Well, this is interesting. I took a FW800 drive today (hitachi g-tech) that works great. Repartitioned it using HFS+ and FAT (MS-DOS FAT) using Disk Utility.
Well, despite the fact that a linux box, a windows box, and a Snow Leopard box will mount the FAT drive just fine... the Lion box that formatted it? Yea.. not so much.
It mounts as a USB drive, connect it to FW and it just fails with.
11/11/11 2:15:45.046 PM diskarbitrationd: unable to probe /dev/disk2s3 (status code 0xFFFFFFFC).
11/11/11 2:15:45.000 PM kernel: disk2s3: I/O error.
So, anyone else with Lion.. give this a try.
Interestingly enough, I get the following window in disk utility.
