Just got my new (and first) Mac Pro this week.
I have two Maxtor ONE TOUCH external drives (250gig and 300gig)
that I originally had running under Windows.
I am not certain if I formatted the drives under Windows or not, but INDIVIDUALLY hooked up through a FIREWIRE connection, the Mac Pro did recognize its contents.
The problem, however, occurs when I try to plug BOTH drives
into the two firewire ports and turn them BOTH on at once. The
Mac will only display ONE of the drives, not both.
Is this normal?
Also, is the Macintosh able to read and write to external drives over 200GB? I thought I read that this was a problem (though I may be wrong).
Thanks in advance!
