Sometime in the past few days the firwire connections on my otherwise brand new 1.4 powermac died. They did work when I brought it home (I've synced my iPod and transferred files from my old iMac in target disk mode.) Now I tried to transfer files yesterday (from the powermac to my powerbook) and nothing happened when i plugged it in. I subsequently connected a firefly drive and my iPod and nothing. Somesort of signal is being sent, becaue the iPod turned on after connecting it, but all that happened was the apple logo screen followed by the "OK to dissconnect" screen in a loop. I'm going to take the whole CPU to the Apple store at lunch since this is beyond my abilities. Any ideas out there that might save me the trip?
