Question about Computers & Internet
Try resetting your PRAM to 'reset' your firewire-port:
- Turn off your iMac - Press and hold command-option-P-R (command = applekey, option = alt) - While holding this combination, turn on the iMac. - Keep holding this combination until you have heard the 'startup chime' 3 times. - Allow your mac to boot up.
If this didn't work, try removing the power cord from your mac after turning it off, and leaving it unplugged for 15 minutes before turning it back on.
These steps usually work for me when I have a firewire-problem. I hope it helps for you.

Testimonial: "the firewire port is fine; recognizes two other drives connected via firewire, so resetting the PRAM won;t make a difference."
