Hello,

I currently have a Lacie USB 3.0 drive with firewire inputs. Would it be possible to daisy chain this drive to another of the same model via firewire, and run the output to my MBP through USB 3.0? As long as the first drive in the sequence can utilize USB 3.0 speeds I'm set. The daisy chained drive is just going to be a mirror.

Thanks!
