I just put together an external HD w/ the following specs: -Seagate Barracuda 120 GB (new, so it's unformatted) -Macally Firewire 400 enclosure -OS X 10.3.6 -PowerBook 12" 1.33 GHz The HD spins up properly when powered up. Yet when I hook up the firewire cable... nothing. Well, almost nothing. The system profiler recognizes a "Firewire HDD" sometimes. After ~10 minutes it shows up in Disk Utility as a 111.9 GB drive (which is correct... but the capacity is shown as if it were formatted already?). Nothing ever shows up or is mounted in the Finder. If I try to format or partition the drive, Disk Utility hangs! To test the case, I hooked up my iPod to the daisy chain firewire port on the case and it mounted just fine... so I'm thinking something's amiss with the HD? I set the jumper to master as instructed... any ideas on what could be wrong?
