? Any more results to mention? Since Quicktime 7 was such a major change, that's where I'd be a bit nervous with the M100. Maybe dual boot is the answer.

Thanks,
Scott

Anytime you are upgrading a major change (or even relatively minor ones for that matter), it is far safer to just add another harddrive and use a dual boot system -- especially when drives are so cheap nowadays.
