Topic: FW800 Lacie drive not mounting when connected via FF800 interface
I have a MacBook Pro and a FireFace800, connected via FW800. All is well with the interface. I also have a Lacie rugged external firewire drive. If I connect this drive directly to the MBP, it powers up and mounts as normal. If I connect it to the MBP via the FireFace800's second FW800 port (ie second device in the FW800 chain), it neither powers up nor mounts.
Is there a restriction regarding powering FW800 devices through the FireFace800? I even tried powering the Lacie drive with an external PSU, but it still doesn't power up or mount when chained onto the FireFace800.
I've tried different cables etc.
