I've been unable to transfer XCode 3.2.6, a 4gbyte .dmg file, from a USB flash drive to 2 snow leopard MacBooks. It stops at 2.2gbytes with an error. The flash drive is formatted with NTFS from a win7 machine.

How do I get XCode on Snow Leopard? Should I do something special with the flash drive?

I understand 3.2.6 is the last XCode version to work on Snow Leopard?


Latest version of Xcode that works for Snow Leopard is Xcode 4.2 and iOS 5 for Snow Leopard. It's only 1.64 GB. To access it, log in to http://developer.apple.com/ios, look for "Other Xcode" button, click it and you should see the following

  • Excellent, I'll try that. What about for Leopard? Will that work for Leopard as well? – at01 Jul 6 '12 at 16:51
  • Xcode 3.2.6 with iOS 4.2 is the Xcode for Leopard. Your copy may be corrupted during download which explains the error you reported. – Global nomad Jul 8 '12 at 16:15
  • When I login to the developer downloads section of the Apple website, I just see "Xcode 3.2.6 and iOS SDK 4.3 for Snow Leopard" and "Xcode 3.2.5 and iOS SDK 4.2". Seems that 3.2.5 is the latest for Leopard? – at01 Jul 8 '12 at 20:28
  • The latest 3.2.x I have in my backup is Xcode 3.2.5 and iOS 4.2 for Leopard (file system 3.78 GB). I gave you the benefit of the doubt when you stated 3.2.6 in your question. :) – Global nomad Jul 8 '12 at 20:32
  • I thought the latest was 3.2.6 for snow leopard and 3.2.5 for leopard. The problem seems to be an issue with USB drives and macs though... I can't seem to transfer these big files fully. – at01 Jul 8 '12 at 20:56
