Firewire Problems on an iMac...

I have a 2008 24" iMac (LOVE it), but I'm having FireWire issues.


1) FireWire is recognized in Sys Profiler, so it's not a catastrophic failure.

2) When connected, I am getting power from the FireWire port.

3) Hard-Drives and Cameras are not recognized by the OS.


Any suggestions? I have reset the PRAM and all that...but if anyone has any thoughts or has experienced similar, I would be very interested in hearing them! It's not a huge deal, but I do have a FireWire hard-drive and would love to free up one of my USB ports.


Thanks in advance!

I've had similar problems with my FW800 Drobo, resolved simply changing the FW cable that was defective.
