I have a Leaf Cantare digital back for Mamiya RZ2 ,TAXI- PCI card , old Power Mac G4 , mirror doors, but can not load Leaf Cantare 8.4.6 on to OSX 10.5.8, also have tried OSX 10.4.11-software on this will download but does not see camera. I have been told OS 9.22 must be used. Will any other version of OSX 10-- , make this system work? Computer guy says I can not get this G4 back to 9.22 because 10.5.8 changed motherboard ? HELP. Thanks,Greg

Anyone who has ever used the Leaf Contare, do you recall the last Mac operating system it worked on? Thanks Greg

From memory, 10.4.X was working fine with the Cantare's PCI card and drivers so it could be something else that's not right with your setup.

I was never able to get my Cantare and Volare to work on OS10 even with blemish files. I use Leafcapture 7 on OS9 without the blemish files. Many Mirror door G4's can run OS9 but you need the original OS9 system disk that came with the computer. Another option is to download free netboot os9 from apple and modify the download by adding any needed system extentions. The easy way is to buy a single processor older G4 computer and a generic or retail os9 install disk from an online auction site.
