Topic: FF800 and daisy-chained FW hard disk on iMac
I have an iMac 27-inch and am thinking of buying a FireFace 800, but my mac only has a single FW800 port (with no means of adding any more).
Has anyone had any luck daisy-chaining the Fireface with a firewire 800 / 400 hard disk? I've heard there are problems with the LaCie drives when doing this (I currently have an M-Audio projectmix, which drops out whenever there is any disk access, although it's second in the chain; I miss my old multiface).
tl; dr, my questions are:
1. Has anybody successfully (no drop-outs) daisy-chained a firewire hard disk with the Fireface?
2. If so, which brand / model, and, which order did you chain them in?
PS. I tried searching the forum, but only found a single post about this, and it didn't really answer my questions.
