iMac FW 800 + 400 Question
I'll explain what I'm wanting to do.
I want to plug an external RAID hard drive setup into my Al iMac via FW800 (Taurus RAID II).
I also want to plug an audio interface via FW400 in the iMac (havent decided on which yet).
I understand that if both are connected, that the FW800 will only run at FW400 (as they are on the same bus).
What I don't know is if this will cause the same sort of problems that occur when you have 2 x FW400 on the same bus... ie many audio interfaces seem to play up if there is anything else plugged in on the same bus.
I do have several work arounds (either getting a USB audio interface... which is more limiting with choice... or getting an ADDA converter instead and using the optical outs/ins on the iMac).
Can someone clear this up for me.
iMac Al 2.8, Event TR8s, Apogee Duet, G3 iBook, Talent?
