Yes, I too own 4 of these fabulous little drives that I am grieving losing when I upgrade to 10.6.  I am disappointed with Buffalo's choice to ignore my needs and the many others who invested in their company and product.  I hope Buffalo will make this right soon.  I would like to remain a loyal customer, but to be honest it's very difficult when they do not adequately support their products.

Tech support - This must be one heck of a problem, any update on a fix please? Will the fix for Snow Leopard also work with Lion or should I stay on Snow Leopard while I wait for a fix?

 

Thanks in advance

I accidentally found a simple work-around (don't ask how)...if you have a virtual Windows program (like VMWare), open it, login to Drive, then toggle back to OS Snow Leopard.  Miraculously, it was there on my iMac desktop open.  It appears that you can access the drive in XP and it stays mounted.  Hope it works for you...obviously it is not a seamless bridge, but easier than transferring toanother drive, etc.

I'm as far from a computer geek as they come.  I literally was just logging into my drive via VMWare to see if data had been lost...dumb luck.

Can any-one confirm whether this will work with OSX Mountain Lion?
