Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
There is a place under your apple that says about this mac.
THen on the bottom of that window it will say more about this mac, click there.
THen go to your contents window and look under hardware. There you will see a file named "firewire". Click on it. If you see information under the area Fire wire Bus than your fire wire bus is working and the problem is your cable from the computer to the Drive. If you do not see any information there or something that says, "Firewire bus not connected or unavailable than that part of your card is messed up on *********** board. If it is not the cable and your machine is under warranty, take it to an apple store and have them replace the board. (Back up your important data first!)
The simple solution with out having to have your machine repaired is to buy a PCI Fire wire card and install that. You should have a separate connection on the front of the mac that is different and check to see if this one is not working either with a new cable.
