You can use both at the same time! Which model of macbook pro is it? Differing models have different power allowances from the firewire sockets and on several models there is a maximum allowable (shared).

If you check the specs on Apple's site it will tell you. On the core2duo iMac for example you get 15watts between the FW400 and FW800, on the santa rosa you get 7 watts specifically for each one.

Experienced computer user, applications programmer and component level service engineer but came to the Apple platform with intro of intel!. Pro-photographer and director of electronics company.
