    Hi Morten,

    Is your USB Kernel downgrade still working for you?

    Hi Aitan

    Yes - I've had zero problems since. Upgraded to 10.6.6 and still no problems, but I have not checked if the kernel extensions has been replaced by the (combo) update.

    I have upgraded to 10.6.6 and didn't have any problems for about 2 weeks. Then the problem slowly came back where the USB Drobo or sometimes USB hard drives will be dropped/disconnect. I had to downgrade my OS back to 10.6.4 (for the second time, first time when upgraded to 10.6.5) to have a stable system again. I am not going to miss the new app store.

    I only have problems with DROBO dropping now (10.6.6) if ANOTHER usb device is attached to my MacBook and multiple wireless users are accessing different files.

    For example: Attach iPhone and use/share internet tethering and share DROBO with my buds while we are on the road. The system then drops DROBO after about 1-2 hours of streaming video from its volume and internet activity from multiple clients.

    So take away everything, just use a single USB device (DROBO or iPhone), with no sharing, and attached USB devices work flawless - one at a time.

    What's the point of having a Mac if I can't do what I want with it ? Use it a 'Different Way' ...

    My issues was losing the connection between iTunes and Drobo (I use DroboShare for NAS):

    I keep my music/movie library on the Drobo but whenever I tried to add a large file or large number of files to iTunes simultaneously the connection to the Drobo would be lost.

    What "seems" to have fixed this for now.

    1. Completely reset my DroboShare (you can find instructions at the Drobo site)
    2. Disable "keep iTunes files organized (Preferences->Advanced)
    3. Disable "automatically look for Album art
    4. Diable Ping
    5. Disable Share Libraries
    6. Disable Home sharing
    7. Diable Genius

    So now it's a question of re-adding the above to see which one caused the issue (not that I'll bother as I don't need them that badly and I prefer to have a stable connection)

    Hope this may help someone.

    @svmodica not just with the mac pro, but with 5,1 unibody MacBook as well. With the 10.6.7 update drobo is even worse. I like the idea of this product, but I'm very disappointed with its performance to date. I do NOT recommend it.

    Interestingly I am having this same issue between a brand new 10.7.3 Lion Server and 4 MacBook Airs, no Drobo, after an hour or so, the connection just drops to the server and I loose server shares and shared printers.


    Did you or anyone else come up with a definitive solution?

    Do the Macbooks run a screensaver?

    Do they sleep?


    If either, try changing that.


    What happens if you run a script that writes to a file on the server once a minute?
