    Specs:
    27 iMac i5, MBP 13 & iMac 20, 2TB dual TC, AppleTV, iPh4S
    Wish my current was a PEBKAC - Ext HD which was mounting with FW800 for last few weeks will no longer show up. Tried many combinations of leads and sockets but have been reduced to FW400 until i find the cause of non appearance. This on the 24 - mounts OK with FW800 on the 20
