Hi! Here's my situation:

I bought a ministack 320 gigs as an external hard drive for my powerbook G4. I was especially interested into the hub features but I haven't been able to make it work, even following the user manual instructions. Is the hub features only working when connecting to a Mac Mini or can it work with any other computer?

My ministack is connected to my powerbook using a firewire 400 and the ministack is on mode 1394a as recommended when using a firewire connection with the computer. I can see the drive icon on my computer and I've been using it with no problem so far (exept for the fan noise) but nothing work if connected to the other usb or firewire port on the ministack.

Thanks for helping!
QUOTE Thanks
