Firewire Problem

hey folks
for some reason, my firewire port is not being recognised by the computer. i noticed this when my iPod Mini wasnt being recognised. i looked in system profiler and it said there was "no information found"

i have a feeling it may be a problem in software as the firewire port was working only a few hours ago and nothing has happened since then to give me any reason to suspect a hardware failure.

any suggestions are welcome. as a sidenote, i installed a program called PodManager to enable the transfer of music from my iPod to my computer using firewire. i doubt this is the cause, but someone may have info attaining to the reason.

QUOTE Thanks

mods can lock and delete this thread, the problem seems to have alleviated itself after a full shut down, restart, check and repair of permissions and an update to the iPod software.

thanks for your time and bandwidth
