    Exclamation firewire crapped out
    im using a LaCie ext. harddrive on my emac
    and all of a sudden nothing appears on the
    desktop when I connect it.
    same thing with my videocamera, wont connect

    What could cause my comp to not read devices
    connected to the firewire ports?

    Thanks

    Cool
    Are you using the same firewire cable for both the camera and the disk drive?

    no, both devices have their respective cables

    does it have to be a hardware problem or is their something i can fix with my keyboard/mouse
    (maybe reinstall something??)

    it seems to be to be most likely a hardware issue
