Look at the connectors on the outside of the case.
If there is a socket for an AC adapter, then it requires one.
If there is no such socket, then none is required.

How do i boot my mac book air in fw mode?


FireWire booting, as the name implies, is the ability to start up a computer from an internal or external FireWire drive.
FireWire booting is possible on all Macintosh models that have built-in FireWire ports with the exception of the Power Macintosh G3 (Blue & White) and the Power Mac G4 (PCI Graphics) models. You may need to upgrade the computer's firmware before FireWire booting will work. You can download the latest firmware for your computer from the Apple Software Updates Web site at http://www.apple.com/swupdates.
Note: Do not confuse FireWire booting with FireWire target disk mode as described in this article: "FireWire Target Disk Mode".
If you are unsure if your computer has a FireWire port, look for ports that look like those in Figure 1, or look for the FireWire symbol shown in Figure 2.

Follow these steps to start up your computer from an external FireWire drive:

    1. Ensure the proper drivers for the FireWire drive are installed in your computer.2. Connect the FireWire drive to your computer and ensure the icon for the disk appears on the Finder desktop.
    3. Install the appropriate system software onto the disk.
    4. Open the Startup Disk control panel and select the FireWire disk.
    5. Restart the computer.The computer should now start up from the FireWire drive. If it does not, make sure you are using third-party drivers that support FireWire booting. Also ensure that the FireWire disk mounts to the Finder desktop and that the system software was properly installed. If it still does not mount, contact the vendor of the device to ensure it can be used as a startup disk.

I have a Firelite Smartdisk External 60G hard drive - Model #FWFL60-N which I bought to back up my previous MacBook. It only has FireWire outlets and cable with only FireWire ends - no USB port...


Hi Selina It was a big mistake for Apple to omit the FW port on the white MacBook. The problem you hilite is the reason I don't recommentd the macbook to any of my clients. However, the problem is solveable - although you may/will have to do some breaking and entering.
There is no cable adaptor - nor will there ever be, the protocols are so radically different that they can never talk to each other.
The simplest option is to connect your drive to another mac that has got FW (800 or 400 - it doesn't matter as long as the cable will connect the two units) then use file sharing to transfer the conent of the drive to you MacBook either by ethernet (preferable) or by wifi (much slower).
The breaking and entereing option imvolves opening up the firelilte and removing its HD (it's easy) then get a unit like this Overview or this http://www.maplin.co.uk/sata-hard-drive-usb-docking-station-222999
There are other much cheaper units and they all work fairly well. I have several as I'm up against your problem regularly

External Super Writemast DVD drive is connected via Firewire. The S.M.A.R.T. status says "Not Supported" on my imac os 10.6.6


Hello,
The S.M.A.R.T. status is used to communicate information about a Hard Disk Drive.
Since your product is a DVD drive, it not does send S.M.A.R.T. information so MAC list it as "Not Supported" for that feature.
It is normal with a DVD drive and you have nothing to worry about.
Regards,

Where do I get lost cords for this monitor?


are you mention about the AC adapter or just power cords. For pwer cords is everywhere, but ac adapter you have to know the specification for the power input/output and size of plug since I can't tell the model on your description.

Apple mac G5 freezes when booting up.


Try unplugging all Firewire/USB devices. Also, unplug the power cord from the computer. This resets the logic board. If that doesn't isolate the problem, put your Original system CD that came with the computer and hold down the C key. Boot up and run Disk Utility. Run the repair disk and then repair disk permissions. Reboot and try booting your system again.

The hard drive powers up but wont connect


Is the FW drive have been formatted? You may need to run the Disk Utility on your Mac to use the external drive. Make sure you choose FAT 32 as the format option if you want to use the drive in both Mac and Windows machines.

Macintosh computer not recognizing the LaCie external hard drive


1. If you have another firewire device test this device with the same firewire cord you are currently useing for the LaCie. (if there is no reasponse form the other device then it is the cord it's self) If not then 2. Check the Leads on the back of the LaCie where the firewire plugs in if the copper looks tarnished use a ear swab dipped in Lime Away or CLR to clean it then wait for it to dry and try the cord again. 3. if these physical connections are in good connection with each other and the firewire in port on your computer and on the LaCie are good then. Run a "Permissions" verify and repair through the disk utility program on your Mac with the LaCie turned on and plugged in.
FINALLY if none of these options repair the LaCie you may have to open the LaCie up and check to make sure the soldering from the firewire to the chip set is still in tact. I hope this helps Happy Macing.

Having Problem with both LaCie hard drives being recognized on both macs


Try to connect to another computer, and see if it recognizes the drive. If Not, you can dismantle LaCie and take the disk out.

Connecto your disk to another external box (USB or Firewire) so you can have access to you data.
