Firewire Problems on an iMac...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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!
