Powerbook G4 multiple firewire device problems

Recommended Posts



ive got a 15" PPC powerbook g4 rinning tiger, a focusrite saffire and a g-tech g-raid external HD.

both of these devices run through firewire. 400 for the saffire and 800 for the HD.

the saffire works fine all the time. however when i use the hd is is very unpredictabe.

randomly the HD will make and application freeze and become 'not responding' (usually finder, but if another application is using the drive that will go to).


is this a known problem with the powerbooks? im presuming that it has something to do with the firewire bus. the drive works fine on other computers.
