FW Drive not coming up?

Recommended Posts

This happened to me and the fix was simple.


I had a situation where I had a FW camera and a FW drive plugged into the same machine, though they were in two different ports. I could only get one or the other of them to be recognized at a time. The solution was to turn off the firewire networking. In short, it is possible to share networked resources via firewire, as opposed to CAT5.


Open the Network preference pane, select the firewire connection, and set it to off.


Try mounting your FW device again.
