    Download won't mount

    StuffIt Expander or StuffIt Deluxe (v8.0.2) are unable to decode and mount the updater for DiskWarrior v3.0.1

    Error:

    The file "DiskWarriorCDUpdate3.0.1.hqx" does not appear to be compressed or encoded. The application "StuffIt Expander.app" might be able to open this file. Would you like to try opening the file using "StuffIt Expander.app"? [Don't Try] [Try]

    I've tried repeatedly with no luck.

    Will Mount but not update

    I used Stuffit Expander 7.03 and everything goes alright untill the Updater wanted to update the image it created from the original CD. I got error message 3007.

    I solved 3007

    For me, at least. Check out your Console app for a log of what the installer did. I use an iDisk on the desktop at all times. The console shows that, after making the disk image of my old DiskWarrior CD, the installer was attempting to update not that disk image, but the iDisk! Of course, it failed. I unhooked the iDisk, the problem was solved and the CD burnt.

    No problems here...

    ... installation went very smoothly. DW 3.0.1 does seem to be a little faster on my TiPB (OS 10.3.2, Stuffit Standard 8.0.2).

    If you're having trouble

    Go over to versiontracker.com for a list of trouble areas and how to work around them. Personally, I had no problems whatsoever updating.

    hqx problem

    If the download ends with ".hqx", change it to ".dmg".

    Internet Explorer download of the DiskWarrior file is an hqx file but Safari download of the same file is a dmg file. Strange but true.

    Great way of updating

    I had no problems downloading using Safari on my antiquated B&W G3/450.

    Installed and updated without a hitch. I wish other companies would use similar method of updating their software that needs to boot from a CD (hello? Norton?). Faster and easier than having to re-order a $20 update CD. Nicely done, Alsoft.

    From your neighbor in The Woodlands!

    Error 256

    I can't get it to work either but for this reason: I follow the instructions, start the updater, insert my DW3.0 CD, it creates a new image, ejects my CD, then displays "Cannot mount image, error 256".

    Same result 4 times. Any suggestions? Disappointing, Alsoft.

    Doens't work?

    I had no troubles decompressing the file. I ran the utility and created a new CD with now troubles. Very clever. Unfortunately the CD will not boot my G5. It says it will in the startup disk pane. But it doesn't. Boots my TiBook swell.
