macOS Catalina Support on PC Drives

Thank you for using our products.
The following symptoms have been confirmed in the macOS 10.15 Catalina environment.

[Confirmed Symptoms]

  1. The drive firmware updater cannot be used.
  2. The drive utility cannot be used. (ex. PureRead settings and Advanced Quiet Drive Feature settings cannot be changed.)

[Future Support]

For these two symptoms, we are considering to support with the following plans.
With regard to symptom 1. above, we will release a macOS Catalina supported new drive updater by the end of January, 2020.
When the updater is ready, we will make an announcement on this webpage.

  • * We will sequentially replace the current firmware updater to the Catalina-supporting version.
  • * The drive can be used in macOS Catalina without any update.

With regard to symptom 2. above, we are presently investigating the issue.
When our investigation is completed, we will make an announcement on this webpage.

"Drive Utility Lite" cannot be used with "Forced Ejection" function and "PureRead Status Monitor" function, which were conventionally installed due to the large impact of specification changes in macOS Catalina.
