When attempting to read a 2 gig PC jaz disk on my Powermac 9600 with PC Exchange v 2.05 I get a message "block alocation is greater than or equal to 32K". and the jaz spits the disk out. Is there a newer version that I'm missing or am I stuck until Apple fixes the larger volume problem?

Make sure that you used the Jaz Tools (on the PC) to format the Jaz disk.  Additionally, make sure that you don't format it into a FAT32 volume.

The MacOS acts up when it looks at FAT32.  You may encounter additional conflicts, if you are using OS 8.1's HFS+.

I hope this helps.
